Songwriter:
Bryan Adams & Jim Vallance


J's Journal:
According to the Bible, people used to live a lot longer than they do today. Adam and a number of his descendants lived to ages over 900! The oldest age recorded in the Bible is 969, attained by a guy named Methuselah, the grandfather of Noah (Genesis 5:27). No matter how old you are now, you have no guarantees for tomorrow unless you give your heart to Christ. That's why the Bible says in the Psalms and in Hebrews (three times): "Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts." We started jamming on this song in practice back in 1997, and I got all the parody words over the next few days. I remember having some of them come to me while I was at Wal-Mart.

969
Parody of "Summer of '69" by Bryan Adams
(Gen. 5:1-32, Romans 10:6-9)

You got to learn a little history -- Oldest man in Bible times
Name was called Methuselah -- Was nine hundred and sixty-nine
We had some guys come close -- Almost ran for a thousand yards
Didn't they quit till they got buried -- They should've known it just was too hard
When we look back now -- Those fellas seemed to live forever
And you just get annoyed -- cause you don't wanna believe it
Those guys were blessed with such long lives
Ain't no use in explainin' -- if you're gonna doubt the truth
Spent your life doubtin' the Bible -- and that's the fountain of youth yeah
Standin' knockin' on your door -- He told ya you could live forever
I hope you understand -- the truth is it's now or never
These are the last days of your life
That should be somethin' that sticks in your mind
Yeah, we're runnin' out of time -- But the young forget that they need eternal life
To get somethin' that last forever -- forever -- Whoa! Yeah!
And all the time we're agin' -- Look at every wrinkle comin' on
Some guys don't even live to be 16 -- Think about that while I end this song
Standin' knockin' on your door -- He told you how to live forever
I hope you understand -- Hebrews three says it's now or never
These are the last days of your life. That should be somethin' that sticks in your mind
