WHEN I’M OLD AND GRAY

When I’m old and gray and gone away
Will you walk my dog; will you stray my cat?
Will you dust my clothes and crease my hat?
Will you do all this when I’m old and gray?

When I’m old and gray and gone away
Will you tell my story; will you wave Old Glory?
Will you sail my dory; will you ease my worry?
Will you do all this when I’m old and gray?

When I’m old and gray and gone away
Will you sing my song; will you right my wrong?
Will make life long; will you make the weak strong?
Will you do all this when I’m old and gray?

When I’m old and gray and gone away
Will you read my writes; will you win my fights?
Will you keep my sun bright; will you weep tonight?
Will you do all this when I’m gone away?
