GET UP AND GO (Seeger) (Pete Seeger) Pete Seeger How do I know my youth has been spent: Because my get-up-and-go, got up and went But in spite of all that, I'm able to grin When I think where my get-up-and-go has been Old age is golden, I've heard it said, But sometimes I wonder as I go to bed My ears are in a drawer, my teeth in a cup, My eyes on a table until I wake up When I was young my slippers were red I could kick my heels right over my head When I grew older my slippers were blue But I could still dance the whole night thru Now that I am old my slippers are black I walk to the corner and puff my way back The reason I know my youth is spent My get-up-and-go got up and went I get up each morning dust off my wits Pick up the paper and read the "orbits" If my name is missing, I know I'm not dead So I eat a good breakfast and go back to bed (Contributed by =Ae= - February 2009)
