Mick Jagger turns 73 today.
And, since his 29-year old GF is preggo, there’ll yet be another mini-Mick or Mickette loose in the world.
Sounds like old Mick is gettin’ plenty of satisfaction these days.
Hey, I’ve got to give the guy credit…
He works out daily.
He’s probably in better shape at 73 than most are at 23.
He’s had a life of opportunity and overcoming adversity as most do.
Earned a living at what he loves to do and still doing it…
But here’s the screwy thing.
His oldest kid is like 45-years old.
Not only is his oldest kid physically old enough to have had his girlfriend…
His 21-year old grand kid, a mere 8-years younger than his GF, is preggo too.
So, his new born kid, with his 29-year old girlie-friend, will probably be younger than his great, grandchild.
Starts to screw with your head a bit when you think of the relationship nest.
I’m tellin’ ya, somehow, this has to work out to Mick singing that old deal, “I am my Own Grandpa.”
Here’s Mick’s birthday gift to you from all this…
When it comes to your lyrics, your listener doesn’t want to pain his brain trying to figure it out.
Needs to be creative, yes, but straightforward and easy to follow.
Writing from real life is good, that really gets you in the lyric.
Writing detail to the nth degree or in this case with Mick’s family tree looking like a Weeping Willow…
He’d be hard pressed to get people to understand in a verse or two how his little bundle of joy might be in the same kindergarten class as his kid’s kid’s kid.
Let’s keep things simple and chronological as your audience will understand it.
