Grannies Aren’t Gonna Slow Down

Tune: The Deadwood Stage (from Calamity Jane)

 

It’s been 20 years and the Grannies aren’t gonna slow down

We’ve sung and we’ve raged and folks still wanna keep us around

A toast to ourselves – it’s a wonderful day

Years fly away, years fly away, years fly away

 

We’ve been asked to leave, and we’ve asked to undress

We keep our cool, so we don’t get involved in a mess

The rainbows still come – and our members don’t pay

Years fly away, years fly away, years fly away

 

 

To the seasoned we say we really owe you a lot

To the new ones who join, we’re grateful to give you a spot

Thanks to you all – it’s time now to play

Years fly away, years fly away, years fly away

 

With the help of good drugs, we’re all gonna live a bit more

If it’s time to party, we’ll be lined up at the door

Here’s to you Grannies for our 20 year stay

Years fly away, years fly away, years fly away
