When aging athletes gather
Their old friends for to greet,
The conversation turns to
Their memories, so sweet -

Of younger days, when they were strong,
When they were fast and fleet;
When they’d outrun (what joy! what fun!)
The cars along the street.

Alas, age brings its aches and pains.
Their doctors now must treat
The pain of the patella
And the agony of de feet.
