Hit Songs Renamed for Seniors

I got this from my friend Ellie, who lives north of Las Vegas in a very active retirement community. If you are old enough to remember these original hits then you’re old enough to appreciate the new titles.

1960 Hits Renamed
Some of the artists of the 60’s are revising their hits with new lyrics to accommodate aging baby boomers who can remember doing the “Limbo” as if it were yesterday.

They include:

Herman’s Hermits —
Mrs. Brown, You’ve Got a Lovely Walker

Ringo Starr — 
I Get By With A Little Help From Depends

The Bee Gees — 
How Can You Mend A Broken Hip?

Roberta Flack— 
The First Time Ever I Forgot Your Face 

Johnny Nash — 
I Can’t See Clearly Now 

Paul Simon—
Fifty Ways To Lose Your Liver

The Commodores —
Once, Twice, Three Times To The Bathroom

Procol Harem— 
A Whiter Shade Of Hair 

Leo Sayer — 
You Make Me Feel Like Napping

The Temptations — 
Papa’s Got A Kidney Stone


Denture Queen 

Tony Orlando — 
Knock 3 Times On The Ceiling If You Hear Me Fall

Helen Reddy — 
I Am Woman; Hear Me Snore 

Willie Nelson —
On the Commode Again

Every day may not be good. . ..
but there’s something good in every day.

    1. It would be fun–the idea is already there in the title.
      What would you think if I leaked a wee bit?
      Would you stand up and walk out on me
      Lend me your spare and I’ll change my pants
      And I’ll try very hard not to pee.
      I’ll stay dry with a little help from depends
      Mm, I buy some so I don’t need to borrow from friends
      I’m gonna try with a little help from my friends.


  1. I’m old enough to recall some of them and too old to know most of them, as my favorite musical era is the 1920s-30s-40s. I especially remember Roberta Flack’s “The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face” (1960) because great jazz singers were becoming almost a thing of the past by then.
