Oldies Revisited

It was fun being a baby boomer until now. Some of the artists of the 60's and 70's are revising their hits with new lyrics to accommodate aging Baby Boomers. They include:

Stevie Wonder - I Just Called to Say "I've Fallen and I can't Get up!"

The Who - Magic Senior Citizens Bus

Bob Dylan - Like a Kidney Stone

Herman's Hermits - Mrs. Brown, You've Got a Lovely Walker.

Ringo Starr - I Get By With a Little Help From Depends.

The Bee Gees - How Can You Mend a Broken Hip.

Bobby Darin - Splish, Splash, I Was Havin' a Flash.

Roberta Flack - The First Time Ever I Forgot Your Face.

Johnny Nash - I Can't See Clearly Now.

Paul Simon - Fifty Ways to Lose Your Liver.

The Commodores - Once, Twice, Three Times to the Bathroom.

Procol Harem - A Whiter Shade of Hair.

Leo Sayer - You Make Me Feel Like Napping.

The Temptations - Papa's Got a Kidney Stone.

Abba - Denture Queen.

Tony Orlando - Knock 3 Times On The Ceiling If You Hear Me Fall.

Helen Reddy - I Am Woman, Hear Me Snore.

Leslie Gore - It's My Procedure, and I'll Cry If I Want To.

David Bowie - Older Americans


And my favorite:

Willie Nelson - On the Commode Again

Wow! I thought the Johnny Nash song was changed to "I Can Pee Clearly Now"

The Beatles song has been changed to "When I'm 640" and due to inflation, it's now "Nickel Lane"

And instead of "Candida", Tony Orlando sings "Can't Hear Ya"

The Moody Blues sing :"I Gotta Go....NOW!"

The Foundations sing "Pick Me Up, Buttercup"

Electric Light Orchestra- "Turn To Kidney Stone"

Blues Image sings "Pay My AARP Dues"

Clint Holmes now sings "My name is....My name is....what the heck is my name?"
