My body is far older than my skin
In lots of places, it's gone way past sag
I wish I thought my beauty was within.

I know that vanity is called a sin
I should be grateful that I'm not a hag
My body is far older than my skin.

My hernia juts like a cooling fin
I try to hide it with a shoulder bag
I wish I thought my beauty was within.

My creaking knee makes an appalling din
And if I dance or run it starts to nag
My body is far older than my skin.

My hair's not silver – it is more like tin.
I wear a wig or wrap it in a rag
I wish I thought my beauty was within

Some people would just soak themselves in gin
Or drive around in an expensive Jag.
My body is far older than my skin
I wish I thought my beauty was within.
