Jack & Diane
by John Mellencamp

A little ditty 'bout Jack & Diane
Two American kids growing up in the heart land
Jack he's gonna be a football star
Diane debutante in the back seat of Jacky's car
Suckin' on chilli dog outside the Tastee Freez
Diane sitting on Jacky's lap
Got his hands between her knees
Jack he says:
"Hey, Diane, let's run off behind a shady tree
Dribble off those Bobby Brooks
Let me do what I please"
Saying oh yeah
Life goes on, long after the thrill of living is gone
Sayin' oh yeah
Life goes on, long after the thrill of living is gone
Now walk on
Jack he sits back, collects his thoughts for a moment
Scratches his head, and does his best James Dean
Well, now then, there, Diane, we ought to run off to the city
Diane says:
"Baby, you ain't missing nothing"
But Jack he says:
"Oh yeah, life goes on, long after the thrill of living is gone"
Oh yeah
He says: "life goes on, long after the thrill of living is gone"
Oh, let it rock, let it roll
Let the bible belt come and save my soul
Holdin' on to sixteen as long as you can
Change is coming 'round real soon
Make us woman and man
Oh yeah, life goes on
A little ditty 'bout Jack and Diane
Two American kids doin' the best they can

I was young when first heard this but now at 66 I can confirm the lyrics, life does go on long after the thrill of living is LONG gone. Whatever age you're at, if you're young, make the most of it. One day you'll open your eyes in the morning, look in the bathroom mirror, and see an old face looking back at you, and your old bones will ache.

Just means you’ve made it.

If you still feel that way now that you’re about 70 (assuming you’re still alive?) might I suggest a solution?
There’s an “hospital” in Switzerland called “Dignitas” that will help you out.............unless you’ve found something worth living for?

"Hold onto 16 as long as you can". I did for a year, then I turned 17.
