Your eyes have faded from blue to gray,

And your smile is outlined by creases,

But the love in your heart never goes away,

diminishes, or ceases.

.

Your hair is ever graying,

And I've become much balder,

But as long as we are still laying

Together we won't falter.

.

Time is no longer on our side,

So we should run away, my dear,

Before I get anymore wide

And you can no longer hear.

.

The cemetery calls my name.

I know he calls you too, my love.

We won't get our time for fame

If we end up above.

.

Take my hand and hold me close

Before arthritis hits you,

And eskimo-kiss my nose

Before our bodies turn blue.
