How Old?

Time--it moves like a scalded cat, And I--I creep like a snail. Like a long tailed cat in a lawn mower's path, I am nearing the end of my tale. Now, it's said that you're only as old as you feel, And aging, they say, doesn't hurt, But, try to believe you're as young as you feel, When you feel like you're older than dirt.
