One Foot In The Grave

Victor Meldrew

Richard Wilson as the grouchy Victor Meldrew in BBC TV's hit sitcom "One Foot In The Grave"

This version is the actual theme tune to the programme of the same name.
It is sung by Eric Idle

They say I might as well face the truth,
That I am just too long in the tooth,
Oh Iím an OAP and with needs,
But I have not yet quite gone to seed.
I may be over the hill now that I have retired,
Fading away but Iím not yet expired,
Clapped out, run down, too old to save,
One foot in the grave
Music and lyrics by: Eric Idle
