Ainít what it use to be

Subtitled: Future shock or getting old

Parody on the song; ďThe old gray mareĒ Author: Unknown

 

 

 

The old gray mare she, ainít what she use to be.

And the Holden car these days it, ainít what it use to be.

And the TV shows these dayís they, ainít what they use to be.

Come to think of it, nothing ainít what it use to be.

 

Even this old gray mare, I ainít what I use to be

many long years ago.
