Ask any mirror
Is there no escape
He will show you lines that time has etched into your face
And all around the edges
Life is turning gray
And you can no longer turn your head the other way
And the new hard times are here
And the new hard times are here

When eating comes too easy
Nothing makes you think
There's too much time to sun yourself
And too much wine to drink
And now there's nothing left to help maintain your failing pride
You hunger for the older days when rich men satisfied
And the new hard times are here
And the new hard times are here

In the twilight years life takes a bend
And you start to view it from the other end
You laughed a lot and had your fun
Now you find there's so much left undone
And ashes to ashes, dust to dust
In your lifetime that's the only rule you've come to trust
And waiting 'round the corner
To put his arms around you
Death comes a'courting and you don't know what to do
And the new hard times are here
And the new hard times are here
And the new hard times are here
And the new hard times are here
