In fact I would want slightly begin outdated women all the time do
Who cares if I end after I’m eighty two
Additionally Lord there’s this longing deep in me
To bungee bounce from a bridge after I’m eighty three
After this Lord, there may be this little chore
I would like to color my roof once more after I’m eighty 4
And on my birthday whereas I am nonetheless alive
I wish to do the limbo after I’m eighty 5
After this Lord after I’m eighty six
I wish to prepare earnestly so I can do the splits
And if at eighty seven, earlier than the 12 months could go
I wish to do aerobics in a teenage class
One other factor Lord, earlier than it is too late
I would love to do some grasp gliding after I’m eighty eight
Do you have to Lord nonetheless spare me, and if I am feeling wonderful
I wish to be part of the paratroopers after I’m eighty 9
And if Lord I make it, expensive Lord I pray
I would like to bop the evening away after I’m ninety and a day
