lyrics

Gettin' old & gettin' tired leaves a lot to be desired
things I used to do I can't do now
the girls I used to squeeze have all got artificial knees
and chance'd be a fine thing anyhow

I used to like to dance but it's become a game of chance
a gamble with the laws of gravity
gettin' down is really hip, but it's become a one way trip
Gettin' Old & Gettin'Tired is killing me

Gettin' Old & Gettin'Tired leaves me very uninspired
my mind is like the land that time forgot
I retain with clarity events of 1953
but can't be sure I’m wearing underwear or not

the Autumn leaves are falling, I hear Waikanae a-calling
they'll be bringing out my pills at half past three
I get peculiar aches and pains and my foot hurts when it rains
getting old & getting tired is killing me

Gettin' Old & Gettin' tired leaves a lot to be desired
things I used to do I can't do now
The tank is down to half but I suppose you gotta laugh
cos chance'd be a fine thing anyhow

I never like to moan, at least my teeth are all my own,
I put them in a glass to keep them clean
Gettin' old & gettin' tired leaves a lot to be desired
gettin' old & gettin' tired is killing me
Gettin' Old & Gettin'Tired is killing me
