The Nitty Gritty
 
I will spell it out for you in black and white
with no hint of frills intended in my plight!
When you get too old, can't see things right
you must give up driving, especially at night!
If your mind ever begins to spit and sputter
clear out those cobwebs and all that clutter!
If Alz Heimers comes knocking at your door
say 'go away, don't come back anymore'!
Should your boobs ever fall down to the floor
roll 'em up and tuck 'em in your bra once more!
If your teeth fall out and you can't eat steak
opt for dentures, they'll not crack or break!
But, if they should, there's always Super Glue
saves a trip to the dentist, that's what I do!
If your hearing is going, you can't hear a thing
just smile and nod your head to everything!
You know they say getting older is for the birds
just as running for president is too, I've heard!
