Just an Old Wrinkly

Just an Old Wrinkly long past your best
farty old man in socks and old vest
As you get older that’s just how it goes
watching the tele while picking your nose

Then life’s for enjoying its is never too late
to do what you want past your sell by date

How about women see they get old too
what’s in their minds could turn the air blue
More than just smiles to sweet old granny
in baggy bloomers scratching her fanny

Then life’s for enjoying its is never too late
to do what you want past your sell by date

OK I’m joking we’re all airs and graces
putting youngsters back in their places
Time waits for no one you know it’s true
wont be so long they’ll be doing it too

Then life’s for enjoying its is never too late
to do what you want past your sell by date

If you listen to me long enough I can lower your IQ

I came into this world with nothing,
through careful management I've got most of it left.

I suppose sell by dates are a personal thing...However I was not referring to some sort of Black Slave trade...but rather the more modern version of "Work Slavery" so glibly used the sell by date as the time when one is not employable due to age or just not able any longer find paid employment.

The government is shifting retirement ages upwards so I expect they would like us all to work our way into a grave....

old and wrinkled
with a title like that I had to check it out -- very witty, humorous too. It's a witty little ditty, I'd say.

I'm old, getting older
but wrinkles aint set in,
I own so much girth
that I'm stretchin' my skin
