AGING


HOW WONDERFUL IT IS
TO HAVE YOUTH AND VIGOR
GOOD HEALTH AND VITALITY
COMES WITH YOUTH, YOU MIGHT FIGURE



A LOT OF YOUTHS AND AGING ONES,
HAVE A FEARFUL POINT OF VIEW
IN TERMS OF AGING
AND BEING SICK TOO



BUT NOW A DAYS, YOU CAN'T LOOK
AT AGING THAT WAY
FOR A LOT OF YOUTHS ARE DYING
EACH AND EVERYDAY



IF NOT BY THE USE OF DRUGS OR VIOLENT ACTS
A LOT OF YOUTHS ARE DYING
BECAUSE OF POOR HEALTH IN FACT



BECAUSE OF THEIR LIFE STYLE
AND NOT KNOWING WHAT TO DO
THEY'RE SUFFERING WITH HEART CONDITIONS
AND OTHER DISEASES TOO



NOW WHEN WE LOOK AT THOSE AGING TODAY
THEY'RE REAPING LONGER LIVES,
FOR THE COURSE THEY'VE PAVED



NEVER LOOK AT AGING WITH NEGATIVITY
YOU'VE BEEN BLESSED WITH LONGER AND HEALTHIER LIVES
THAN OUR YOUTH, YOU SEE



I RECOGNIZE THERE ARE THOSE  
DYING WITH HEALTH PROBLEMS TOO
A LOT OF YOU CAN AVOID THAT ROUTE,
IT'S TRULY UP TO YOU



SOME WITH AGE HAVE MORE VIGOR AND EVEN FINESSE
MOST UP IN AGE ARE FUNCTIONING
EVEN MORE AT THEIR BEST



THOSE UP IN AGE, KNOW THE RIGHT THINGS TO DO
AND MOST MAKE A PRACTICE OF
BEING MINDFUL OF THEIR HEALTH TOO



REMEMBER, THOSE UP IN AGE ARE MADE OF THE BETTER QUALITY
I REGRET MY GENERATION MAY NEVER COME TO BE
LIKE THOSE WITH AGE AND THE PRETTIEST GRAY HAIR
YOU CAN TELL BY THEIR APPEARANCE THEY CERTAINLY DO CARE



ABOUT THEMSELVES AND WHO THEY ARE
YOU'LL FIND THEY'RE OUT LIVING THE YOUTH BY FAR
I'VE SEEN IN YOUR GENERATION, BEAUTY BEYOND COMPARE
YOUR SKIN IS SO SILKY AND SMOOTH
AND YOU MOVE WITH MUCH FLARE



THESE ARE THE ONES WITH WISDOM IN VIEW
I CAN TELL THEY KNOW JUST WHAT TO DO
THAT'S WHY YOUR DAYS ARE SEVENTY-FIVE AND MORE
REALLY IN REALITY, YOU'RE JUST BEGINNING TO MATURE



MATURE TO THE POINT YOU RECOGNIZE,
YOU HAVE LOTS TO DO
NOT SITTING IN ROCKING CHAIRS
OR USING WALKING CANES TOO



YOU'RE REALIZING YOUR ACTIVITIES
MIGHT AS WELL BE, VIGOROUS, ZEALOUS,
WITH REGULARITY



THAT'S WHY I LOOK UP TO THE THINGS THAT YOU ALL DO
I HOPE AND PRAY, I CAN GROW
TO BE LIKE MOST OF YOU



SO APPRECIATE THE FACT
THAT YOU'VE LIVED THUS FAR
FOR I'M PROUD TO SEE
AND KNOW WHO SOME ARE



IT'S BECAUSE OF THOSE UP IN AGE
AS TO WHY THINGS HAVE AND GOTTEN DONE
IF IT WERE LEFT UP TO THE YOUTH,
A LOT OF ENDEAVORS MIGHT NOT HAVE BEGUN



IT'S BECAUSE OF YOU ALL THAT FOUNDATIONS BEEN LAID
AND YOU DON'T PROCRASTINATE
AND YOU'RE STILL LIVING TODAY



I TELL YOU WITH AGE, THERE'S MANY REASONS TO LOOK UP TO YOU
YOU'RE SOLID, STABLE AND STEADFAST IN ALL YOU DO
YOU'RE PROVING EACH DAY OF HOW PLEASANT LIFE CAN BE
WITH HAPPINESS, GOOD HEALTH, ACCOMPLISHMENTS AND REAL VITALITY
