An old man's job

An old man’s job

Give me a break;

Cut me some slack.

I’m too ancient for the fast track.

Give me an old man’s job.

No stacking shelves

Or humping coal:

A comfy chair is my main goal.

Give me an old man’s job.

Forget late shifts

Or early starts;

I am inclined to walk-on parts.

Give me an old man’s job.

Driving a bus

Is not for me;

I need too many breaks for…. tea.

Give me an old man’s job.

Delivering post?

This is a joke;

I’d be knackered and stony broke.

Give me an old man’s job.

A proper role

Behind a desk:

Absorbing, yet not Kafkaesque.

Give me an old man’s job.

I can’t patrol

The windy street;

I shall stick to my balance sheet.

Give me an old man’s job.

Nothing on wheels

Or out at sea:

You know full well it’s not for me.

I just want to make a few bob,

So please, give me an old man’s job!
