To: BOB'S FUN TIMES # 19
We are worth a fortune
Remember, old folks are worth a fortune,
with silver in their hair, gold in their teeth,
stones in their kidneys,
lead in their feet and gas in their stomachs.
I have become a little older since I saw you last,
and a few changes have come into my life since.
I am seeing five gentlemen every day. As soon as I wake up,
I go see John
Will Power helps me get out of bed.
then Charlie Horse comes along,
and Arthur Ritis shows up and stays the rest of the day.
He doesn't stay in one place very long;
he takes me from joint to joint.
After such a busy day, I'm really tired and glad to
go to bed with Ben Gay.
What a life! Oh, yes, I'm also flirting with Al Zymer.
P.S. The preacher came to call the other day.
He said that at my age I should be thinking about the hereafter.
I told him, "Oh, I do all the time. No matter where I am - in the parlor,
upstairs, in the kitchen or down in the basement -
I ask myself, 'Now, what am I here after?"
