You're Never Too Old To Learn
Elderly Comments

You've heard of that familiar old saying
You're never too old to learn
This one little lady took that adage to heart
And her name would be Grace Laverne

From the moment she could walk and talk
She'd wanted to be a prima ballerina
But she lived on a farm out in the country
Where she showed cattle in a huge arena

Not one to give up quickly
Gracie never let her dream of dance die
She'd tippy toe through the green pastures
Once she even stepped in a nasty cow pie


She grew up and raised her family
But she always told them of her dreams
And for them that helped to explain some
About all her goofy plans and schemes

Well everyone loved Grace Laverne so much
They began a savings at the local bank
Feeling everybody should have a chance in life
Finally they presented to her a check blank

She could write her own ticket to New York
And study under the best they had to offer there
When she was done with all her lessons
The excitement of her recital was in the air

Everyone from her small town was invited
They had front row seats to watch dear Grace
They said a silent prayer for their friend
Hoping she wouldn't cause herself any disgrace

Well let me tell ya, about that spunky little gal
She twirled out onto the center of the stage
Not only did she dance but she was the prima ballerina
People were in awe of how well she did for her age
