Ainít what it use to be
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.
