Madonna “Like a Boomer” at the Super Bowl

Being a boomer is not an easy thing to admit for me and inside I still feel like I’m 29 – but my outside says something a bit different. Watching the press events with Madonna it seems that she has been able to turn back and hold off the hands of time.

How did she do that? (OK we all know how she did some of it)

Each time I hear her voice come on the TV I run over grab my TiVo and freeze the screen, I’m looking for any hints that she is truly 52 years old. Yes you can have face work, lipo, laser and more, but as a boomer we know some things we can’t hide.  I’m looking at her knees, a droop in the neck, please anything so I can relate and see she too is ageing. Oh I can see just a hint in her elbow. Phew

Back in the 80′s when I was in my 20′s Madonna was at the top of her game. She was outrageous, outspoken, creative, innovative and controversial. I love the fact that she is doing the Super Bowl half time show, it makes me feel relevant in a strange way.

I have been married for over 25 years in a row to the same guy. We have four grown children, and just like Madonna, Demi, Rosie, and Heather I’m a boomer too. So in honor of “Madge” I have taken the liberty to rewrite one of her songs as maybe she would now change it and sing it now that she is over 50.

Sing this to the song “Like a Virgin” by Madonna

I made it through my midlife crisis
somehow I made it through
didn’t know how lost I was
but my body still brand-new
I still need to compete
with the upcoming Hollywood elite
but my arms are guns for real
come over and take a feel
shiny and new
like a Boomer
aging like a fine wine
like a Boomer
knowing how to stop time
it’s all mine
Gonna give you all my moves boy
at the Super Bowl show
Been saving it all for you
to show you this boomer can last
I’m so fine I can stop time
I’m so dam strong, even wear a thong
and my lover is so young
and his mom and I get along
and it’s fine she was a big fan of mine
Like a Boomer
able to stop time
Like a Boomer
showing women over 50 we can still look 29
yes 29 – ooh ooh ooh
I’m so fine
I don’t have one wrinkle line
My arms are strong and work fine
even my legs are well defined
I can show other Boomers how to feel
That my life is and can be real
We got nothing to hide
Like a Boomer
able to stop time
Like a Boomer
Ready for Super Bowl time
Showing the whole world
That Madonna is still fine
She’s a Boomer
She’s a Boomer
Boomer Super Bowl Ready
Boomer Super Bowl Ready
ooh ooh ooh
ooh ooh ooh
