OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
*When I was young I had lots of pep
I could get around, didn't need no help
Now I'm old and getting gray
People look at me and say

Allemande left your corner girl, turn your partner right you whirl
Allemande left with the corner and weave around that ring
I've done got too old, I just got too old
Swing that girl and promenade
I've done got too old, I just got too old
I'm too old to cut the mustard anymore


FIGURE (1)    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads promenade half way with your maid
Down the middle square thru four hands I say
Right & left thru the outside pair
Veer left and circulate, half tag
Scoot back boys, scoot back girls
Swing the corner girl and promenade
I've done got too old, I just got too old
I'm too old to cut the mustard anymore


FIGURE (2)    Basic, corner progression

Heads promenade half way with your maid
Down the middle square thru four hands I say
Right & left thru the outside pair
Veer left, ferris wheel into the middle, oh yes you will
Square thru 3/4 round
Swing the corner girl and promenade
I've done got too old, I just got too old
I'm too old to cut the mustard anymore


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Well, I used to jump just like a deer
Now I need a new landing gear
Used to could jump a picket fence
Now I'm lucky if I jump an inch


**When I was young I had an automobile
Slid myself right under the wheel
Had to fight the girls off with a stick
Now they say "You make me sick"

Too Old To Cut The Mustard

When I was young I had lots of pep,
I could get around I didn't need no help.
But since I'm old and a-gettin' gray,
The people look at me and say....

Too old, too old,
He's too old to cut the mustard anymore.
He's a-gettin' too old, he's done got too old,
He's too old to cut the mustard anymore.

I used to could jump just like a deer,
But now I need a new landing gear.
I used to could jump a picket fence,
But now I'm lucky if I jump an inch.

Too old, too old,
He's too old to cut the mustard anymore.
He's a-gettin' too old, he's done got too old,
He's too old to cut the mustard anymore.

When I was young I had an automobile,
I'd scoot myself right under the wheel.
I had to fight the gals off with a stick,
But now they say, "Oh, he makes me sick"

Too old, too old,
He's too old to cut the mustard anymore.
He's a-gettin' too old, he's done got too old,
He's too old to cut the mustard anymore.

Lyrics by Bill Carlisle.
Recorded by Dick Todd; Ernest Tubb; Marlene Dietrich and Rosemary Clooney.
