As we get older and older

Pin It

ATT0000111Another year has passed

And we’re all a little older.

Last summer felt hotter

And winter seems much colder.

 

I rack my brain for happy thoughts,

To put down on my padATT0000222

But lots of things that come to mind,

Just make me kind of sad.

 

I used to look forward to Christmas Day,

But now the bills I cannot pay

 

There was a time not long ago

When life was quite a blast.ATT0000333

Now I fully understand

About ‘Living in the Past’

 

We used to go to weddings,

Football games and lunches.

Now we go to funeral homes

And after-funeral brunches.

 

We used to have hangovers,ATT0000444

From parties that were gay.

Now we suffer body aches

And wile the night away.

 

We used to go out dining,

And couldn’t get our fill.ATT0000555

Now we ask for doggie bags,

Come home and take a pill.

 

We used to often travel

To places near and far.

Now we get sore butts

From riding in the car.ATT0000666

 

We used to go out shopping,

For new clothing at the mall

But, now we never bother…

All the sizes are too small

 

We used to go to nightclubs

And drink a little booze.

Now we stay home at night

And watch the evening news.

 

That, my friend is how life is,

And now my tale is told.

So, enjoy each day and live it up…

Before you’re too darned old!
