When You Are Old Not Much Maters At All

When You Are Old Not Much Maters At All 

When you are old not much maters at all 
unless you are the kind that still has some enthusiasm, 
and make sure you never use sarcasm.
If you have grandchildren, that's the best 
no time for you to get any rest.
When you see them you will gleam with joy 
another day to sit and enjoy,
all this has already been foretold.
If you are lucky enough to have a family that still loves you,
you just hit the jackpot;
it will make you feel like you are never stuck.
Like I said, it's just pure luck,
you see not all families are alike some just ignore their loved ones
especially the elderly It really is a pity. they can be so smiity
Sometimes you can be taken out to dinner and for some reason it's more important than ever.
You can reminisce or just simply live in bliss and think of a time you were full of vinegar and spice to be able to still think is kind of nice
other cannot dementia or Alzheimer's that  set in but not you, your  still here  and i know it for few more years
When you were more clever, thoughts like this stay with you forever
Thinking of all that you have accomplished and maybe there is time for a little more. 
Since you will eventually be gone, since you let yourself get old,
but it's ok, you are leaving behind a legacy this they can never take away from you,
and you know what you have earned it you can now be a bit lazy.
No one will judge you or think you are crazy remembering when you use to run around in pigtails?
don't forget those days, so carefree just you and your girlfriends 
what a wonderfull life this has been.

I really like your sentiments in this one, Marc. A topic dear to my heart. The older we get, the more we recall the good old days. wow, Rondstadt looks so young in that video!!
