Made a Deal with My Knees
Brooks Bradbury

always heard you’re the first to go
but you’re still here and all i know
you’re a little sore and this is real
promise me a decade more and
i’ll make you one sweet deal

i promise that we’ll sit and rock
i’ll think of you around the clock
knee massages every day and then
we’ll stay in bed from 10 to 10
won’t trade you in for man-made parts
i’ll play more sports like cards and darts
eat less food and drink less beers
please, oh please,
just ten more years!
i beg of you my dear sweet knees

you’ve never had one bone to pick
held me up through thin and thick
protected me as kneecaps do
took my abuse, stayed flexible too
all the while, I regret
how often i’ve looked down on you

ten years from now we’ll sit and rock
i’ll think of you around the clock
knee massages each day and then
we’ll stay in bed from 10 to 10
won’t trade you in for man-made parts
i’ll play more sports like cards and darts
eat less food and drink less beers
please oh please, just ten more years!
i beg of you my dear sweet knees
let’s just see what we can squeeze
from you my standard issue knees

arthroscopic? not for you!
if you can make it ten years through
and after that we’ll stop and rest
and i’ll remind you again
how you’re both the best
i come to you on bended knees
make a deal with me
oh please!
