Queuing with the old folk 
There's and old man with a wicked smile 
Not through smug politeness 
He's doing it in style 

No savings book or flannel slacks 
No "Pardon" when I heard them ask 
Just a vodaphone and a filofax 

When I'm 64 
I'll dream on 

They all bore the milkman 
Stop him for hours at their front gate 
He just sits and thinks 
I'll make the bastard wait 

No dribbling or incontinence 
No longing for the old sixpence 
Just smoking weed till age makes sense 

When I'm 74 
I'll dream on 

They all save for Blackpool 
Just for the cheap companionship 
Meanwhile he counts pennies 
For a different trip 

No smoking pipes and drinking bitter 
No eyeing up the baby sitter 
I'll trip up kids and I'll drop my litter 

When I'm 84 
I'll dream on 
When I'm 84 
I'll dream on late 
I'll dream on 
And I'll whisper late 

You're in your nineties Arthur 
Be careful with your back 
Exercise your muscles 
I'd rather Jack 
I'd rather Jack
