Elderly American Songbook: Accustomed To This Pace

01 Jan

I’ve grown accustomed to this pace,
So slowly does the day begin.
I’ve grown content to mostly shuffle
My way from room to room;
No bumps, no falls,
No hip replacement thralls.
I’ve come to love this granny gear,
No ducking out nor dashing in.
Where once I was so speedy,
Not to mention nimble and quick,
I might could crank it out again, you see, but heck….
I’ve grown accustomed to this clip,
Accustomed to this gait,
Accustomed to this pace.

For an original rendition of this great Lerner & Loewe standard, check out Ms Diana Krall.
