Help Ive forgotten the words and lost my written copy.
The last time I used them was in a resignation letter many years ago.

This is to say I'm resigning from today
I've had my fill of growing older standing still.

RESIGNING FROM TODAY!

This is to say that I'm resigning from today
I've had my fill of growing older standing still
This collar chafes and now I know it always will
This is to say that I'm resigning from today

You''ll fill my chair, there'll be a younger man somwhere
Who'll gladly smile, and say he'll try it for a while
Until he finds he's just a card inside a file
You'll fill my chair, there's always younger men somewhere

All I've accrued, well won't you send it to my wife
She'll need the cash to help her start a brand new life
She'll find a man, it seems that loneliness is rife
In middle age, it's all the rage

I'll send a view, a picture postcard back to you
A girl, a beach, she'll be the pupil I can teach
You'll pin it up and always think it's out of reach
I'll send a view, a picture postcard back to you

I hope you'll see I've done the only thing for me
Don't think me wrong, but life's a novel, not a song
It needs a plan, not just a line to sing along
I hope you'll see I've done the only thing for me

I'mm on my way, yes, I'm resigning from today
I know it's late, but life's a lover that won't wait
And when I've gone don't let your hoping turn to hate
this is to say that I'm resigning from today.

As Rick so perspicaciously pointed out, this is an "everyman" song, only this time he's really ANGRY!!!
