"OLD"

I walk a little slower
my head's a little lower
my back ain't what it used to be

That's because I'm getting old
at least, that's what I've been told
it doesn't seem that long ago to me

I can't see like I should
and my hearing ain't so good
at least my teeth are mostly all still mine

That's because I'm getting old
at least, that's what I've been told
but that's ok, I can handle it just fine

There's gray upon my head
and I ain't no good in bed
it's hard to get down on my knees to pray

That's because I'm getting old
at least, that's what I've been told
time just goes by faster every day
