When you get older - mind and body plays a game To keep forgetting things, and others, you blame Fat stays much longer, and, if that isn’t enough! Your hair changes colour, and turns into fluff!
Your eyes 👀 go all cloudy, can’t see, like you did You say hello to strangers, the dust is now hid lips disappear, now impossible to pout 👄 Arthritis and cataracts, not to mention the gout
A shiny brand new hip or, a brand new pair of knees The fun really begins though, when you cough or sneeze! Getting down on the floor - can be easily done Getting back up again, is when it’s really fun!
Eye lashes eyebrows, becoming quite sparse Luscious thick hair, a thing of the past Teeth that were Once fixed, gleaming and white Now in a glass, by my bed, at night
Things going downhill, this is quite plain gnarly feet and varicose veins Body all covered, with blemishes and warts This is me now? Who’d of ever thought!
Feel like a boat left too long under water Barnacles appearing in every crease and corner Bristles sprouting, right on me chin What sort of sick game, are we’re playing in?
Aches and pains, moans and groans Can’t hear anybody on the phone? Food more important, than romance or lust A sleep in the afternoon, now, always a must
Even as the pearly gates are nearing We thought it fun, to take away your hearing Make jobs that were easy to, now really hard I’ve more fun for you, so, be on your guard!
You learn to merge into this new phrase of life Either that or, you could go under the knife? Fit into your body, with joy and pride Be happy, You’re still alive!! You haven’t yet died!
