TOO OLD TO CUT THE MUSTARD
(Bill Carlisle)

[D] When I was young, I had an [A7] automobile
I'd scoot myself right [D] under that wheel
I had to fight the gals off [A7] with a stick
But now they say, [P] ...""Oh, he makes me sick."" (Refrain)

He's [D] Too old, [G] too old
He's too [D] old to cut the mustard any-[A7] more [P] ...
He's a-gettin' [D] too old, he's done got [G] too old
He's [D] too old to cut the mus-[A7] tard any-[D] more.

When I was young I had a lot of pep
I could get around, I didn't need no help
But since I'm old and a-gettin' gray
The people all look at me and say. (Refrain)

Note: Bill Carlisle wrote it and recorded it. Biggest record, though, was by
Rosemary Clooney and Marlene Dietrich, with harpsichord back-up
By Stan Freeman. Honest. RG
