Too Old To Cut The Mustard


Too Old To Cut The Mustard

By Chuck RitenouR

1st Verse:

If you're too old to cut the mustard

you're still young enough to lick the jar

If you can't have things the way you want them

you're gonna have to settle for the way things are

little boy crying says I can't do

all the things those big boys do

old man says sonny I know that's true

then that old man starts crying too.

SOLO

2nd Verse:

If you're too old to cut the mustard

you're still young enough to lick the jar

if you can't have things the way you want them

you're gonna have to settle for the way things are

the good die young so I've been told

but I don't want to die before I grow old

and when my dome is covered with snow

I'll try to keep a fire in the furnace below

SOLO

3rd Verse:

If you're too old to cut the mustard

you're still young enough to lick the jar

if you can't have things the way you want them

you're gonna have to settle for the way things are

if you're feeling like you're past your prime

and mother nature's losing ground to ole father time

get down on your knees thank your lucky stars

you're still young enough to lick the jar

'cause if you're too old to cut the mustard

you're still young enough to lick the jar

yes, if you're too old to cut the mustard

you're still young enough to lick the jar.

END
