Survival or Country Club Life
jbberg

I could sit and worry
 1
Why my children seldom call
 2
Could contemplate my aches and pains
 3
So I'd never smile at all
 4
 
 
My spouse, perhaps , is cranky
 5
Cause the market's in a slump
 6
I run to the fitness center
 7
Find myself some iron to pump
 8
 
 
A friend's having problems
 9
With a grandchild that's a fool
 10
I tell her to grab a towel
 11
We'll do laps at the pool
 12
 
 
You'll see some folks at dinner
 13
While their troubles aren't the same
 14
They smile through their makeup
 15
And we play the 'kiss-kiss" game
 16
 
 
Miserable is the mood that
 17
You most surely want to change
 18
Take it out on the golf balls
 19
Provided on the range
 20
 
 
Put on your skinny new jeans
 21
Hear a concert with some friends
 22
Take comfort in their warmness
 23
'Cause the nonsense never ends
 24
 
 
The world is in an awful mess
 25
With problems of every sort
 26
If you should want advice from me
 27
I'll be on the tennis court
