Song Description

This song postulates that one cannot stop aging wrinkles from appearing on your face, so why try? Who wants to turn back into a pimply faced teenager, anyway. The best cure is enjoying your grandchildren and being content with the stage of life God has placed you in.

Story Behind the Song

While we were on vacation last summer, I happened to pick up a women's magazine and marveled at all the full page ads flaunting the merits of wrinkle creams. This song is my protest against the creams and cosmetic companies trying to lure women into spending big bucks to change the inevitable. It is my wish to encourage my fellow old-and-getting-older ladies to be content with our lot, get down and enjoy those grandbabies. They are the best cure for wrinkles!

Another winner Kate!! Really cute! Your lyrics are always extremely fun and clever.....always give me a laugh! I really love the arrangement in this....sounds like a live violon? Excellent sounding!!

    - Greg Johnson

Musicianship here is classic! You don't hear music like this very often anymore unless in a musical on stage or movie. Very entertaining. Vocal execution has some moments where notes get a pinch or hair off, but overall harmonies and execution is great! Has a very raw human quality you don't hear often anymore with technology corrections. This feels like "REAL" music that doesn't get appreciated anymore like it deserves! Thank you for sharing!

Lyrics

CHORUS: There's nothin' I can do about the wrinkles
They're with me till the day I die.
There's nothin' I can do about the wrinkles
It won't do any good to try, so
Next time I look into the mirror,
I'll chuckle at the face I see.
There's nothin' I can do about the wrinkles
They're God's latest fashion for me!

Should I be tempted to buy a cream
That would recreate the face of my dreams?
Turn back the clock, reverse the gears,
Return me to my teenage years?
Elasticize my sagging chin
Restore my alluring dimples....
If it really worked; if it did the trick,
It might bring back my pimples! SING CHORUS

Should I be tempted to stop and look
At the cosmetic counter's makeover nook?
That cute little gal in the size 2 jeans
Hasn't got a clue what aging means!
She'd plaster me with mud that cracks,
Rub in essential oils.
If it really works, if it does the trick,
Would it make me a brand new girl?

BRIDGE: Avon's calling, Mary Kay
Please don't visit me today.
Now I've learned there's not a race
To see who has the youngest face
Cover Girl and Estee Lauder
I'm content, so please don't bother. INSTRUMENTAL

Should I shell out fifty bucks an ounce
When the formula's free that'll give me a bounce?
Like tossin' a ball to my grandbaby boy?
The giggles and the wiggles that generate joy?
Re-emphasize those smile lines
Crows feet are showy wrinkles!
For with every glance, they only enhance
Sparklin' eyes that twinkle! SING CHORUS
