Any other songs about old people who refused to be told they're crazy, put down or trivialized?
Tune: Polly Vaughn or Jack Haggerty or any good tune
A week ago Monday I drove to Fort Bragg
With my African basket and recycled bag.
Fresh out of chocolate, I had to get more
“Good morning, young lady,” said the man in the store.
Should I excuse him because of his youth?
No, I think it’s better that he learn the truth.
“I’ll not be cajoled by your flattering tongue,
I am not a lady and I am not young.
“One month ago I turned seventy-two
I’ll bet I’m thirty years older than you.
I’m losing my teeth and I’m losing my hair
Now I’ve lost my bifocals, I don’t know where.
“I live surrounded by things I can’t find
But that doesn’t mean that I’m losing my mind.
I know where it is: it’s right here in my head
And I plan to keep using it till I am dead.
“Now I’ve got my chocolate, I’ll be on my way
I’ve enjoyed talking with you here today.
Have I made myself clear? I don’t need to say more?”
“Sure thing, young lady,” said the man in the store.
