    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.

    An urban legend (or perhaps more than a legend) is that the song was supposed to be In The Garden of Eden.

    However, the lead singer was "impaired" and slurred the words.

    After several takes it was produced In-A-Godda- Divata

    After several takes with no success in having unintelligible wording, the song was released as In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida.
