"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 (a car) 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!"
