Lyrics

A Few New Tricks To Learn

He's up with the sun, not one for wastin' time
He's seventy-one, with mountains still to climb
So he slips his tie through the collar of his only white
Grabs the classified, he circled late last night
Gives his cat a scratch, says "girl you'll see
There's a job out there for me
Life is more than watching the seasons turn
And this old dog has A Few New Tricks To Learn"

He paces the hall of the Roebuck Company
Application form filled out carefully
For nearly a year he's tried and tried again
And found that the jobs go to younger men
He hears his name called, stands up tall
Straightens his ties, walks down the hall
And once again, that old desire burns
'Cause this old dog has a Few New Tricks To Learn

He's lookin' forward to tomorrow
And what might come his way
Sometimes it scares him when it hits him
That there are so damn many more yesterdays

In the morning mail is a ticket for the bus
With a note from his son sayin, "please come live with us"
And there in the stack is a card from personnel
Sayin' "give us a call when you've learned computers well"
Out to pasture or back to school?
He thinks about what he should do
Then calls his son, says "thanks for your concern
But this old dog has A Few New Tricks To Learn"
