"Appreciate your youth. It's a pain when you get old and your body and mind start to go. If you don't believe me, just ask me.
I suppose it could be worse. In the old days people only got the bad part, looking at things going downhill, but there was no retirement to look forward to."
I grow old and I’m always in pain,
And at times think I’m going insane.
Should I let out a cheer
‘Cause retirement is near,
Or despair for the years that remain?
