Need a Laugh?

I have a little “age-appropriate” humor for you today. Now that all the creative baby-boomers have more time on their hands, they are creating all sorts of laugh-out-loud jokes. As we age, we are all amazed at the changes in our bodies. We’ve found one of the best ways to deal with it is to laugh about it.

My lovely sister-in-law sent me the lyrics below. They are from songs popular in the “olden days.” They’ve been adjusted for our aging – ummmm – our aging ears, bodies, brains, culture, or maybe all of that. Anyway, I hope one or two of these will give you a chuckle.

  • From Bobby Darin: Splish, Splash, I Was Havin’ a Flash
  • Herman’s Hermits: Mrs. Brown, You’ve Got a Lovely Walker
  • Ringo Starr: I Get By With a Little Help From Depends
  • The Bee Gees: How Can You Mend a Broken Hip?
  • Roberta Flack: The First Time Ever I Forgot Your Face
  • Johnny Nash: I Can’t See Clearly Now
  • Paul Simon: Fifty Ways To Lose Your Liver
  • The Commodores: Once, Twice, Three Times to the Bathroom
  • Procol Harem: A Whiter Shade of Hair
  • Leo Sayer: You Make Me Feel Like Napping
  • The Temptations: Papa’s Got a Kidney Stone
  • Abba: Denture Queen
  • Tony Orlando: Knock 3 Times On the Ceiling If You Hear Me Falling
  • Helen Reddy: I Am Woman; Hear Me Snore
  • Leslie Gore: It’s My Procedure, I’ll Cry If I Want To
  • Willie Nelson: On the Commode Again
