The Over 50’s Alphabet
A friend of mine recently reached a significant birthday and this song was composed by a fabulously creative couple in her honour.
It made me laugh so much that I asked for permission to share it here with you!
A’s for Arthritis
B’s the bad back
C’s the chest pains, perhaps cardiac?
D is for dental decay and decline
E is for eyesight, can’t read that top line!
F is for farting and fluid retention
G is for gut droop which I’d rather not mention.
H high blood pressure – I’d rather it low
I for incisions with scars you can’t show
J is for joint, out of socket, won’t mend
K is for knees that crack when they bend
L’s for libido, what happened to sex?
M is for memory, I forget what comes next
N is for neuralgia, in nerves way down low
O is for osteo, bones that don’t grow!
P for prescriptions, I have quite a few, just give me a pill and I’ll be good as new!
Q is for queasy, is it fatal or flu?
R is for reflux, one meal turns to two
S is for sleepless nights, counting my fears
T is for tinnitus, bells in my ears!
U is for urinary, troubles with flow
V for vertigo, that’s dizzy you know
W for worry, now what’s going round?
X is for X-ray and what might be found
Y for another year I’m here behind
Z is for zest I still have – in my mind!
