Artist's Notes

Wrote this song on a truck camping trip out west.

This was our first trip since retiring and I was finally getting the feel of what retirement is about.


Lyrics

Retired 

By Brent Godfrey   ©   2019           

Verse 1:

I get up when I wake up    No alarms to start my day

May be early in the morning or late who can say

Don?t follow any plans it?s different every day            

I get up when I wake up I?m happy to say

 

Chorus:

I?m retired.   I?m retired.

I may be getting older but I?m feeling better everyday

Just do what I want to do

And I?m still in love with you

Each day we start something new  Getting better every day

 

Verse 2:

I do what I want to.   Each and every day

Play guitar or take a hike.  It?s different each day.

Don?t answer to anybody.   I don?t get in the way.

I do what I want to I?m happy to say

 

Chorus

Instrumental Verse

 

Verse 3:

Age is just a number.   You?re as old as you feel.

Whose to say what?s important or to say what?s not real

Say goodbye to anxiety and say goodbye to fear

Going to work on my bucket list.  A new goal every year.

 

Chorus
