Lyrics - Pleasantly Pleased To Be Sixty

I am pleasantly pleased to be sixty
Astounded that I've lived so long
I had a great time till I reached fifty-nine
I thought that was it, but I'm wrong

It's not at all bad to be sixty
And frankly I'm doing OK

Apart from the sight in my mirror at night

There are no other signs of decay

Delighted to wake up each day

I accept all the gifts l I'm given
My heating, my bus pass and all

I really don't care, but if it is there

I'll take it no matter how small

I can be just as ill as I want to

And Google my symptoms with glee

I can do a sore back or a mild heart attack

Or die, if I want to, for free

It's my job to annoy younger people

Like, "How old do you think I am?"

They tell me I'm mad and I tell them they're bad

But frankly I don't give a damn

And I never drive above 30

No matter the limits or signs

It's amazing how slow my Toyota can go

With an angry Mercedes behind

Sometimes it's cruel to be kind

I am pleasantly pleased to be sixty
I'm far from the end of the line

There's so much to do and there's so much to do

And I'll do it, 'cause I have the time

It's not at all bad being sixty

But one thing is bothering me

My memory's gone and I can't finish songs.......
