I'm seventy-two to-day, boys,
They say I am growing old,
But I feel as brisk as in days of yore,
And my heart beats strong and bold;
No aches and pains my limbs assail,
Though I'm getting along, it is true;
And a jollier soul you will seldom find.
Although I am seventy-two.

For I laugh and I sing while I can, ha, ha,
And keep this end in view,
To please you all, both great and small,
Although I am seventy-two.

I often see young men go out
And spend their nights in glee,
With whisky, beer and wine get tight,
But none of that work for me;
There's fun to be had in a sober way,
And rational pleasures, too,
If you'll walk your horses while yet you are young,
You may trot them at seventy-two.-Chorus.

When young I used to love to walk
Down by some shady grove,
With some pretty girl with laughing eyes,
And tell her of my love;
I'd place my arm around her waist,
I'd hug and I'd kiss her, too,
And I'm sure I'd enjoy it all over again,
Although I am seventy-two.-Chorus.
