The Lyrics

I feel a little cranky
I’m feeling aches and pains
Those kids with their cell phones
Ain’t got any brains

My skin’s a little wrinkly
My sight’s a little gone
I yell at the paperboy
“Get off my lawn!”

I’m living like I’m 70
Eating soft food like fresh cottage cheese
If I’m driving fifteen I’m just slowing down
And all of my old pals are underground

Memory’s out of service
I’m eating prunes and bran
I pop a pill for wood time
So bring on the Gran

My bones are a bit fragile
My hair looks like snow
Arthritis, and a bad spine
Like a turtle, I’m slow

I’m living like I’m 70
When I walk I huff and wheeze
All though the day I need to take a leak
And Medicare pays, because I’m an antique

I’m living like I’m 70
I’m living like I’m 70
I’m living like I’m 70
Soon dying cause I’m 70…

(Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah)
(Vietnam!)
(Blah! Blah! Blah!)
(Grandpa!)

Swell…
I feel a little hip strain
Since war I’m kinda crazed
I’m always stinking
From ointment I glazed
No longer am I young pup
No longer a premier
I feel like an old man…
I’ll be dead next year

I’m living like I’m 70
Knocked to ground every time that I sneeze
I’m living like I’m 70
I’m living like I’m 70

I’m living like I’m 70
Say things like “Skiddattle” and “Geeze”
With no hearing-aid I can’t heed a sound
I’m the oldest mutt in the whole dang pound

I’m living like I’m 70
I’m living like I’m 70
I’m living like I’m 70…
Soon dying cause I’m 70

I’m living like I’m 70
I’m old as the hill, sky, and trees
I walk with a cane, because I’m so weak
Hot nurse gets paid for helping me streak

I’m living like I’m 70
I’m living like I’m 70
I’m living like I’m 70…
Soon dying cause I’m 70

Great stuff, here..excellent descriptions..and/or prescriptions...humerous without being blatantly insulting to seniors..ladder high fives

wow! absolutely fantastic, matthias - I've got my own attempt at this OS coming up tomorrow, but now I've gotta go and polish it to try to match this standard - great idea, and great gags thruout - one of your best ever, imo - 555
Kristof Robertson - September 19, 2007 - Report this comment
I concur with Stu, Matty...this is easily one of your best; an absolute stunnah! It's a real shame most will overlook this because of the relative obscurity of the OS: however, you should be VERY proud of this. 555+++

Excellent stuff, Matthias, but I think we could all learn a lot from listening to 70-year olds.

This Aussie loved it too ! 3x5 :)

Great job, Matthias! Think you've really 'crankied' up the humor here!
Peregrin - September 21, 2007 - Report this comment
Aussies unite ! Skyhooks should never ever be overlooked ! Kristof's comments came to my mind as well... Agreed too, about the quality of your work. Great job :)

Great parody, but kinda scary that some young'un thinks 70 is really old... :-O

(Artistry) "Bring on the Gran" indeed. Pretty good work for a young whippersnapper.

(Artisttry) Maybe Skyhooks should sing this for their "reunion tour"! Very funny, perfectly matched rhymes made perfect sense all the way through.

(Artistry) Well done, young whippersnapper!

(Artistry) "So bring on the Gran" cracked me up again, Matty

(Artistry) Friggin' Awesome job Matthias "All though the day I need to take a leak And Medicare pays, because I’m an antique" was fun as heck. Rhyme scheme was followed very well, and you made no major grammar errors, one of your best!

That was AWESOME! Awesome rhymage too. 5s

This made me laugh my butt off, mainly because I live in Florida, where all the old folks from the rest of the country come to die. This could be the ANTHEM of this place...'The oldest mutt in the whole dang pound." Genius! 555

(ABC) Your Artistry as a Senior Parodist is showing.

This is indeed well done, Sir Matthias! I do infact drive (sometimes) not much over 15/mph!! It keeps my blood pressure lower.

Damn! I missed out on Skyhooks in Artistry... CURSES! I shouldn't have dissapeared... Anyway, I'm reading through them all now, and I'm guessing this one because this is just... AMAZING!... I mean... MINDBLOWINGLY AWESOME! 5's
Red Ant - February 03, 2008 - Report this comment
(ABC4-L) I avoided the Skyhooks round because I couldn't stand most of the OSs.l This was really awesome, Matt: I doubt Weird Al himself could have done better with this song. Great gags, humor and topic for this song. 555+.

(ABC) yep, loved this one, Matty, from the paperboy on the lawn to skedaddle - makes a good partner piece to Kristof's Mister Olden Swear
Invisible Boy - February 05, 2008 - Report this comment
(ABC) Very, very funny. It's always fun to bash the old folks...although I'm closer to being there than you are...

(ABC3L) See above....a tour de force of geriatric humour. Simply wonderful, Matty.

ABC- I have to say this was very clever and well done. Maybe I can relate because I'm turning 40 (shudder) this year and sometimes I feel like I'm 70. Very funny!
Cat - February 06, 2008 - Report this comment
(ABC) I thought this would be a tough topic to do with tact, but you nailed it! "Bring on the Gran" and "I'm the oldest mutt in the whole dang pound" both had me laughing.
