Some times it seems
that you cant win
because every thing you do
is unhealthy or a sin.

Tobacco is bad
likewise whisky or gin
and Women and Gambling
will bring you to a bad end.

But if You always do
just as your told,
what will you talk about
when you get old?

Now some people tell me
that I'm an old Fool
and that I should always
just follow the rules,

And not do this
and dont do that
eat all my vegetables
and take off my hat.

But what kind of World
would we live in
if we never had fun
and did not sin?

God would be mad
He'd have nothing to do
if it was'nt for sinners
like me and you!

And if the truth must be known
and I might be so bold
I ask what would you talk about
when You grow old?
