This song was ruthlessly rejected.
It was based on a 'softer idea than ususal' by
Charlie. "I'm not going to write a song about turning 60. But, let's
just say, I considered the challenge of writing about getting older. Maybe it was Christmas coming on and I was getting
sentimental. It's the kind of song that if Neil Young did it, people would say 'That's amazing! The guy is so honest,
he's writing from the heart.' I played it to a couple of people, who went, 'Oh wow! That's really sweet.'" However,
their manager, Ian Grenfell, vetoed it immediately. "He heard it and said 'Fucking no. You're not that old. Leave it out - you're not
fucking Clive Dunn" - Jim, Classic Pop Magazine, March 2020
It goes without saying that it's unlikely to ever see the light of day.
