Best version is Walter Huston's, with a nod to Jimmy Durante's.

Steelers fan says:
When I was a young man courting the girls
I played me a waiting game.
If a maid refused with tossing curls
I'd let the old Earth take a couple of whirls
While I plied her with tears in place of pearls
As time came around, she came my way.
As time came around, she came.

But it's a long long while
From May to December
And the days grow short
Once you reach September.
And the autumn weather
Turns the leaves to flame
And I haven't got time
For the waiting game.

...These precious days I spend with you.

--Kurt Weill, Maxwell Anderson

Well, I could easily repeat many that I've read, but I'll just mention the one favorite of mine that no one else has mentioned yet:

On Growing Older - Strawbs

It's nice to see you posting in this forum. Maybe you can help to clean up the liberal cesspool that this place has become.

The best I've heard recently is "Waiting on June" by Holly Williams. It's from her fine 2013 album, 'The Highway.' Granddaughter of Hank, daughter of Hank Jr., half-sister of Hank III, and an outstanding talent in her own right.

Waiting on June - Holly Williams

Poems,Prayers, and Promises, by John Denver.

Brilliant, to begin with. But takes on a unique pathos knowing how things ended for him, and how the song was written at what turned out to be literally the halfway point of his life.

Before it was a Jimmie Rodgers song, it was a Pete Seeger song and a Weavers song.

"Mother's Little Helper" is not about getting old. It's about dependency on prescription head medicine.

Philip, Fischman, Vivazappa:

I am with you on the place Who By Numbers occupies in our favorites. I have always believed it's one of, if not their finest, releases, if for nothing than the lyric ..."Take 2-hundred and seventy six, You know this used to be fun".

On another discussion, I even posted Odds and Sods is actually one of my fave Who albums all-time. Admittedly, I'm not unbiased, as I am a major WHO-HEAD.

Anyway, very well stated, friends.

All the best,

The entire album: "The Kinks Are The Village Green Preservation Society" is about looking back and having wisdom of a much older person....Beautiful record that was is!

"The Who By Numbers" was, as I recall, the group's first new album since the "Quadrophenia" project, which was much more ambitious. Not as well-received, I believe. The hit was "Squeeze Box", far from the best song in the band's history.
