The Lyrics

I'm not looking forward to getting old. Still, many men and women are living their lives in their golden years and are doing very well. This parody is simply looking at an older man who complains about his old age. That's his shoes, and his life.
this ol' man is gettin shorter
and I've been startin to lose my sight
soft food is probably best
but nurse, I must confess
I can't take another slice of pumpkin pie

you say you call and I never answer
lady, losing my hearing is no news at all
I gotta take a pee
and the Golf game is on at three
just who's the heck is hollaring way down the hall?

and there's no salt on the table
and my 'taters are gettin' cold
I once was young and now I'm too damn old
all my cars are in the junk yards
and my house is long gone sold
i once was young and now I'm too damn old

my stomach's gettin' a hunger
for a steak I know I can't chew at all
playin' bingo makes me lose
bendin' over is bad news
and there's Gertrude in her nighty across the hall

and the farts keep gettin' longer
ping pong paddle's are hard to hold
I once was young and now I'm too damn old
weekly bus trips to the Kmart
and the summers are gettin' cold
I once was young and now I'm too damn old
I once was young and now I'm too damn old
There you have it
