When everything is all said and done

And we're sitting around like statues of stone

Why can't we play like we use to hun

They won't let us at the old folks home

No, they won't let us at the old folks home.

Every beginning has to have an end

Another loved one has slipped around the bend

Did they take the wrong road, or did they take the right

Into eternal sunshine, or into eternal night.

When we first started out, there were a lot of us

Now we are down to just a few

I remember when we could fill a bus

Now all we need is a Subaru.

Half brothers left us one by one

Dad went next, followed by mom

And the youngest brother, he went too

Then our only half sister, she followed suite.

As for our other sister, she's not at home

The ones who are left here, are left alone

Wondering how the years were clipped away

Like the hair on our heads that has turned to gray.

Every beginning is said to have an end

Another loved one has slipped around the bend

Did they take the wrong road or did they take the right

Into eternal sunshine or into eternal night.

When everything is all said and done

And we're sitting around like statues of stone

Why can't we play like we use to hun

They won't let us at the old folks home

No, they won't let us at the old folks home.
