The Lyrics

it's so nice to be an old man and pass the time of day
and talk about our pensions that Chrysler takes away.
just the thought, it makes me shiver will I still live the same
and by the way is the pension the same?

is my pension the same now? I'm asking
and if they change the rules will you say we all were fools it's true
will I live outside be dire, will my life still be the same
and by the way is the pension the same

will my landlord be a loser will my stuff be in the hall
and will my life be rotten as we're caught in the fall
theye will be no living laughter on out faces just the same
oh did I ask? will my pension be the same?

will my pension be the same I'm just asking
contract tlks run dry and my wife she starts to cry now every day
can I fix the roof that's leaking or grab a tarp again
and by the way is my pension the same??

it's so nice to be an old man and pass the time of day
and talk about our pensions that Chrysler takes away.
just the thought, it makes me shiver will I still live the same
and by the way is the pension the same?

Yikes, Malcolm, it's bad enough you have to take potshots at America's working people -- current, would-be, and retired -- but did you have to drag my man Gordon into this? (I'm laughing... a little.)

actually, I know his son and daughter from his first marriage. Her son and mine are chums, and played hockey together. Grandad lives in Orillia, Ontario, a beautiful little town, and came down for a few games a few years ago.. Nice man, very quiet and unassuming for the legend he is.....
