MY GET UP

 
            MY GET UP DOESN’T WORK VERY WELL
            IT HURTS NO MATTER HOW HARD I TRY
            MY BACK SCREAMS AND MY LEGS ACHE
            ALL I WANT TO DO IS SOB AND CRY

            GETTING UP OFF THE FLOOR IS SO HARD
            IT MAKES ME NEVER WANT TO GET DOWN
            MY KNEES WILL POP, I NEED SOME HELP
            AND ON MY FACE YOU WILL SEE A FROWN

            IT’S SAD WHEN YOUR MIND TELLS YOU
            THAT YOU CAN DO THINGS AS ONCE BEFORE
            BUT WHEN YOU TRY AND HURT YOURSELF
            YOU REALIZE YOU CAN’T DO IT ANYMORE

            YOU MAY HAVE THE MIND OF A CHILD
            THINK YOU CAN STILL RUN, JUMP AND PLAY
            AND WHEN YOU TRY TO OBEY YOUR MIND
            YOUR BODY SHOUTS, “THERE AIN’T NO WAY!”

            THEY SAY GETTING OLD IS NOT FOR SISSIES
            AND I MOST DEFINITELY HAVE TO AGREE
            AS I DEJECTEDLY RELAX IN MY RECLINER
            AND RUB PAIN KILLER ALL OVER MY KNEES!
