Those Were The Days

Boy, the way Glen Miller played
Songs that made the Hit Parade
Guys like us, we had it made
Those were the days!
Didn't need no welfare state
Everybody pulled his weight
Gee, our old LaSalle ran great
Those were the days!
And you knew where you were then
Girls were girls and men were men
Mister, we could use a man like Herbert Hoover again
People seemed to be content
Fifty dollars paid the rent
Freaks were in a circus tent
Those were the days!
Take a little Sunday spin
go to watch the Dodgers win.
Have yourself a dandy day that cost you under a fin (five dollar bill)
Hair was short and skirts were long
Kate Smith really sold a song
I don't know just what went wrong
Those Were the Days!"
