The Lyrics

Willy joined the home and his fam’ly only visited occasionally
He plays bingo, most days, but today he’s gonna be missed
Betty used a cane, with a stack of prescriptions, at a spry ninety three
She was loosing her mind when she left the Senior Center behind

They were both in a rush as they hopped onto a bus; they would not be deterred
We got the rest of our lives, let’s live before we fall over dead
Because life isn’t cheap and time doesn’t creep when you’re older than dirt
And like a fizzled romance, this just maybe our last dance

Old Farts take wing and fly. Time is passing by
Just take this good advice and have yourself youthanized
Don't let anyone take your life from you.

Florida was close but they ventured to Malibu in California
They booked a four room bungalow that was party central, right on the beach
Adventure was enjoyed by courting the unexpected, yeah
Willy learned to surf, rode a long board like King Kahuna did , dude!

Old Farts hang ten tonight. Ride the raging tide,
Don’t let them take you down, don’t let ‘em make you to drown
Don't let anyone take your life from you.

[instrumental verse]

Old Farts eat beans and rice. Life is yours to spice.

Willy sent an email back home to Betty’s children asking , “you okay?”
He said, “we haven’t heard from you ever since we left that day
Well you didn’t come to visit and we were feeling listless so we just got away”
Betty just loves to flirt with the surfer boys, yeah!

Old Farts cut cheese tonight, wine will help it slide.
Old Farts eat out tonight, dine with candlelight
Old Fart make love tonight, find your wi-ld side

Old Farts making whoopee! weekly, daily
Find your wild, find your wi-ld side
Find, find, find, find your wi-ld side
Your wi-ld side
Your wi-ld side
Old Farts go seize the day
Today, today, today, today, yeah

I remember this tune when I was a teenager. The video for it is pretty cool too. Really cool parody this is. The OS is one of my favorite Rod tunes. Cheers!

Great story there, Lionel! Nice to hear how the old would act like young people for a change. I still feel like a kid myself, though I'm no longer in my teens and 20s. LOL @ Betty flirting with surfer boys as well. Here's 5 canes, 5 hearing aids, and 5 walkers for this one!
