NÃ¥r du er gammel og grÃ¥…

2. marts 2017


Silly Lovesongs kaldte Paul McCartney kærlighedssangene i en forsvarssang. Men, ikke alle kærlighedssange er “dumme”. Nogle er faktisk ret tankevækkende, for nu at bruge et af mine yndlingsord. Det gælder fx Tom Lehrers “When you’re old and grey”.

An awful debility,
A lessened utility,
A loss of mobility
Is a strong possibility.
In all probability
I’ll lose my virility
And you your fertility
And desirability,
And this liability
Of total sterility
Will lead to hostility
And a sense of futility,
So let’s act with agility
While we still have facility,
For we’ll soon reach senility
And lose the ability.

Your teeth will start to go, dear,
Your waist will start to spread.
In twenty years or so, dear,
I’ll wish that you were dead.

I’ll never love you then at all
The way I do today.
So please remember,
When I leave in december,
I told you so in may.
