Song of the Day #3,260: ‘How Does it Feel to Be 50?’ – Clinton S. Clark

Today, we have a special shout-out to this blog’s number one fan, a man who has commented on all 3,259 songs to date. Happy 50th birthday to Dana!

How does it feel to be fifty,
Coming apart as it seems.
How does it feel to be fifty,
Laxatives in your dreams.
How does it feel,
How’s it feel to be fifty?

How does it feel to be fifty,
Drying all up like a prune.
How does it feel to be fifty,
Eating your mush with a spoon.
How does it feel,
How’s it feel to be fifty?

How does it feel to be fifty,
Little white streaks in your hair.
How does it feel to be fifty,
Always looking for the nearest chair.
How does it feel,
How’s it feel to be fifty?

How does it feel to be fifty,
Having your mind slip away.
How does it feel to be fifty,
Boy scouts looking your way.
How does it feel,
How’s it feel to be fifty?

How does it feel to be fifty,
Squinting at all that you read.
How does it feel to be fifty,
Driving at sub-standard speed.
How does it feel,
How’s it feel to be fifty?

But even now you’re fifty let it always be known,
that we love you!
Even though you’re getting old.
Man, are you getting old.
Old, olllld.
