Since I still appreciate you Let's find love while we may Because I know I'll hate you When you are old and grey

So say you love me here and now I'll make the most of that Say you love and trust me For I know you'll disgust me When you're old and getting fat!

An awful debility A lessened utility A loss of mobility Is a strong possibility In all probability I'll lose my virility And you your fertility And desirability And this liability Of total sterility Will leed to hostility And a sense of.. futility So let's act with agility While we still have facility For we'll soon reach senility And lose the ability

Your teeth will start to go dear Your waist will start to spread In twenty years or so dear I'll wish that you were dead

I'll never love you then at all The way I do today So please remember When I leave in December I told you so in May
