All the Good Times are Yet to Come

1. We used to go out to work for our pay,
  Up at six, then out of the door ...
Now we're retired we're at leisure all day,
  Little darlin' don't you weep no more.

(Chorus:)
  All the good times are yet to come,
      Oh the good times and more!
  All the good times are yet to come,
      Little darlin' don't you weep no more.

 "Keep your eyes on the road" - what a bore!
But now, with a Bus Pass, we can look at the view!
 Little darlin' don't you weep no more.

   All the good times are yet to come ...

3. Our children were lovely, when big and when small,
  Never gave us a chance (for) to slack,
We found ourselves always at their beck and call.
  But our grandchildren - we can give back!

  All the good times are yet to come ...

  And the occasional Friday we'd shirk,
And now, strange to say, we're so busy each day -
 How'd we ever have time to work?

   All the good times are yet to come ...


5. If our hearing-aid's on, then you don't have to shout,
  And our reading specs help us to see;
With pills from the doctor we can still get about,
  And all our prescriptions are free!

Chorus:
  All the good times are yet to come,
    Oh the good times and more!
  All the good times are yet to come,
    Little darlin' don't you weep no more.
