The Lyrics

Dedicated to all you senior citizens....
I am getting old
My grandkids all are grown up
Bones are creaking, work is getting harder
Hair is graying, skin is wrinkling
Sleeping soon ignites
I'm getting tired of this job
Hope I'm fired!

Getting old, getting old
Right now it's quitting time
Getting old, getting old
Right now it's quitting time
Getting old, getting old
Right now it's quitting time
Getting old, getting old
The only way out is retire

God has blessed me with this job, yes
But I want to retire
The rates getting higher
God has blessed me with this job, yes
But I want to retire
The rates getting higher

Screw this low-wage pay
I wish I could lose my job
Gas has gone up, food is real expensive
Blamed the Dubya, blamed Obama, no one would listen!
The time has come to rest my bones
Take a pink slip!

Getting old, getting old
Right now it's quitting time
Getting old, getting old
Right now it's quitting time
Getting old, getting old
Right now it's quitting time
Getting old, getting old
The only way out is retire

God has blessed me with this job, yes
But I want to retire
The rates getting higher
God has blessed me with this job, yes
But I want to retire
The rates getting higher

Must retire!!!
Must retire!!!

Getting old, getting old
Right now it's quitting time
Getting old, getting old
Right now it's quitting time
Getting old, getting old
Right now it's quitting time
Getting old, getting old
The only way out is retire

God has blessed me with this job, yes
But I want to retire
The rates getting higher
God has blessed me with this job, yes
But I want to retire
The rates getting higher

Must retire!!!
Must retire!!!
Sorry if it's a little repetitive.

May be repetitive, but still a good parody! You probably don't want to play that kind of song for the elderly people, unless they're without hearing aids! LOL! Now that they plan to retire (since they're 65 or older), they are now eligible for Medicare A) Hospital insurance (covers inpatient hospital stays overnight. B) Medical Insurance (pays services not covered by Medicare Part A, such as x-ray exams, lab tests, outpatient hospital procedures. Medicare Part C) Medicare Advantage Plans, also called Medicare+ Choice, and D) Prescription Drug Plans. Anyways, I know you're 15 and all, but here's an early pension check of $555, maybe you can give to your grandparents.

Thanks, Christie! It is repetitive, I know, but the original is repetitive as well.

DJ your the most frequent parodist this week you must have loads of ideas in that head of yours I agree with CMM one thing Iike to do with OS that have repeitiive choruses is try and vary it up a little it can add more to your song. 5'S for the senior respect

Thanks for the comment, Gari J! Really? I'm the most frequent parodist of the week? Awesome! I'll take your advice on changing the chorus. I'd like to take a moment to thank all the people who've read my parodies and commented them: Christie Marie M, Below Average Dave, Silver Power, Gari J, Chance Gollnick, Mark Scotti, Tommy Turtle, Cody Slusher, Shirley Temple, Johnny Pyro, norCALvotrix, unKnownVo, and CalVOmess. (Man, that's a lot!) I have started to work on a song list for Elite Beat Agents: AmIRight Edition. EBA was a rhythm action game for Nintendo DS in which you played as FBI agents who helped troubled citizens by doing motivational song and dance. If I ever get it done, you'll find it as a comment on my parody "Osu Tatakae Ouendan". Thanks again for all the positive feedback!

Agreed with Christie Marie and Gari J. This is repetitive, but very good. Please write me into your Elite Beat Agents parody, I've been involved with this site in some way or another for almost 10 years.

Thanks, Andria! Here's how the whole EBA thing is gonna work. I will try to get my fellow AmIRight parodists to either write original parodies or link to one of their existing parodies, and I will write the scenarios. There will be a total of 19 songs: 16 regular, and 3 bonus. All of them should be funny except for one, which should be dramatic and serious. However, the last scenario will be two parts. So far, two parodists have been confirmed: me and Andria. Parodists will be confirmed only if they ask and I agree. However, since she's my friend here, I would like Christie Marie M to be part of this when she returns from her trip. The parodies shall follow the main AmIRight guidelines: no cursing, no commercial songs/TV themes (unless they have more than 10 unique lines), no whining if you didn't get in it, and no berating other AmIRight members. If you want to pull out of the EBA A.I.R. project, if you want to contribute to it, or if you have any questions, just comment me on either this parody or my Ouendan parody. I do not accept emails, mainly because I don't have an email account yet. If we all pull together and try our best, we could have another great AmIRight opera. To quote Agent J "Music lives!"

I must ask a question, Andria: Do you mind if I re-upload the "Pretty Far From A Tiger" parody with the EBA scenarios under the parodist name "Elite Beat Agents: AmIRight Edition (An AmIRight Opera Managed by DJ Blaze)? I'll credit you for your parodies in the description, as will I every other parodist who is in it if they agree. It would be the easiest way to include an EBA-esque scenario and intervals in the parodies. Thanks in advance.
Andria - June 06, 2009 - Report this comment
Sure thing, DJ!
DJ Blaze - June 06, 2009 - Report this comment
Thanks, Andria! I'll use it for Episode 2 of EBA: AmiRight edition. Episode 1 will be set to "Ninjas Rejoice" by yours truly.
DJ Blaze - June 20, 2009 - Report this comment
I'm sad to say that the EBA Opera has been canceled for 3 reasons:
1. There aren't enough EBA fans on AmIRight,
2. I couldn't get enough people to help, and
3. I would rather work on regular parodies. Many apologies to Airfarcewon, who's parody "Buy Me A Balloon" was supposed to be in it, but never got in it.
Mission Failed. Regroup? (probably not)
