About my long retired Eddie Bauer backpack (disguised as a song about an old, withered drunkard).


Eddie's seen better times, he's fighting for his life
The stains of old age are quite apparent
He's seen his fair share of hard times

Born in 1920 was a fresh and eager youth
But alcohol abuse and trouble with the law
Left him all locked up

He's a wilting old man know one will lend him a hand old Eddie
His last breath of air he'll soon be trash goodbye Eddie

His career was long and successful
He worked hard as staff at the high school
But when his time came, he left that building
And worked as a private consultant

Had a tough time with his clients
His clients busted Eddie for fraud
But Eddie got out of it, he got out of it
Eddie was always so suave

He's a senile old man, nobody understands him, Eddie
Flowers come soon, this man is through goodbye, Eddie

I feel bad it had to end this way, it's been a long journey, Eddie
It must be strange to lose himself
It must be strange to lose yourself old Eddie, ba ba ba bah!
