    Lyrics

    Pity a man for he don't know
    The trouble he'll pass goin' down life's road.

    When a man is one and twenty he thinks he knows it all
    He can't see down the road of life where he'll ever fall
    But fall he will as he travels through life
    With all its pitfalls, troubles and strife.

    Now at 50 he's goin' real strong
    He has him a family and a nice little home
    But old age is creeping up his spine
    And the day is comin' when the sun won't shine.

    Now at 60 he won't have to guess
    He's already missed the boat that leads to success
    But he's done his best and he can't see why
    The fame of life just passed him by.

    Now at 70 he can see the light
    And he knows he's never been very bright
    But he's done his best as he's travelled by
    And now all he can do is just sit and sigh.

    Pity a man for he don't know
    The trouble he'll pass goin' down life's road.

    Now at 80 he's ready for the wreath
    He's wore out his hair and two sets of teeth
    He has rheumatism in his hands and feet
    And nothin' seems good to eat.

    So you can pity him as he goes up the line
    As he wobbles on the spindle and he's almost blind
    And you can tell by the way that he travels alone
    That it won't be long before he's goin' home.

    But if he's kept the commandments as he's travelled through life
    He'll have a home in heaven where there'll be no strife
    He's worked all his life to get things the way he wants 'em
    He comes here against his will and he goes away disappointed...
