It’s really an outrage that we’ve had to start a whole new year.
Why, I was just barely getting 2015 up and running in gear.
There were so many things I never got a chance to finish.
Things I wanted to do, things I wanted to accomplish.
There was painting the bedroom, fixing the roof and mowing he lawn.
Why, I could have worked every day of 2015 from dawn to dawn.
I don’t understand why we have to bring on a new year just now.
If that’s the case, I’m going to quit, y’know throw in the towel.
I’m getting too old to do things at the speed I once did.
Sure, there was a time when I did it all, but I was a kid.
I’m a lot slower now and if I’m going to be in the race
There’s no question about it, you gotta slow down the pace.
This business of having a new year one on top of the other
Makes me want to stay in bed; why get up, why even bother?
So for those of you who cheer on the new times you so revere,
I ask why be in such a hurry? For me, I wish you Happy Old Year!
