"TOO OLD TO CUT THE MUSTARD"
by: ernest tubb
songwriter: Bill Carlisle

Too old too old
he's too old to cut the mustard anymore
He's getting too old he's done got too old
He's too old to cut the mustard anymore

When I was young I had a lotta pep
could get around I didn't need no help
But now you're old and a getting gray
The people all look at you and say

Repeat #1

I used to could jump just like a deer
But now you need a new landing gear
I used to could jump a picket fence
But now you're lucky if you jump an inch

Repeat #1

Well when I was young I had an automobile
Now they push you around in a chair with wheels
I had to fight the gals off with a stick
But now they say he makes me sick

Repeat #1

When I was young and in my prime
The gals all used to stand in line
But now they go the other way
And as they leave I hear them say

Repeat #1
