Off our rockers, actin' crazy 
With the right medication we won't be lazy 
Doin' the old folks boogie 
Down on the farm 
Wheelchairs, they was locked arm in arm 
Paired off pacemakers with matchin' alarms 
Gives us jus' 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 
Doin' 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, 
Facillities there, they're all out on loan 
The bank forclose, 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
