WHEN I'M AN OLD LADY...

When I'm an old lady, I'll live with my kids,
and make them so happy, just as they did.
I want to pay back all the joy they've provided
returning each deed, oh, they'll be so excited

When I'm an old lady and live with my kids,
I'll write on the wall with reds, whites, and blues,
and bounce on the furniture, wearing my shoes.
I'll drink from the carton and then leave it out,
I'll stuff all the toilets, and oh, how they'll shout.

When I'm an old lady and live with my kids.
When they're on the phone and just out of reach,
I'll get into things like sugar and bleach,
Oh, they'll snap their fingers and then shake their heads,
and when that is done, I'll hide under the beds.

When I'm an old lady and live with my kids.
When they cook dinner and call me to meals,
I'll not eat my green beans or salads congealed.
I'll gag on my okra, spill milk on the table,
and when they get angry, run fast as I'm able.

When I'm an old lady and live with my kids.
I'll sit close to the TV, thru the channels I'll click
I'll cross both of my eyes to see if they stick.
I'll take off my socks and throw one away,
and play in the mud till the end of the day.

When I'm an old lady and live with my kids.
And later in bed, I'll lay back and sigh,
and thank God in prayer and then close my eyes,
and my kids will look down with a smile slowly creeping
and say with a groan. "She's so sweet when she's sleeping!
When I'm an old lady and live with my kids.
