I once was young but didn't care
And now I'm old and know it.
I'm slow of step and gray of hair
But Dang! I'm smart and show it.
I may smell rancid,may fall down
May even spit and cough,
I'll share the wisdom I have found
Or you can just bug off.
I wasn't born with all my smarts
It took me years to lern 'em
So if the young'uns refuse to listen
Well, I just say, Dern 'em
My niece, Johnette Loefgren and I wrote this
I'm the OLD, she's the SMART. LOL
