When you’re in your latter workin’ years,

Joe Kreger .jpg

and your go-power won’t quite go,

there’s still a way to hang in there.

The secret’s workin’ slow.

If you’ve got to make a livin’,

and still avoid untimely death,

well, friend make sure your efforts

don’t outrun your breath.

If you’re not the man you used to be,

there’s no reason to complain.

Just readjust your velocity

to a pace you can maintain.

Myself, I do about as much

as I did when young and strong,

but there seems to be a down side,

’cause my days get awful long.
