The Lyrics

Here is an update to this song for those of us past the point of being wild but still have some fun years left. For non-golfers, a “birdie” mean a score of one under par and a “bogey” is a score of one stroke over par.
Get your golf cart runnin'
Head out on the fairway
Lookin' for some birdies
And keep the bogeys at bay

Finally can make it happen
Leave work world showing no tear trace
Trash all of your files at once
And throw out that brief case

Not too old for surfin'
Swimin' in the ocean
Sailin' in the wind
And the feelin' of sun lotion

Sell your home to make it happen
Take Medicare with full embrace
Acquire your pension at once
And downsize living space

Like a true grownup child
We were born, born to retire
We can feel so high
If our funds don’t run dry

Born to retire
Born to retire
