The Lyrics

Rationing is coming to Medicare, whether or not ObamaCare is repealed or replaced; so at my advanced age, I write this while I remain able. I would have repeated the four full stanzas as in TOS, but I couldn't remember them.
'Nother soul down to the coroner;
That's a closing-curtain sign
That bedding smells are shakin' up
That old gang of mine.

All the "boys" have got Alzheimers;
They forgot each "bad ol' time."
Nurse story-tellings wake 'em up,
Uphold hanging spine.

There goes Jack, there goes Jim
Down to bed in pain.
Come heaven, they're fleet again,
But they now seem more lame.

Gee, I get a lonesome feelin'
When I hear those church knells chime.
Close funerals are breakin' up
That old gang of mine.

I'm shedding cells while makin' up
This whole dangling line.
You'd better laugh at this while you can without coughing or wheezing. The Four Aces probably can't.

JAB - Great old song, fine new parody! The Four Aces actually do perform on PBS 50's reunion concerts and I believe still have most if not all of their original members. Lead singer Al Alberts still has a good voice, all Four Aces songs have to have that irritating "thump-da-thump-da-thump-da-thump" dotted figure underneath in the background? Again, good job! ;D

SORRY BJM! I addressed this wrong! I DO know the difference between the two of you...personally as well as politically. See you at the 2012 Victory Party, my friend! ;D

OMR: Thanks anyway, I'm not offended easily. I avoid PBS fundathons, so didn't know of The Four Aces' longevity. I'm glad to learn of it.
Replace "ALZheimer's" with "deMENtia" for proper accent.
