Wanted collaborators but it's hard finding old people who rap!

lyrics

Intro:
Retired? Hmm, I think they mean expired. And it’s a damn shame. Hmm, Kids!

Verse 1:
Dear Lord, What did I do to you to make you make me age / And then stick me in a world where youth means everything? / Where gray hair means insane / senile / and mundane / I might as well be dead and put six feet in my grave / ‘cause once you hit 30 your face begins to fade / And it’s not too long after that the world forgets your name / And then they lock you in a home and throw away the key / And they call it retirement but that’s not really what it means / You see it’s really like you’re luggage that your kids don’t wanna keep / When you changed their diapers and gave them punks lungs to breathe / Only to be cut off and shut out like a garden full of weeds / And they tell themselves they foot the bill so they’re able sleep / It’s fucked up if you ask me / you gave them everything / And they throw you out like old meat / now that’s what’s so insane / Fuck it that’s okay / cause one day you gonna be as old as me / And then you’ll be locked away / just because you’re slightly aged

Chorus:
Oh the great I used to be
Yes I had everything
But now I’m just elderly
Nobody even sees me
Or the great I used to be
Yes I had everything
But now I’m just elderly
Nobody even sees me

Verse 2:
I’m not dead yet so why’m I irrelevant / it’s all up in the head / and just forget the rest / I am just an elder / A geezer of a fell-er / so go home and tell her / that her dad doesn’t matter / That her dad just gets fatter / And has an old man bladder / That he needs a walker / To run from his stalker / And that he needs a wheel chair / And cut of all of his hair / Because some of it’s bare / And he’s out of his Nair

Chorus:
Oh the great I used to be
Yes I had everything
But now I’m just elderly
Nobody even sees me
Or the great I used to be
Yes I had everything
But now I’m just elderly
Nobody even sees me

Bridge:
Lock me up throw out my key
Change the locks no more home for me
But you’ll sleep well because you did the right thing
At least there they’ll care for me and meet my needs

Chorus:
Oh the great I used to be
Yes I had everything
But now I’m just elderly
Nobody even sees me
Or the great I used to be
Yes I had everything
But now I’m just elderly
Nobody even sees me
