Today is the day I turn fifty
And I am not going to get all depressed
There are plenty of things to look forward to
And these are the ones I like best!
You are handy to have in a pub quiz
You know all the old movies and songs
Your trivia knowledge is awesome
Because you’ve been around for so long!
You are allowed to be quite eccentric
Nobody minds if you’re odd
They just think you are a bit quirky
Or perhaps just a silly old sod!
You don’t have to always look glamorous
Because nobody looks anymore
You don’t have to spend hours getting ready
Before you can step out the door.
So although I’ve reach that half century
I’ve see no need to be sad
For I still feel life is for living
And there’s lots more fun to be had!
