    Your figure like your friendship
    Gradually grows and grows
    The clothes that you thought that you'd shrunk
    Their size just froze

    When the body that you thought of as yours
    Just ups and goes
    I'll be happy with the weight
    Of the partner that I chose

    Your quick-step is slower
    But your spirit's still out on the floor
    And you can still hack it
    'Cause you know what your feet are free for
    And I'll love my dear
    'Til you can't tuck it in any more, any more

    Your second grey hair came a month
    After the first
    It didn't make you better
    But it didn't make you feel any worse

    Your third grey hair appeared
    With the fourth on your beard
    Your fifth, sixth, seventh sprouted out
    From your nose and your ears

    And I'll love you my partner
    'Til you can't hide the grey any more
    Your distinguished good looks
    Am the ones young girls cannot ignore
    And I'll love you my partner
    'Til the grey hairs hairdresser's floor, hairdresser's floor

    Your eighth and your ninth and your tenth
    You just looked to the sky
    Like the charge of the Light Brigade
    Was passing you by

    Your quick-step is slower
    But your spirit's still out on the floor
    When it comes to raw beauty
    You've a whole whorehouse waiting in store
    Your corset has grown
    Bid you're still always first to the drawer

    And I'll love you my partner
    (And I'll love you my partner)
    'Til the grey hairs the hairdresser's floor
    Hairdresser's floor, hairdresser's floor
