The Lyrics

Time takes its toll on a hero of yesteryear.
Who's the gray, wrinkled gnome
Who spends his days in a nursing home?


He's damned old!

Who is the man, who risks his hip
If he tries to stand?


Will he break it?

Who's the dude who can't go out
Without nurses all about?


Mind's gone!

(softly) They say this old Shaft has one foot...
What yo' say?
(louder) One foot in the grave!
We'd better dig it

He's a vegetative man
No one understands him 'cause he mumbles

Gone! Shaft!
