I wish I were a retiree without a single care,
I’d move around the countryside or go OS somewhere
I wouldn’t rush I’d take my time there’s so much world to see
Oh I wish I were a retiree enjoying being free.
I wish I were a retiree not just a working wife
I’d cut my hair and buy a car and get on with my life
I’d leave each winter chase the sun, I never would be cold
Oh I wish I were a retiree enjoying growing old
I wish I were a retiree I wouldn’t work too hard
I’d write and read and maybe paint and watch him in the yard
We’d breakfast late and watch the birds, we’d lunch under our tree
Oh I wish I were a retiree enjoying being me.
