Kicking Up Geraniums

Believe it or not I was a shy young man Led a very uninteresting life Then met a crazy lady named Cathie “Laugh every day”, her advice Life's short, you'll wonder where it went Don't know how much is remaining “So party it up, make the most of it,” she said “You'll soon be kicking up geraniums” So I took her advice maybe a little to literal Not a serious bone in my body So don't ya blame me, blame it on Cathie A slave to this sweet younger hottie It's That's her private and personal address Some might like her to explain how she did it Haven't a clue I must really confess Once was a shy and retiring young man She changed my whole life around I'm now the dude I always wanted to be Where joy and silliness abound © Jack Ellison 2013
