Happy Retirement

Written By: Scott Dow

Take this watch for all you’ve given us
Now you can count the minutes left
And you can reminisce about
All of the life you missed.

With you gone we’ll all be sadder
Now that you have climbed your corporate ladder
There’s no way to go but down
Be careful you don’t break your watch

Now that someday has become today
Aren’t you glad you have your 401K?
40 years is not that long
No, 40 years is not that long…

To hold a steady job like you did
Is no small feat
You’re no young kid
No, you’re bent and gray
Hey, but aren’t you glad you have your 401K?
40 years is not that long
No, 40 years is not that that long.

Happy retirement
Happy retirement
Have a happy retirement
Happy, happy retirement
Have a happy retirement!
