MOSE ALLISON lyrics - Certified Senior Citizen

MOSE ALLISON
"Certified Senior Citizen"
(Mose Allison)

I'm a certified senior citizen
And I don't have to pay full fare
You might ignore me but doctors adore me
Got my Medicaid got my Medicare

I'm a certified senior citizen
'Scuse me while I take my nap
You don't like my drivin', I don't like your jivin'
Just don't give me that ole timer crap

It's true
It could happen to you
Take a bus
Every single day there's more of us

I'm a certified senior citizen
Got Florida on my mind
I won't even mess with checkers and chess
Just take me to the place where they bump and grind

This year
It all seems too clear
Understood
It ain't nothin' but another childhood

I'm a certified senior citizen
And one of these days
I'm gonna get myself a gray panthers punk rock band
Raise hell in Arizona
