Lyrics

THE GOLDEN OLDIE
© Chapman Alden Grogan

Well the Doc says Grandpa's pulse is slow,
his cholesterol's too high
Drinking whiskey had to stop
and no more pecan pie
Morning coffee with no caffeine
is hard for him to take
and these days he's about as sweet
as a big old rattlesnake.

Grandpa's a GOLDEN OLDIE now
He could still use a little action
It don't take much to fill his cup
Just a little satisfaction
He wonders why his friends all disappeared
he wonders who's that old guy in the mirror
well he wonders -- He if he's a GOLDEN OLDIE now.
.
Well Grandpa's truck is out of bounds
since he ran it through the door
His saddle's hanging on the wall
'cause he can't ride no more
He says he'll soon be hunting quail
but his shotgun's lying idle
When he can't see to bait a hook
he's almost homicidal.

Grandpa's a GOLDEN OLDIE now
He could still use a little action
It don't take much to fill his cup
Just a little satisfaction
of those golden oldie misses
He wonders why his friends all disappeared
he wonders who's that old guy in the mirror
Well he wonders -- if he's a GOLDEN OLDIE now

Grandpa's still got what it takes
with that Rhett Butler style
he's the bingo champ of the modern world
and he can waltz a country mile

REPEAT CHORUS

Tag: Come on Grandpa, time to go home
