Old Danny

What hair he has left on his bald head is silver gray
Old Danny has surely known a better day
But he does feel happy just to be alive
And he does look fit and healthy for one of eight five
He never did father children or never had a wife
Though many women have come and have gone from his life
He does  look as sprightly as a twenty five years younger than he is man
As opposed to one at the twilight of his life span
He does seem as happy as a carefree boy
And every day of his life he does enjoy
The theory old men go to bed early he has proven wrong
On Saturday night in the pub he joins in the sing along
And out-drink young men who are in their lives prime
Until the barman calls for last drinks at closing time.
