Malvina Reynolds: Song Lyrics and Poems  

Masquerade (Gray Power Song)

Notes: words and music by Malvina Reynolds; copyright 1975 Schroder Music Company, renewed 2003.

Masquerade, masquerade,
We are people over fifty on parade, unafraid,
There are spirits young and bright,
Full of wisdom, full of flight,
Underneath the mask of aging that we wear,
So don't be misled by the white upon your head,
You're the flower of gray power on parade.
