.5. It was Time

It was time to make a change
Old fashions had to stop
My girlfriend took me into town
To a trendy clothing shop

Bell bottomed flairs just had to go
She picked a pair skin tight
The brightest shade of orange
They didn’t look quite right

So I settled for some demin jeans
With a chequered shirt in blue
My hushpuppies got thrown away
Replaced by trainers new

My jacket with its elbows patched
Soon joined my old suede shoes
I dread to think what’s coming next
Whatever would she choose?

She found a bomber jacket
Said it was all the rage
But should a man of eighty four
Not dress more for his age

    This is hilarious David, I can't stop laughing, I thought you were writing about a fifty year old but when I saw he was 84 I just fell apart,
    Thanks for the laughter, keep 'em coming
