    THAT CAN’T BE ME

 

Who’s that lady mirrored there

          It surely can’t be me

That’s an old and wrinkled face

          And I feel twenty-three

 

Look at all that graying hair

          Could that possibly be

It should be a golden brown

          I’m sure it isn’t me

 

Is that a hair on her chin

          It is, with certainty

Now she dons bifocals

          I know that isn’t me

 

Then in walks my loving mate

          And he says chidingly

“How ya doin’, Old Gal?”

          DARN! I must admit it’s me
