The Lyrics

This isn't an attack on old people, it's about what I would enjoy most about being old
I feel like playing bingo
And watching daytime shows
I'm loving getting old
And show my peeling toes

I smell like rotten wind
My aching back, it groans
Some people really hate it
Come on and hear them moan

You know i'm cenile
I'm deaf as well
My mind's gave up
With that cough mint smell
I carry hankies
Fisherman's friends
'Cause now I'm old
I'm not with trends

I see a youth before me
I hit him with my bag
I hate all under 16s
They all smoke dope and fags

He gave the finger to me
So I phoned up the police
He got an 8 month ASBO
Now I can live in peace

You know I hate mess
And paying bills
I tidy up
Just before my pills
I hold up queues
And I need a hand
My pension's worth
A hundred grand

I watch my western films
I go to bed at 9
I wake up really early
I look like frankenstien

Wear coats in summertime

Go to the front of lines

Because i'm 69

And all I do is whine

My nails are filled with grime

I like reporting crimes

My false teeth really shine
Constructive criticism only, please

Wecome back, DAK! I almost gave this a 4, but then I compared it to the OS and lines that seemed a bit odd to me ("And show my peeling toes") were revealed as twists on the original lyrics. I don't know if they sell Depends (adult diapers, basically) in Great Britain, but in my mind the line "I wear Depends" plays off the original better that "I'm not with trends". And some readers may be confused about the "dope and fags" line, since in the USA the word "fag" is cruel slang for "homosexual".

DKTOS ( yes, yes, yes AGAIN ) so no vote. Besides, If you really mean what you state here, a 5 for funny would be laughing AT you, not WITH you, as many of those things I find would suck at old age. PS- I know you're British, and fag I believe is cigarette there, so I'm not offended.

Interesting take on growing old, most people never wish to explore the subject, but would rather find new ways to regain their youth. I do think it is creative, well written, and overall a fine effort. I have no idea about the pacing, and I really didn't think it was terribly funny. So, I will give fives trusting in the fact that you write well enough that the pacing was on target. BTW I am glad to see you back as well. ^-^

Rex - Thanx Red Ant - The things i write about are things that irritate me about old people, so when i'm old, i would love to do things like that to younger people - just to irritate them! Kim - Thank you for your vote and your kind comments Rick - Thanx again!

WOW! 555. I think that was a lot funnier than most of the other recent parodies. The line ''I see a youth before me, i hit him with my bag" was hilarious. Would you really do that to people for no reason when you become old? If so, remind me to stay far away from you, i don't appreciate people wacking me.

Thank you Alyssa yet AGAIN! With comments like that i don't think you should be worried - i only hit nasty people! lol. I needed something with 'oomph' (metaphorically speaking) to parody, so I raked out my mam's collection of Cds from the paper, found this and thought 'perfect'! thank you to all who've left comments. Coming up... what does Avril Lavigne get up to when she's drunk?..
