Track Name: Old Folk Get Angry Too (single version)
Old Folk Get Angry Too
(Dave Milligan)

I was talking to an old bloke on the bus the other day
He was telling me a sorry tale of one that got away
Fought the Nazis in the war and decorated by the king
Had his cash nicked in the street and no one did a bloody thing

He said a yawny little scrawny little saucepan lid
Had ambled up behind him and demanded a few quid
Announcing his arrival with a Vincent Van Gogh
He asked the ‘Arry Lime and then he ripped him off

The kids today can be disgustin’
The things they do’ll do yer crust in

Old folk get angry too
Especially when they’ve had a few
they tend to be afraid of you
they're nervous of the things you do

old folk get angry too
intimidated by the new
frustrated by things they can't do
that come so easily to you


He had a posh old lady friend from up in Chorleywood
She’d asked him to move in with her, he said he surely would
Now their hair’s as dry as straw and their lips as dry as wine
He says “Come along with me luv, hurry up there’s not much time”

Tall as a tree, their roots still growing
Still hard as wood, but old leaves showing

old folk get randy too
especially when they've had a few
intoxicated by the view
get up to things you never knew

old folk get randy too
especially when they've had a few
the young don't like to think they do
they may be at it more than you
