Lyrics

My grandfather used to take us
Down to the ice skatin' show
At the hockey rink at the stadium
When the Blackhawks were on the road
We'd cheer for the clowns in their costumes
And the beautiful figure ballet
Of the former Olympic champions
As they'd spin on the frozen spray
But there was one moment in that whole spectacular show
When the band would strike up a quiet waltz
And they turned all the lights down low

Old smoothies
Two old people on skates
Sequined septuagenarians
Doing their figure eights
How they'd glide 'round the arena
So serene and sublime
They had been the old smoothies for a long, long time

Where did they get the stamina?
And how did they stay in shape?
I know that took the lion's share
Of liniment, pride and tape
See my Grandfather smile and the smoothies
Would glide and pirouette
Then he would reach for my Grandma's hand
And Grandma's eyes got wet
The spotlight stayed on the smoothies
While they circled the ice and bowed
Before fifteen thousand hockey fans
Not a dry eye in the crowd

Old smoothies
Two old people on skates
Sequined septuagenarians
Doing their figure eights
How they'd glide 'round the arena
So serene and sublime
They had been the old smoothies for a long, long time
