Hello, remember us?  No doubt you felt relief
At having a whole weekend with no kids to cause you grief.
You sang about the future, while we missed all the fun.
And now you hope to share the worlds that younger hands have won!

Hello, remember us?  Those ships of which you sung,
The High Chair of our Council has reserved them for the young.
We could design new rockets, more kind to older hearts,
But we re not sure it s really worth the effort on our parts.

Hello, remember us?  You called us noisy brats.
But now you live in nursing homes and we re in habitats.
We know what dreams you harbored, how much you longed to fly.
Now watch us roam the planets while you waste away and die!
