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!

    Very witty, Marc, you made me laugh, and it’s only 7am on the second day of the new year, oops sorry I mentioned it.
    Try to have a happy one, anyway.
