TOO OLD TO CUT THE MUSTARD (Bill Carlisle) The Carlisles - 1951 Ernest Tubb & Red Foley - 1952 Rosemary Clooney & Marlene Dietrich - 1952 Buck Owens & Buddy Alan - 1972 When I was young, I had an automobile I'd scoot myself right under that wheel I had to fight the gals off with a stick But now they say, "Oh, he makes me sick" He's too old, too old He's too old to cut the mustard anymore He's a-gettin' too old, he's done got too old He's too old to cut the mustard anymore When I was young I had a lot of pep I could get around, I didn't need no help But since I'm old and a-gettin' gray The people all look at me and say He's too old, too old He's too old to cut the mustard anymore He's a-gettin' too old, he's done got too old He's too old to cut the mustard anymore ***** Lyrics as recorded by Rosemary Clooney & Marlene Dietrich: BOTH: Too old, too old He's too old to cut the mustard anymore He's a-gettin' too old, too old He's too old to cut the mustard anymore DIETRICH: Once I kissed a millionaire Ran my fingers through his hair The whole thing turned out pretty grim 'Cause none of his hair belonged to him BOTH: Too old, too old He's too old to cut the mustard anymore He's a-gettin' too old, too old He's too old to cut the mustard anymore CLOONEY: A gent I know with a big sedan Swore he was an army man Then he got dressed up, fit to kill In the uniform he wore at the Bunker Hill BOTH: Too old, too old He's too old to cut the mustard anymore He's a-gettin' too old, too old He's too old to cut the mustard anymore DIETRICH: I entertained an actor I know The moon was high and the lights were low He said I'd like to play the scene But it's time to drink my Ovaltine BOTH: Too old, too old He's too old to cut the mustard anymore He's a-gettin' too old, too old He's too old to cut the mustard anymore CLOONEY: It seems that every man you meet Wants to sweep you off his feet DIETRICH: Gals, before you do submit Make him show his birth certificate BOTH: Too old, too old He's too old to cut the mustard anymore He's a-gettin' too old, too old He's too old to cut the mustard anymore
