Well, my Baby-Boomer generation is getting older. So I got to wondering how Janis Joplin would see things if she was still alive.

Here’s a little song in honor of her.

(Sing it to the tune of “Mercedes Benz.”  And be sure to pronounce “again” like a Canadian.)

Oh Lord why’d ya give me
this crazy white hair
The years go so fast now
it doesn’t seem fair
Once I was a young man
as strong as a bear
Oh Lord why’d ya give me
this crazy white hair?

Oh Lord why’d ya send me
the things that you send
I pee way more often
than I did back then
If I travel too far
I depend on Depends
Oh Lord why’d ya send me
the things that you send

Oh Lord I guess I
can’t really complain
You don’t just send sunshine
you send us the rain
But I can find blessings
now and again
Oh Lord I guess I
can’t really complain

Oh Lord I guess I
can’t really complain
