OLD FOLKS ARE WORTH A FORTUNE

OLD FOLKS ARE WORTH A FORTUNE

Old folks are worth A fortune
With silver in their hair, gold in
Their teeth, stones in their kidneys,
Lead in their feet and gas in their stomachs

I have become more social the passing
Of the years. I’m seeing five gentlemen every day
As soon as I wake, will forever help me
Get out of bed, Then I go to the John.

Then Charley Horse come along and when he leave
Arthur Rites shows  up and stays the day,
 He doesn’t stay in one place he likes to take me.
From joint to joint, after A busy day I’m glad to go to bed
With Ben Gay

My Minister said I needed to think of the hereafter
I told him I do all the time if I’m in the basement-
 upstairs or in the kitchen- I ask myself “Now, What
am I here after
