The Lyrics

I get up
Ever'thing get me down
Maybe I'm old
The oldest swinger in town
An' I don't care
About how you feel
Talk about my-y-y operation
An' the corns on my heel

You hear me complaining on and on about the youth of today
And if I got my way
They'd all be put away

'Cause I'm a grump (grump!)
'Cause I'm a grump
Yes I'm a grump (grump!)
Senile ol' grump

Old Man! Hey, you!
Who said that?
Where's my hearin' aid?
You say you don't know,
And something like "my ears have decayed"

Just because I cannot hear
When my back is turned you're taking the mickey
And my ticker is dicky
And I don't mean to be picky...

But I'm an old grump. (Grump!)
Complainin' ol' grump
Yes I'm a grump (Grump!)
A decrepit ol' grump
Grump!

(Guitar Solo)

Yep, I'm an old grump. (Grump!)
Ancient ol' grump
So, I'm a grump (Grump!)
Doddery ol' grump
Grump!
Grump!
Grump!
Grump!

Damn, you four are fast... JD, your vote was in so quick it beat Chucky's parody author page update, so that's already showing one vote. And yeah, I can imagine an aging DLR (thinks, that's Dave Lee Roth, not the Docklands Light Railway) singing this.

Personally, when I get older, I plan to be Happy, not Grumpy. And if Doc is generous, maybe a little Dopey, too. ;-D
