days gone by

I can remember hubba bubba and the black jack
I remember when songs never sounded slack
I remember when kids were just exactly that
And there was nothing wrong in being a bit fat
I remember the computer was for just playing games
But in today's millennium it just ain't the same
I remember when kids used to have manners for folks
But now it's seems parents roles have been revoked 
I remember when childhood meant just that very thing
And there was no living in sin... On our hand was a ring
I remember when chips probably cost 50p
But now to buy fish and chips its a rarity
I remember how as kids we would spend time and play
But nowadays they're locked away on the ps3 all day
I remember on a Saturday we had to wash clothes by hand
Something the kids of today don't understand 
I remember a time petrol was less than a pound
But in 2012 I have to travel on the wheels on the bus that go round and round
I can remember a time when we worked hard to support ourselves
Nowadays though it seems we can help ourselves from shop shelves
I remember a time when we cared for the old
But now some of them cannot keep warm in the cold
I remember a time when things were good
I'm walking in footsteps where perhaps you should

    Too many days have indeed gone by since those things you remember so well. Sometimes, I think we move backwards in our advancements forward. Nice rhyme, rhythm, flow and meaning in this one. Nicely done. Joe
