    When I was in my younger days,
    I weighed a few pounds less,
    I needn't hold my tummy in
    to wear a belted dress.
    But now that I am older,
    I've set my body free;
    There's comfort of elastic
    Where once my waist would be.
    Inventor of those high-heeled shoes
    My feet have not forgiven;
    I have to wear a nine now,
    But used to wear a seven.

    [​IMG]
    And how about those blasted tights --
    They're sized by weight, you see,
    So how come when I put them on
    The crotch is at my knee?
    I need to wear these glasses
    As the print's been getting smaller;
    And it wasn't very long ago
    I know that I was taller.
    Though my hair has turned to grey
    and my skin no longer fits,
    On the inside, I'm the same old me,
    the outside's changed a bit.
