Lyrics

Source: Adults

Author: Barry Gee

Title: Nostalgia.


Chorus:

Can't you remember back when

Women were women and men were real men

In the good old days, the good old days

Just when did they come to an end

Nostalgia was better back then, my friend

Nostalgia was better back then.

The sun shone from May to November

We played in the streets without fear

Built snowmen with dad in December

Flews kites in the spring of the year

The days were all endlessly sunny

We sunbathed for hours on end

'though we didn't have that much money

We had a whole lot of weather back then.


Chorus:   Can't you remember back when etc.


Children were seen but not heard then

They played quietly with their toys

Gran was a joy not a burden

Grandad was one of the boys

Neighbours walked in without knocking

On Sundays we always ate meat

At night the doors didn't need locking

And dogs didn't crap in the street.

Chorus:  Can't you remember back when etc.


You could go to the very best restaurant

And eat all you wanted to eat

Then take in just any show that you want

And sit in the very best seat

Later on you'd go out drinking

And freely buy round after round

Take a taxi back home without thinking

And still have change left from a pound.



Can't you remember back when

Women were women and men were real men

In the good old days, the good old days

Just when did they come to an end

Nostalgia was better back then, my friend

Nostalgia was better back then.
