The Lyrics

My 50th birtdhay is February 20 (hopefully I've timed this right and this parody was posted on my birthday). So now I'm not just an old f@rt, I'm officially a card-carrying member of the American Association of Retired People....
Backache has been diagnosed by my MD
Had to take a pill last night
Hair is going gray and I've got "urgency"
Yeah, I think the time is right
I'm joining the AARP
'Cause you know, I've just turned 50, yeah
I'm joining AA
I'm joining AA
Joining the AARP

I think that their magazine's a real good read
It comes every month at home
I hope their insurance plan will cover me
And they can extend a loan
I'm joining the AARP
'Cause you know, I've just turned 50, yeah
I'm joining AA
I'm joining AA
Joining the AARP

I'm developing a new taste for prunes
My face has brand new lines
I'll let pants out to make more room
A healthy colon's on my my my my my my my my my mind
Oh, come on

(Guitar solo!)

I'm joining the AARP
'Cause you know, I've just turned 50, yeah
I'm joining AA
I'm joining AA
Joining the AARP

Well their travel discounts, they knock me out
It's Elder Hostel time
And Palm Beach girls make me sing and shout
'Cause Florida is on my my my my my my my my my mind

Oh, show me all the snowbird yentas way down south
Tell me about aging's charm
Sure, I'm getting older, but don't count me out!
I am not at all alarmed...
I'm joining the AARP
'Cause you know, I've just turned 50, yeah
Joining the AARP
Oh, let me tell you honey

ooh-ooh-ooh
Oh my back!
ooh-ooh-ooh
Almost retired...
ooh-ooh-ooh
Parody by Mason "I may be shy, but I'm not retiring" Resnick

You're not getting older, you're getting better! Now you can get the birthday special AND the early-bird special at Denny's! And here's a coupon for an additional 5 percent discount! Just don't have a cake, 'cause the fire marshal might have something to say about that. Actually, you don't have to worry about that yet. But you will... when you're 64! Hoo!

Wow Mason! For some reason I always pictured you as about 16! Funny the impressions we get of people when we cannot see them.... :-O

Like Merry, I thought you were much younger as well, which I guess should be taken as compliment. Happy Birthday, Mason. "A healthy colon's on my ... mind" mind made me laugh.

Thanks Michael--I hope Amiright will be around when I'm 64. Heck, I hope I'm around...thanks alvin, Ann, AFW. Meriadoc, Red Ant--thanks, I'll take that as a complement. I'm only 16 emotionally...Rick C, thanks for the cake!
