    As I stand here with a hole in the bottom of my shoes
    I just didnt reason
    Now all my friends look at me like I'm bringing bad news
    Guess I'm out of season

    Once apon a time ago
    I thought I had it made
    Then someone came along
    and rained on my parade
    My wife said I must stay up at night thinking of new ways to lose
    Cant get it up anymore

    My sox are so worn, I can see clear down to my toes
    Cant win for losing
    I'm just like the ameture thats getting out classed by the pros
    Aint it confusing

    No matter how you talk it out
    No matter what you say
    The game is getting faster
    and I'm too old to play
    No time on the clock and I just missed the winning free throws
    Cant get it up anymore

    Once I use to light cigars with hundred dollar bills and I was amused
    I must have been joking
    Now if I try just to bum a cigarette, I get refused
    I guess I'll quit smoking

    No matter how you toss the dice
    It comes up craps every time
    I'm just like the poet
    who's lost all his rhyme
    I'm getting too old for the street life so I'll sing these blues
    Cant get it up anymore

    -there was a time
    -How I remember
    -When all I touched would turn to gold
    -Now it's late
    -in December
    - And they say January gonna be very cold

    When my wife left me, this is the story she told
    You cant get it up anymore
    cant get it up anymore
    caaant get it up, anymore:getout:

    Sometimes our get up and go, just gets up and leaves, but...I think it can walk back in, after it catches a break. Pen on fire I see.

    Nice poem. When you can't get it up anymore, use your head and improvise. There's more than one way to "skin a cat".
