The Lyrics

Around the year I proposed marriage, TOS was popular. She is 3 years and 129 days my junior, and that seemed right then; girls mature sooner than boys. But women tend to live (and stay active) longer than men; so reflecting on many years together, I need to revise those lyrics.
I'm my wife's companion 'cause she'll never grow old.
I love her so much, but she just won't grow old.
To grandboys [1] she's giving, and she's never a scold.
She's hot to stay young till the day she grows cold.

People who are "only" can be told to say "I do";
I'm glad it happened to me when and where it happened to you. [2]

I'm my wife's companion and it's sure taken hold.
Our life will unfold as our hair will show gold. [3]
Love and youth and happiness were ours through days untold.
Been my wife's companion and I've never grown mold.

I know someone who's lonely can feel old at sixty-three.
No one wants to see - old at sixty-three;
Your disposition sours like a re-run on TV.
Won't let it happen to her; she won't let it happen to me.

She's my life's companion and I'll never grow old
If she'll keep me in touch with what's clever and bold.
Love and truth and happiness are ours if I won't fold.
As my wife's companion,
I'll fly life's wide canyon,
And we'll never, never grow old!
[1] I intend no gender bias, but we have no granddaughters yet; you can sing "grandkids".
[2] "Her" is meant but doesn't rhyme. I invoke my poetic license.
[3] "Silver" is a better description for my hair but doesn't rhyme. Ibidem.

Quite a romantic and touching tribute to your other half, Barry....good original song to personalize it to, also..sort of like renewing your vows in a parody...

Listened to the OS the first time and loved it, although this song was released before my time. Well, this song will never get old and neither will your wife...or your parody...our yourself! My mom's 2 and a half years older than my dad, who'll be 60 in November. And they're alive and kicking and young for their ages. I agree with AFW that it's a romantic and touching tribute to your other half and also about renewing vows. Hope you'll have 555 more golden years together. LOL!!

Barry - I suspected you had a very warm and sentimental side. I would guess that BOTH of you are VERY lucky. ;D

Thanks to all c/v's. Of course, I got my spouse's OK before releasing this. ;=) I think she liked it.
CMM: Looks like your parents got the age difference right for their golden years; I wish them the best.
OMR: Sing this to OLR, to make up for your "F*** My Old Lady Tonight" parody. ;=)
