lyrics

It's been a long time since I've seen ya, La Holy Alahambra
You used to be yellow and now you're pink
or were you rose and now you're beige?
I can't remember
'cause it's been a long time

Krish dropped the keys from the top wing
and then I caught 'em without seein
it was dark and I didn't have my glasses on
as if he'd channeled them to me
He said Whattup my Jesus?
It's been a long time

And when I went up into his holy abode
with the Creedence cover lookin down on all the people below
on Peachtree Road he told me:

When you're 42
you will be a man
No more twenty-somethins
and thirty-somethins
All you have to do
is live 'til 42

And when you're 42
you'll be a success
No more gettin nothin
and payin nothin
Nothin left to do
but live for 42

Dippin garlic cloves and apples into a bucket of honey
closed my eyes and started feelin the keys
that organ sounded so sweet I started trippin
and then I can't remember
'cause it's been a long time

And when he went up into his Krished-out pose
on the yoga mat lookin down on all the people below
on Peachtree Road he told me

That while you are still young
try to have a life
try not to get stuffy
When you've had enough he
told me what to do:
play 432

And once you 42
you will know some things
about baking muffins
and knowin nothin's
not so hard to do
once you 42

Nothin's hard to do
when you 42

42! 42! 42!
42! Yolohollaalahambra!
42! Yolohollaalahambra!
42! Yolohollaalahambra!
42! Yolohollaalahambra! Yolohollaalahambra! Yolohollaalahambra!
