Hi guys

A buddy introduced me to this song last week & it is hilarious!!

All about us 'oldies' wanting to get away & play whilst our kids want us 'put away'!! ;)

Enjoy! Just for a laugh!

Home Home for the Aged.
(to the tune of: Home, Home on the Range)

Our [C]kids are all [C7]grown , Now [F]we live alone
The old [C]man the old [D7]dog and [G7]me, We take [C]naps every [C7]day
And we [F]like it that way, but our [C]kids think that [G7]we ought to [C]be
In a [G7]home, home for the [C]aged, our [D7]kids want to lock us a[G7]way
We’re too [C]old to stay [C7]home, In our [F]house on our own
Well that’s [C]what they [G7]tell us each [C]day.

We [C]won’t go [C7]away, To that [F]place were they play
[C]Bingo , [D7]bowls every [G7]day,
Where they [C]tell you to [C7]hush And they [F]feed you on mush,
And take [C]most of your [G7]pension a[C]way
In that [G7]home, home for the [C]aged,
Where our [D7]kids want to lock us a[G7]way
They [C]think that we’re [C7]strange, ‘cos we [F]don’t want to change
In our [C]own home it’s [G7]where we will [C]stay.

We [C]love our old [C7]home, We like [F]living alone
How I [C]wish that they’d [D7]just let us [G7]be,
We watch [C] “Home And A[C7]way”, before [F]bed everyday.
And [C]get up each [G7]night just to [C]pee
[G7] Our dog’s got the [C]mange,
He’s old and his [D7]muzzle is [G7]grey
Our [C]kids said the [C7]vet, Ought to [F]put down our pet
So we [C]packed up and [G7]we ran a[C]way.

Now [C]we’re on the [C7]run and we’re [F]out having fun,
Playing [C]up as us [D7]oldies can [G7]do
Yes, [C]me and my [C7]man, just [F]hitched up the van
And took the [C]old dog with [G7]us and shot [C]through.
From that [G7]home, home for the [C]aged,
They’re not [D7]going to lock us [G7]away
We’ll [C]live out our [C7]life, any[F]way that we like,
And we [C]play the uku[G7]lele all [C]day,

We’ll [C]live out our [C7]life, any[F]way that we like,
And we [C]play the uku[G7]lele all [C]day F C
