"Here's a catchy little song, that will make your big toes tap,
with tongue in cheek, it's called the "Old age rap."
....This world is for the young, it just doesn't seem fair,
that when we all get old, nobody really does care,
because with my crinkly old face, and my hair fallin' out,
"How's it goin' slaphead?" the cruel kids shout!
He must be at least 100, that's the vicious rumour,
but I can take a joke...must be my unique Scouse humour.
I look like Father Christmas, with my expanding tum,
if you see me from the rear, I've got a massive bum!
With my eyesight fading, and my my hearing going too,
I'm up, and down all night...visiting the bloody loo!
I take my teeth out when I go to bed at night,
I look into the mirror....Oh, what a scary sight!
I can't stay warm, I'm always feeling cold,
If I say so myself, there's no fun in growing old.
But there's nothing that I can do, about the "Generation Gap,"
I just dance around my Zimmer....and sing the OLD AGE RAP!".....šŸŽ¶Hahaha.....Happy New Year!...
