nursing home blues lyrics – d.r.i

i am an old man living alone
my loved ones stuck me here in this nursing home
i’ve lost all usefulness
i want to die!

i have them all the best years of my life
then maggie p*ssed away, now i’ve got no wife
so kill me, young man or hand me your knife
i want to die!

my beautiful daughter says i get in the way
i depress her because i’m old and grey
she can’t stand to see the wrinkles in my skin
by golly, girl, you’re my only kin
i want to die!

like an old horse put out to pasture
too old to be of any more use to it’s master
but when i lie in bed and i reminisce
i begin to think maybe this is best
i’m out of the way, not in anyone’s hair
and though i’m costing them money, i don’t care
i want to die!
