Info Der Titelsong ist auch gleichzeitig das neueste Lied auf der CD, entstanden im Frühjahr 2008. Nichts Spektakuläres, bloss ein paar Gedanken über das Älterwerden und das Weitermachen. Der Titel "New Tricks For Old Dogs" war übrigens eher da als der Text selber.
Die Referenz auf den Beach-Boys-Song ist natürlich, wie der Fachmann und die Fachfrau schon längst erkannt haben, eine Referenz auf eine Referenz. Ich sage nur: "Long May You Run". Aber eigentlich hatte ich nur kein anderes Lied finden können, das ich sehr mag und dessen Titel sich auf "radio" reimt.

Black old dog is hangin’ ‘round my door
He’s not strolling thru the fields anymore
Stretches his belly towards the sun
That’s his little way of having fun

He’s been there
He’s done that
He’s thinking of the good old days
When it was easy just to make your way

CHORUS:
Sometimes it’s getting much too dreary
And the barnyard offers no more kicks
And even though he’s feelin’ much too weary
Oh sometimes – yes, sometimes:
Even old dogs got to learn new tricks

George and Terry are working on construction
They work all day, from dawn to dusk
And late at night in their sleazy hotel
They have some pills and beers and sleep quite well

But now and then,
Occasionally
They’re thinking of the good old day(s)
When it was easier to feel O.K.

CHORUS:
Sometimes it’s getting much too dreary
And the booze will get them no more kicks
Even though they’re feelin’ much too weary
Oh sometimes- yes, sometimes:
Even old dogs got to learn new tricks

Carl takes Peggy out each Saturday night
They go to town and they act quite polite
She picks the film, he pays the bill
They don’t talk much, they just keep still

And the radio
Plays “Caroline No”
They hum along with that old refrain
And take a trip down memory lane

CHORUS:
Sometimes it’s getting much too dreary
And the past will get them no more kicks
Even though they’re feelin’ much too weary
Oh sometimes- yes, sometimes:
Even old dogs got to learn new tricks
