When I was Young

When I was young
I had not a worry at all
When I was young
I could still play ball

Now I am old
As old as a rock
Now I am old
Like a smelly sock

My back always hurts
I get cramps all the time
My back always hurts
It is not very sublime 

When I was young
I had sharp teeth
When I was young 
I could eat a Heath

Now I am old
I’m sitting in a rocking chair
Now I am old
I can’t battle a polar bear

When I was young 
Everything was mine
When I was young
Oh—there’s nothing to rhyme. ❏
