I feel it in my joints
I tell you son it's about to start rainin'
I'm getting to the point
Can't do a damn thing without bein' in pain and

Half the people I ever knew
Are no longer here with me
Sure I'm telling this to you
But I sure ain't begging for your sympathy

Getting old sucks
But it beats the alternative
There's only one kind of luck
That's when you no longer get to live

Thanks for the advice
Might as well give me a shovel for the rain
Punch me in the face
Then turn around and give me a dollar for the pain

To say it's not worth the price
Is like gambling when you got nothing to gain and
I think you'll probably find
In the end you too, you're gonna end up saying

Getting old sucks
But it beats the alternative
There's only one kind of luck
That's when you no longer get to live

You might say I've traded it for the world!

Getting old sucks
But it beats the alternative
There's only one kind of luck
That's when you no longer get to live

Getting old sucks
But it beats the alternative
There's only one kind of luck
That's when you no longer get to live
