I can't wait till I get old

I can't wait till I get old. 


I can't wait till I get old apart from the long dark winter cold; 
I can't wait till I get old apart from my eyes for failing to tell me what they told. 

I can't wait till I get old apart from growing hairs from out of my big fat nose; 
I can't wait till I get old apart from waking up every morning with aching brittle bones. 

I can't wait till I get old apart from everyone you know has died and you feel alone; 
I can't wait till I get old apart from wanting to be young and the sun feels like your own. 

I can't wait till I get old apart from telling the same stories from years and years ago; 
I can't wait till I get old apart from being mugged down the road for a ten pound note. 

I can't wait till I get old apart from lying in a hospital bed being prodded and poked and probed; 
I can't wait till I get old apart from when the reaper comes to toll and the curl of my old fat toes.
