When our old age pension check comes to our door
We won't have to dread the poorhouse any more
Though we're old and thin and gray
Good times will be back to stay
When our old age pension check comes to our door.

When her old age pension check comes to her door
Dear old grandma won't be lonesome any more
She'll be waiting at the gate, ever' night she'll have a date
When her old age pension check comes to her door.

Grow a flowing, long white beard and use a cane
'Cause you're in your second childhood, don't complain
Life will just begin at sixty, we'll all feel very frisky
When our old age pension check comes to our door.

Powder and paint will be abolished on that day
And hoop skirts will then be brought back into play
Painted cheeks will be the rage, and old maids will tell their age
When their old age pension checks come to their door.

All the drug stores will go bankrupt on that day
For cosmetics, they will all be put away
I'll put a flapper on the shelf, get a grandma for myself
When her old age pension check comes to her door.

There's a man that turned this country upside down
With his old age pension rumor going 'round
If you want in on the fun, send your dime to Washington
And that old age pension man will be around.
