Retirement Song

People, especially men, dread retirement. When I decided to retire in 2020, I wanted to write to articulate these fears. This is a self-deprecating, humorous rock song that has become a viral hit and has given me tremendous recognition.

my Mail box is empty,
Phone don’t ring at all,
I’m getting bored out of my head,
Don’t know whom to call

My woman she don’t talk to me
She just shuts the door
says Cant you see I’m working love
please Come back after four

Make yourself useful Honey
Get me a cup of tea
Hang around Do something
‘til I’m done and I’m free
