How Times Have Changed

          How Times Have Changed

How times have changed, as I remember
As a boy I would be fascinated for hours
Playing records on the old wind up gramophone
And twiddling the knobs of my Grandfather's
Radio receiver, with it's large valves glowing
And giving out hums and squeals as I turned
The dial backwards and forwards.
As a teenager, I grew up watching television
And listening to my stereogram, playing all the
Latest songs of the time.
In my adult years, I would watch images from
The new colour television and quadraphonics
Stereo, which was the latest thing around.
I am now middle age, with all this behind me
As technology has changed, with computers,
Video machines and compact disk players;
How I preferred the earlier times, where life
Was a lot more simpler place to be.
