Old Folks Boogie — Little Feat

Old Folks Boogie — Little Feat

Off our rockers
Acting crazy
With the right medication
We won’t be lazy

Doing the old folks boogie
Down on the farm
With wheelchairs
They was locked arm in arm
Paired off pacemakers
With matching alarms
Gives us just one more chance
To spin one more yarn

And you know
That you’re over the hill
When your mind makes a promise
That your body can’t fill
Doing the old folks boogie
And boogie we will
‘Cause to us the thought’s
As good as a thrill

Back at the home
No time is your own
Facilities there
They’re all out on loan
The bank foreclosed
And your bankruptcy shows
And your credit creeps
To an all-time low
So you know
That you’re over the hill
When your mind makes a promise
That your body can’t fill

Try and get a rise
From an atrophied muscle
And the nerves in your thigh
Just quivers and fizzles
So you know
That you’re over the hill
When your mind makes a promise
That your body can’t fill
