Gettin' Old Ain't for Sissies
Gettin' Old Ain't for Sissies
Jim Gach - Copyright 2006

Turned 50 just the other day
Arthritis in my vertebrae
Saw the doc for my physical
Expecting it to be typical

Said he'd need to check my prostate
Lubed a finger and began to violate
A part of me that never sees the sun
Getting? old ain?t gonna to be fun

Chorus: Oh my God I'm in my fifties
Getting old ain't for sissies
The years ahead are lookin' rough
Cause Medicare ain't gonna pay enough

Thank God my PSAs normal
But my wife is hormonal
The hair is thin on the top of my head
Cause it grows in my ears instead.

My hemorrhoids are flaring up
Colonoscopy and peeing in a cup
Endoscopy and hypertension
All of this while on a pension.


Get myself together & go to the store
Then I forget what I went there for.
The foods I like give me heartburn
And everything is gettin' harder to learn.

Teeth replaced out one by one
Guess that's better then eating with my gums
And I won't be in no more races
Cause both my knees need braces.

Chorus X2 Second time use verse chords
