"Just Stating The Obvious From Years Gone Bye"
Over the many years
there have been many fears
good-bad times with tears
Children once were a delight
they were very polite
had respect both day and night
Prices were much less
money went for a dress
could save more without stress
People worked hard
they were proud of their backyard
work made them a diehard
they say back then was greater
now that it is much later
maybe yes maybe no let's ask the alligator
The world is upside down
I am living in it all around
let's go back before we drown
A time when things made sense
people were kind and not tense
kids were not on the defense
where are we now
must everything be allowed
tomorrow will be here very soon-oh wow
