Old and daft

by cricketjeff on May 16, 2008.  © Jeff Green, All rights reserved

I’m fond of my opinion and
    the sound of my own voice
I hope that you will understand
    you always have a choice
That just because I’m old and daft
    it doesn’t mean I’m wrong
Could be your head is understaffed
    or your own views too strong
The other option I suppose
    is I have lost the plot
Many people would propose
    I’m talking Tommy rot
It doesn’t matter either way
    I’m happy as the fool
Life is a game I choose to play
    by following this rule
I’ll always let my fellows know
    the way things seem to be
Then they can choose to stay or go
    and hear or not hear me
