Old Days - May 1, 2001

Old Days
(c) May 1, 2001

Do you remember bubble gum
with comics stuffed inside
a nickel for an almond joy
baseball cards for one thin dime

Admittance to the fair was free
we didn't have to pay
hotdogs for a quarter
ride a wagon stacked with hay

No need to lock your backdoor
noone stole a thing
leave the keys right in the car
with no alarms to ring

I think my life was better then
the world was pure and sweet
half the town would go the church
on Sunday morn' to meet

Maybe I'm just getting old
it's not that hard to say
life was so much better
back in my good old days
