THERE IS NOTHING THE MATTER WITH ME,  IM AS HEALTHY AS I CAN BE,  I HAVE ARTHRITIS IN MY KNEES,  AND WHEN I TALK I TALK WITH A WHEEZE.

MY PULSE IS WEAK,  AND MY BLOOD IS THIN,  BUT IM AWFULLY WELL FOR THE SHAPE IM IN.

ARCH SUPPORTS I HAVE FOR MY FEET,  OR I WOULDNT BE ABLE TO WALK IN THE STREET.  

SLEEP IS DENIED ME NIGHT AFTER NIGHT,  BUT EVERY MORNING I FIND IM ALRIGHT.

MY MEMORY IS FAILING,  MY HEADS IN A SPIN,  BUT IM AWFULLY WELL FOR THE SHAPE IM IN.

THE MORAL IS THIS AS MY TALE I UNFOLD,  THAT FOR YOU AND ME WHO ARE GETTING OLD,   ITS BETTER TO SAY IM FINE WITH A GRIN, THAN TO LET FOLKS KNOW THE SHAPE WE ARE IN.

HOW DO I KNOW THAT MY YOUTH WAS WELL SPENT? WELL, MY GET UP AND GO HAS GOT UP AND WENT.

BUT I REALLY DONT MIND WHEN I THINK WITH A GRIN, OF ALL THE GRAND PLACES MY GOT UP HAS BIN

OLD AGE IS GOLDEN IVE HEARD IT SAID,  BUT SOMETIMES I WONDER AS I GET INTO BED,  WITH MY EARS IN A DRAW,  MY TEETH IN A CUP,  MY SPECS ON A TABLE UNTIL I GET UP.

ERE SLEEP OVERTAKES ME I SAY TO MYSELF,  IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE I COULD LAY ON THE SHELF.

WHEN I WAS YOUNG MY SLIPPERS WERE RED,  I COULD KICK MY HEELS RIGHT OVER MY HEAD.

WHEN I WAS OLDER MY SLIPPERS WERE BLUE,  BUT I STILL COULD DANCE THE WHOLE NIGHT THROUGH.

NOW I AM OLDER MY SLIPPERS ARE BLACK,  I WALK TO THE SHOPS AND PUFF MY WAY BACK.

I GET UP EACH MORNING AND DUST OFF MY WITS,  AND PICK UP THE PAPERS TO READ THE OBITS.

IF MY NAME IS STILL MISSING I KNOW IM NOT DEAD,  AND SO HAVE MY BREAKFAST AND GO BACK TO BED.
