We are the old

Al, playing his pastrami laced solo for "We Are The Old"

We Are The Old is a song performed by Old Aid, a supergroup consisting of Al "Axl" Bundy and musicians John Sebastian, Peter Noone, Mark Lindsay, Spencer David, Richie Havens, and Robby Krieger.

It is heard in the season 7 episode, Rock of Ages

StoryEdit

After Al infiltrates his way into the first class lounge at the airport and convince the musicians that he is "Axl Bundy" from the 1960s band "Shoes and Socks", and jammed with them back in their heyday, he is invited to join the musicians on their flight and perform with them for a charity event.

The song and its name are a parody of the 1985 charity single "We Are The World" by the celebrity charity group, USA for Africa (United Support of Artists for Africa), while the supergroup's name is a parody of the 1984 charity supergroup, Band Aid. The mid to late 80s saw a rash of such "dream teams" in various fields of music, putting out charity songs.

LyricsEdit

[All]
We are the old
We've got arthritis
Our gums are weak

[Richie Havens]
So weak

[All]
From gingivitis

[John Sebastian]
We are the old
We've got arthritis

[All]
We are the one who wear bifocals
And have bursitis

[Spencer Davis]
There are people younger
But we heed another call

[Richie Havens]
We really need the money
Our accountants took it all

[Peter Noone]
We sing to you
Those who have money
Once we was cool

[Al "Axl" Bundy]
But now we just dress funny

[John Sebastian]
We need your help
So please, please dig deep

[Richie Havens]
Don't call after ten
Cuz we'll be asleep

[Robby Krieger]
We have medicare
And anti-gas pills

[Mark Lindsay]
But without your help
We can't pay our alimony bills

[Richie Havens]
Take it Axl!

[Al "Axl" Bundy]
Plays instrumental solo with his sandwich

[All]
We are the old

[Peg, Kelly and Bud Bundy]
They are the old

[All]
We have arthritis

[Peg, Kelly and Bud Bundy]
They have arthritis

[All]
Once we were gods
Now golf excites us

[Bud Bundy]
Golf excites them

[All]
So write a check

[Richie Havens]
A really big one

[All]
For our December
There's one more verse
But we can't remember

[All]
La la la laaaa
La la la laaaa
La la la
la la la la la

[Peter Noone]
Sing the song, Jimmy!

[All]
La la la laaaa

[Peter Noone]
Nanana na na

[All]
La la la laaaa

[Peter Noone]
Nanana na na

[All]
La la la
la la la la la

[Al "Axl" Bundy]
One more time!

[All]
La la la laaaa
La la la laaaa
La la la
la la la la la
