Slippers by Bernie Martin

I bet when you were younger you were handsome,
I bet you had a way with all the girls,
Bet you used to stay up after midnight
Planning how you'd conquer the whole world.

Now you go to sleep soon after supper;
Seems the world has done some conquering of its own.
What happened to those girls you often wonder
As you sit there watching TV all alone.

You say tomorrow I will get myself together,
Just knowing that tomorrow never comes.
You'd like to go out walking after midnight,
But it's dark out there and cold; you'd best stay home.

I bet when you were younger you were handsome,
Bet you had a way with all the girls,
Bet you used to stay up after midnight
Planning how you'd conquer the whole world.
