Have you ever gone swimming
played fast and loose with the women
drank poison and asked for a refill?
it only lasted forever until
forever came over the hill
and we found out
that we were over the hill
If age is just a number
I am number fifteen
got my ticket at the pension office
thirteen minute wait to be seen
by some youngster who doesn’t know me
who will tell me what I’m due
and when I’m told I’ll really feel old
but what else does a pensioner do?
