Treasure Island

Love for Senior Citizens


I'll be pushing up the daisies
Before you realise
I loved you so much, so much more
Than all the other guys.

I guess I'm getting rather old
But I'm still in love with you,
I may be last year's model
But my passion is brand new!

Why don't you give yourself a break
And give me half a chance,
I've had enough of heart-ache
And I'm looking for romance.

The sun shines in November
Although the summer's done,
I want you to remember
There's still some time for fun.

We could be very happy,
Believe me, this is true,
Let's take a chance and try it,
You for me and me for you.

   Who in the dark and silent grave,
