lyrics

(YOU AND ME) PUSHIN’ UP DAISIES
(lyrics: David Greenberger, music: Chandler Travis)

Hands full of wrinkles with knuckles grown large
Eyes open wide at the wheel of a car
Driving for pleasure, never for work
In casual dresses and casual shirts

We'll grow old by not being lazy
And our hearts will beat until they stop
Bury us close but leave room at the top
For you and me pushin’ up daisies

My chin will be double and your teeth will be few
My joints will have trouble and yours will too
My legs will grow tired and your hair will turn gray
We won't even see the changes as the time slips away

We'll grow old by not being lazy
And our hearts will beat until they stop
Bury us close but leave room at the top
For you and me pushin’ up daisies

I'll see you now, I'll see you then
There's never been a doubt
Eyes open wide, the light shines in
'Til the light goes out

The wine from our wedding past fifty years old
We'll drink it one winter when it’s snowing and cold
The ice on the lake, a half a foot thick
We'll cross it on skates and we'll never get sick

We'll grow old by not being lazy
And our hearts will beat until they stop
Bury us close but leave room at the top
For you and me pushin’ up daisies
