lyrics

When your hair’s turned the colour of grey – that’s getting old
When your dinner’s on your lap with a tray – you’re getting old
Getting old, getting old,
When your addled mind to mouth have delay, you’re getting old

If every bump in the path’s like a hill, you’re getting old
On the stairs those muscles all kill, they’re getting old
Getting old, getting old,
When the buzzer says it’s time for your pill, that’s getting old

Every birthday, goes flashing by,
And the years go past in the blink of an eye,
When it takes 3 jumpers, 4 coats so you don’t feel cold
That’s another sign, you’ll have to resign to getting old

When everyone in their teen’s a delinquent, getting old
And the pub don’t ask your age with the payment, you’re getting old
Getting old, getting old
You might decide to give your hair that strange blue tint – you’re getting old

When you can finally afford that fast car, you’re getting old
But you only drive it around ten miles an hour as you’re getting old
Getting old, Getting old
And the distance to the loo can’t be far, when you’re getting old

Every birthday, goes flashing by,
And the years go past in the blink of an eye,
Stiff body parts, but the one that you want (or so I’ve been told)
Remember music on tape, there’s just no escape, you’re getting old

Hope you’ve found somebody to love when you’re getting old,
Or it’s 12 cats and the good Lord above as you’re getting old,
Getting old, Getting old
Your leather trousers just won’t fit like a glove now you’re getting old.

Every birthday, goes flashing by,
And the years go past in the blink of an eye,
Time to embrace and let some of those wrinkles unfold,
Time waits for no-one, so let’s just have fun as we’re getting old
It’s happening to you, it’s happening to me, we’re getting old,
It’s happening to you, it’s happening to me, we’re getting old
