  Retirement, the carriage at the end of the road
That everybody has to board

I didn't wish to re-tire
So I kept myself for hire
Then came the stroke
Making my body broke
Making my soul croak
I boarded the carriage at the end of the road
Where it was dark like night
Where I didn't find too many spots bright
Where the air was cool
Like air in winter
That hit my skin like a sliver

Retirement, the carriage at the end of the road
That everybody has to board

In the peace and quiet of re-tirement
I forgot all my re-sentment
My body healed
My mind found peace
I found solace
In that cool dark place

Retirement, the carriage at the end of the road
That everybody has to board.
