'Something old, something new'


‘SOMEONE OLD-SOMETHING NEW’

I sat in the cool night air on my balcony
When the sound of voices came a fluttering up to me
I wish one had said, I did that when I was younger
Do it now, you can afford to, you won’t die of hunger

However, alas, I am too old to do it now
What? Too old, at fifty, you are only just alive
If I had the chance to do it, I would, but
I am too old, at three score years and five

I’ll tell you what, let’s do it together
Let’s dance a swift fandango
Forget our ages we’ll go ahead
Then we will dance the tango

They found they could do something new
The tango led to other dances
Just shows you what you can do
If only you take the chances
