The Lyrics

My son makes me feel old. He's joining the Air Force.
I'm so old
I can't believe I feel this bad
Growin' mold
The hills are calling me "Dad"

I can't stand up
My back is so sore
I can't stand up
My posture is poor
I can't stand up
I think that I'm falling apart

I'm in pain
I feel like I'm at Death's door
Need a crane
Just to rise from the floor

I can't stand up
I'm feelin' so weak
I can't stand up
I hear my bones creak
I can't stand up
The arrow heads down on my chart

It's time
Time to call the whole thing quits
It's the spine
Think mine is now falling to bits

I can't stand up
I fall on my ass
I can't stand up
I'm suff'rin' from gas
I can't stand up
I think that I need to go fart

As I vote fives, I empathize.

yeah Rick, that last line came out of left field!! I sympathise with your situation - I sense a "Cats-In-The-Cradle" in the air

At least the ageless Eric Clapton doesn't have the same ailments. (My sympathy goes out to him for losing Conor. ;( )

But Rick, you're not REALLY old until the subject of bowel movements, or lack thereof, begins to totally dominate all your conversations. But, that's OK, I can see you are well on your way now, and that's what counts...5-5-5 from someone who now scores "54" in the age category...

DKTOS, but 5's was funny. Here, have my "Rocker"....the one I say I'm not off of. :D

I was about to say "I know what you mean, Rick"... until I read Paul's comment. Now I realize that I'm not as old as I thought I was ;-)
