That Time In Life.

There comes a certain time in life
When nothing seems quite right
And everything you try to do
Involves some kind of fight

From paying bills to catching flu
And even weekly shopping
Where dodging trolleys left and right
Is guaranteed to keep you hopping

Now suddenly age matters
Though it didn't much before
Its all"Are you alright"
"Do you need a hand"
Or "Be careful you might fall"


And now it seems your in between
Not young but not quite old
You can still play footy in the park
But wrap up warm because its cold

And now the time just flys past
Another year will bite the dust
Then soon you'll have no teeth left
And have to suck your crusts

Well I'm not going to be like that
Though only time will tell
If the reaper comes to soon for me
He can go straight back to hell

Cause I'm not one for giving up
I'll drink and dance the night away
I'll treat life like one great romance
And thats how I shall stay.
