Senior Citizens Lament

Everything is farther then it used to be.

It is twice as far to the corner and I notice a hill has been added

I gave up running for the bus, it leaves sooner than it used to.

They are making stairs steeper then they used to and I notice  smaller print in the newspapers.

There is no use asking people to read to you, everyone speaks in such low voice I can hardly hear them.

The material in dresses is so skimpy, especially around the waist and hips.

People are changing – they look much younger then they used to when I was their age.

I ran into an old school mate the other day, she had aged so much she didn’t recognize me.

I got to thinking about the poor thing 

and while I was combing my hair I glanced at my reflection in the mirror 

 they sure don’t make mirrors like they used to either.

You know I have four men in my life now,

                                                                                          1 – I go around with Charley Horse

                                                                                          2 – I eat with Will Power

                                                                                          3 – I spend the day with Arthur Ritis

                                                                                           4 – And I go to bed with  Ben Gay
