It was fun being a baby boomer... until now. Some of the artists of the 60's are revising their hits with new lyrics to accommodate aging baby boomers. They include: 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. Marvin Gaye--- Heard It Through the Grape Nuts. 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. And my favorite: Willie Nelson--- On the Commode Again

Oh tickle, you really love to give me a good ticklish. I kept re-reading all those you wrote down and I honestly don't know anyone of them. Sure, I love the song from Abba and The Bee Gees, but the rest are not familiar to me. I'm not a 60's baby anyway. Thanks for the good laugh...

This was sent to me by a wonderful lady who has a special place in my heart. She is one of the best and always manages to make me smile. She has a wacky sense of humour as well.

Grandma just copy and paste it to another document or email - that's what I did and sent it to my small group, of which the majority are baby boomers :)

Oh, my, did they come to my house for inspiration? I always vowed not to become my mom and constantly talk about my bowel movements, the frequency, difficulty, or lack of, but it seems like as you age you lose track of everything else.Have a great night, listening to the golden moldies. LoL

Give me a break. I am a baby boomer. Right at the end but still baby boomer. So glad to see what I have to look forward to lyrically. :)
