When I was 5 I couldnšt wait,
To be a bigger kid, so I could be 8.
When I was 12, I thought I wasnšt alive,
until I was 16 and could learn how to drive.
When I was 18, I wanted to drink and have fun,
so I couldnšt wait to be 21.
When I was in my 20šs, I wanted to wed,
so I could raise a family before I was dead.
When I was in my 30šs, I couldnšt wait,
till my kids would grow up and go out on dates.
I lived through my 40šs, then I hit 55.
Išm very thankful that Išm still alive.
If I make it to 60, Išll probably say,
I wonder if Išll hit 70 someday?
If I get into my 80šs, I might have a hunch,
whether or not Išll make it to lunch.
If I make it to 90, Išll probably say,
I wonder if I should buy green bananas today?
If I make it to 100, with all my aches and pains.
Išll probably want to go back to being 5 again.
