Grow up!
Who says I have to grow up?
Life is so much more fun at my age.
You never see me excited, mad or enraged.
Life is too short to scream, kick and pull your hair.
Think young, act young and most of all be aware.
Children act and play and they never have a care. 
Laughing, dancing and singing in the rain'
keeps me  young and sane.

Like children, we should stay.
And that’s what I’m doing, my lady!
Staying young at …eighty!
