'I'm Fine Thank You' Tea Towel

I'm Fine Thank You - A Tea Towel which can be used, or pinned on the wall.

There is nothing the matter with me,

I'm as healthy as can be.

I have arthritis in both my knees

And when I talk, I talk with a wheeze.

Sleep is denied me night after night,

But every morning I find I'm alright.

My memory is failing, my head's in a spin,

But I'm awfully well for the shape I'm in.

How do you know my youth is all spent?

Well, my "get up and go" has got up and went.

But I really don't mind when I think with a grin,

Of all the grand places my "get up" has bin.

"Old age is golden" I've heard it said,

But sometimes I wonder as I get into bed,

With my ears in the drawer, my teeth in a cup,

My eyes on the table until I wake up.

'Ere sleep overtakes me, I say to myself,

"Is there anything else I could lay on the shelf?"

When I was young my slippers were red,

I could kick my heels over my head.

When I was older my slippers were blue,

But I could still dance the whole night through.

Now I am old my slippers are black,

I walk to the store and puff my way back.

I get up each morning and dust off my wits,

And pick up the paper and read the "Obits"

If my name is still missing I know I'm not dead, 

So I have a good breakfast

- and face what's ahead!"
