Lyn Poulton


Aged Care Rap


We're all getting older
and it's rather hard to know,
Should I remain in my home,
If not, where do I go?
Times are getting tougher,
Expenses are quite high,
I've paid all my taxes,
The pension makes me cry.
We're all getting older,
no kids on our hands,
Time to see the outside world,
See old country bands.
As we all reminisce,
Of times that have passed,
We've helped to change the future,
Let's toast and raise a glass.
We're all getting older,
Let's celebrate our lives,
We live for the future,
Taking control, we will survive.
