When I see an older person

When I see an older person
Remember Iím 82
HAVIN FUN
While Iím ďstrollinĒ down the avenue

When I see an older person
My age and above
I always smile and greet them
And show a little bit of love.

When I see an older person
As I walk down the street
I always get a smile back
I have yet to meet

Any older person that
Wonít answer back to me
I think itís fun
Doncha see.

When I see an older person
I was taught to respect
To call them Mr. or Mrs.
It was JUST Correct.

Now that I am that Older Person
I would like that same age old tradition
But to the younger generation, if you forget
Iíll pardon your ommision.
