Half of a record-Listening to retirement songs can help get individuals excited for the next chapter in lifeFleetwood Mac

"Landslide"

 

I took my love, I took it down

I climbed a mountain and I turned around

And I saw my reflection in the snow-covered hills

'Till the landslide brought me down

 

Oh, mirror in the sky, what is love?

Can the child within my heart rise above?

Can I sail through the changing ocean tides?

Can I handle the seasons of my life?

 

Well, I've been afraid of changing

'Cause I've built my life around you

But time makes you bolder

Even children get older

And I'm getting older too

 

Well, I've been afraid of changing

'Cause I've built my life around you

But time makes you bolder

Even children get older

And I'm getting older too

Oh, I'm getting older too

 

Oh, take my love, take it down

Oh, climb a mountain and turn around

And if you see my reflection in the snow-covered hills

Well the landslide will bring it down

And if you see my reflection in the snow-covered hills

Well the landslide will bring it down, oh oh

The landslide will bring it down

 

Five For Fighting

"100 Years"

 

I'm 15 for a moment

Caught in between 10 and 20

And I'm just dreaming

Counting the ways to where you are

 

I'm 22 for a moment

And she feels better than ever

And we're on fire

Making our way back from Mars

 

15 there's still time for you

Time to buy and time to lose

15 there's never a wish better than this

When you only got a hundred years to live

 

I'm 33 for a moment

I'm still the man, but you see I'm a "they"

A kid on the way, babe

A family on my mind

 

I'm 45 for a moment

The sea is high

And I'm heading into a crisis

Chasing the years of my life

 

15 there's still time for you

Time to buy and time to lose yourself

Within a morning star

 

15 I'm all right with you

15 there's never a wish better than this

When you only got a hundred years to live

 

Half time goes by

Suddenly you’re wise

Another blink of an eye

67 is gone

The sun is getting high

We're moving on

 

I'm 99 for a moment

And dying for just another moment

And I'm just dreaming

Counting the ways to where you are

 

15 there's still time for you

22 I feel her too

33 you’re on your way

Every day's a new day

 

15 there's still time for you

Time to buy and time to choose

Hey 15 there's never a wish better than this

When you only got a hundred years to live

 

John Lennon

"Grow Old With Me"

 

Grow old along with me

The best is yet to be

When our time has come

We will be as one

God bless our love

God bless our love

 

Grow old along with me

Two branches of one tree

Face the setting sun

When the day is done

God bless our love

God bless our love

 

Spending our lives together

Man and wife together

World without end

World without end

 

Grow old along with me

Whatever fate decrees

We will see it through

For our love is true

God bless our love

God bless our love

 

George Jones 

"I Don't Need Your Rockin' Chair"

 

[Chorus:]

I don't need your rockin' chair

Your Geritol or your Medicare

Well I still got Neon in my veins

This grey hair don't mean a thing

I do my rockin' on the stage

You can't put this possum in a cage

My body's old but it ain't impaired

Well I don't need your rockin' chair

 

I ain't ready for the junkyard yet

Cause I still feel like a new corvette

It might take a little longer but I'll get there

Well I don't need your rockin' chair

 

[Chorus:]

I don't need your rockin' chair

Your Geritol or your Medicare

Well I still got Neon in my veins

This grey hair don't mean a thing

I do my rockin' on the stage

You can't put this possum in a cage

My body's old but it ain't impaired

Well I don't need this rockin' chair

 

Retirement don't fit in my plans

You can keep your seat I'm a gonna stand

An Eskimo needs a Fridgedaire

Like I need your rockin' chair

 

[Chorus:]

I don't need your rockin' chair

Your Geritol or your Medicare

Well I still got Neon in my veins

This grey hair don't mean a thing

I do my rockin' on the stage

You can't put this possum in a cage

My body's old but it ain't impaired

Well I don't need your rockin' chair

 

My body's old but it ain't impaired

Well I don't need your rockin' chair... Uh Huh...
