What do you call an old man on the street
What do you say to him when he shuffles his feet
Are you thinkin that he's not as good as you
Or are you thinking that he knows a thing or two
You know you're gonna be just like him someday
Everybody gets old so just watch what you say

Some day we all turn old and grey
No matter how we try to push it away
We all forget about the things that we've done
And we all forget to send a card to someone
Our time is just a few thousand days
So remember that all we end up the same way

They that youth is wasted on the young
I think they're right and I wanna have some fun
If you see this old man dancin in the street,
Join in with me and let's all move our feet
I don't dance like I did when I was twenty nine
But in my mind my dancin's mighty fine

Well I feel like I'm gettin in the way
Sometimes I wish I was young and not so grey
If you're thinking it won't happen to you
Remember this and know that it's true
I used to be a younger cool cat
And I still think I know where it's at

When I come to the end of my days
I hope that you're around to see me away
You'll be older then... And a little grey
You'll think about the past and then you'll say
That old guy had pretty darned good life
Farewell my friend you know it's been a slice.
So think about the old folks on the street
Say hi to every one that you meet
Give them a wave and a big old helping hand
You know they made things better in this land.
There's value in every person at every age
And every one deserves some writin on a page.

What do you call an old man on the street
What do you say to him when he shuffles his feet
Are you thinkin that he's not as good as you
Or are you thinking that he knows a thing or two
You know you're gonna be just like him someday
Everybody gets old so just watch what you say
