A.A.R.P. by the Retirement Village People

On the occasion of Charlie's 50th birthday party, November 24, 2007.
Sung (and danced) to the tune of "The YMCA" by the ADAPTIVE Retirement Village People.

Charlie, there's no need to feel down
I said Charlie, pick yourself off the ground
I say Charlie, we're gonna be there with you
There's no need to be unhappy
Charlie, there's still plenty to do
I said Charlie, going downhill's fun too
I say Charlie, you can do what you please
They say life begins at fifty
Chorus:
It's time to join in the A.A.R.P.
We'll all be joinin' the A.A.R.P.
Charlie don't make a fuss
You can hang out with us
And the Adaptive Family
A.A.R.P.
We'll all be joinin' the A.A.R.P.
There's no reason to wait
For the senior rate
And you'll be in good company
Charlie, start a rock and roll band
Woodstock nation, go and live off the land
I say Charlie, it's time to buy that red porche
You can have a mid-life crisis
Charlie, you're not over the hill
I said Charlie, they've come up with a pill
It's a marvel, it will cure everything
That don't work quite like it used to
Chorus:
It's time to join in the A.A.R.P.
We'll all be joinin' the A.A.R.P.
Charlie don't make a fuss
You can hang out with us
And the Adaptive Family
A.A.R.P.
We'll all be joinin' the A.A.R.P.
There's no reason to wait
For the senior rate
And you'll be in good company
Charlie, do a round-the-world sail
I say Charlie, you could blaze a new trail
What'll stop you? wi' those Itallian genes
Do they come in a relaxed fit?
Charlie, you could start the day late
I said Charlie, stay in bed until eight
I say Charlie, sounds rather boring to me
Why don't we, do a-no-ther startup?
Chorus:
Let's all forget about the A.A.R.P.
We'll all forget about the A.A.R.P.
We could do one more switch
In a new market niche
And we'll be in your company
A.A.R.P.
We'll all forget about the A.A.R.P.
Charlie, Charlie, do a startup with me
Come on, Charlie, do a startup with me
A.A.R.P.
We'll all forget about the A.A.R.P.
Charlie, Charlie, do a startup with me
Come on, Charlie, do a startup with me
"HAPPY BIRTHDAY CHARLIE"
