    Backstory:
    Based on all the experiences I've had as a "new" senior citizen.                                                                                                                    

    Lyrics:
                                                      
    An Older But Wiser Kind of Guy (VERSE) Used to do it all night, Now it takes all night to do. Never ate before sundown, Now I'm chowing down at 2. I avoid the prime rib, It's just too hard to chew. I'm an older but wiser kind of guy. I have wrinkles everywhere, Some places wrinkles shouldn't be. AARP's been after me, Since I was 43. It takes about an hour, Every time I pee. I'm an older but wiser kind of guy. (CHORUS) I get discounts everywhere I go, Where were they when I was makin' real dough? There's a special bus for every grandpa and gram, I'd take it but sometimes I forget where I am. (VERSE) Bought myself an I-Phone, Can't work the thing at all. Doesn't really matter, I never get a call. My belly's getting bigger, But my bladder got so small. I'm an older but wiser kind of guy. I have a special doctor, He's a geriatric wiz. I will go to see him, When I remember where he is. My memory's not that bad, But I hope there's not a quiz. I'm an older but wiser kind of guy. (BRIDGE) Can't afford to go too far from away, Stay home when I take vacations. It's hard to find music I like, It's even too old for the oldies stations. (VERSE) There are dating services, For those who did survive. I'd like to try them, But I think my wife is still alive. If it's further than 2 blocks, You know I'm gonna drive, I'm an older but wiser kind of guy. Sex used to be a special thing, We had it all the time. Now it's every other birthday, Anymore would be a crime, She liked to be on top, Now she just can't make the climb. I'm an older but wiser kind of guy. (CHORUS) I'm still above ground, pretty sure I'm alive, And damn happy about it, It's a big deal, I want to tell the whole world, But I don't have the breath to shout it. (VERSE) Some say that I'm an old fart, My time is fading fast. Everything is failing. And I'm running out of gas. But I'm strong enough to tell 'em, To shove it up their ass. I'm an older but wiser, Just an older but wiser, An older but wiser kind of guy.
