Lucky If I Get Old

Posted by CFMBabs , 17 October 2006 · 769 views

A pain shot in my mouth, "ouch" I've broken a tooth
I was sucking on a popsicle when crack it went, "Strewth"
I spat it out to my daughter's horror. My husband gave a cry
That's coz you've got wooden teeth and I gave out a sigh
It isn't enough to have sclero, but I'm falling apart as well
Soon I'll be wailing " Unclean" as I wave my warning bell
My hair is going thinner, my teeth are falling out
My skin is getting tighter, my lips I cannot pout
The greyness is taking over, I'm begining to look like mum
And I can't chew on anything, I suck it with my gum.

They don't have a cure for sclero and they don't have one for age
I guess it's just another chapter and I'm turning another page
I think I'm half way through the book, the rest is there to read
Another 20 pages and false teeth and specs, I'll need
For my eyesight is also failing, is there no end to my spare parts
And I'm joining the old generation before it even starts
The bathroom is full of hair dye, the comb is full of hair
I used to have thick brown locks and now it isn't there
I hope I don't go bald as well, now that would be unfair
No hair, no teeth and blind as a bat, would be too much to bear

My bones are creaking like an old wooden door
My neck is stiff and I can't look around no more
My sex life is a memory, I'd rather have a sweet
For me to get excited would be a proper feat
Gone are the days of passion along with all the zest
I take so long to get in bed, I get out again for a rest
My hubby gets all heated his anticipation begins to surge
But with all my layers of clothing he finally loses the urge

I dread the day but I'm sure it will come
When not only my fingers will be numb
I'll have my teeth in a cup of solution
And my eyesight will only have one conclusion
I'll look like my granny, be permanently cold
But I'll think myself lucky if I get that old
