Lighten Up Song Lyrics By Seamus Moore. A song about getting old and losing your memory and forgetting peoples names. Chords included.

(G) You know you're getting old when you're (D) acting like a (G) child,
 Doing (C) cart wheels in the (G) kitchen and singing  (D) ''Born To Be Wild''                       
 And you're (G) losing all you're marbles and you're (D) looking for you're (G) keys,
 And you (C) don't know where you're (G) car is so you're (D) calling the po(G)lice.

 Lighten up, it's not the (C) end, we'll (G) all go down that road and 'round the (D) bend,
 Live each (G) day like it's you're  (C) last, don't kiss (G) anybody's (C↓) ass
 I (G) wish I could re(D)member how this (G) ends. But it's so good to (D) be with you old (G) friends.

Here's The Bass Run Lead Notes

 (G) You know you're getting old when you're (D) acting like a (G) child,

doing (C) cart wheels in the (G) kitchen and singing (D) ''Born To Be Wild''.

And you're (G) losing all you're marbles and you're (C) looking for you're (G) keys

and you (C) don't know where you're (G) car is so you're (D) calling the po(G)lice.

 

Lighten up, it's not the (C) end,

we'll (G) all go down that road and 'round the (D) bend,

Live each (G) day like it's you're (C) last, don't kiss (G) anybody's (C↓) ass

You know you're getting old when you're acting like a child,
Doing cartwheeles in the kitchen and singing ''Born To Be Wild''
And you're losing all you're marbles and you're looking for you're keys,
And you don't know where you're car is so you're calling the police.

Lighten up, it's not the end, we'll all go down that road and 'round the bend,
Live each day like it's you're last, don't kiss anybody's ass,
I wish I could remember how this ends.But it's so good to be with you old friends.

And you know you're getting old when the doctor's on the phone,
And you're sitting in the kitchen but you tell them you're at home
He calls again you're still not in, you're off your rocking chair,
You're out to lunch that happens once, the lights go off up-stairs.
Lighten up, it's not the end, we'll all go down that road and 'round the bend,
Live each day like it's you're last, don't kiss anybody's ass,
I wish I could remember how this ends.But it's so good to be with friends.

You know you're getting old when you can't remember names,
Every Tom Dick Harry Kate and Mary looks the same.
So you call Tom Dick and you call Dick Tom and Kate And Mary Pat.
You're forgetting to remember all the names that you forget.

Lighten up, it's not the end, we'll all go down that road and 'round the bend,
Live each day like it's you're last, don't kiss anybody's ass,
I wish I could remember how this ends.But it's so good to be wi

I'm getting old, you're getting old, there's no one getting young,
But you know the oldest fiddle always plays the sweetest tune,
So good bye Mick and goodbye Pat and goodbye Kate and Mary,
I wish I knew where I was at I think it's Tipperary.

Lighten up, it's not the end, we'll all go down that road and 'round the bend,
Live each day like it's you're last, don't kiss anybody's ass,
I wish I could remember how this ends.But it's so good to be wi
