There Once Was a Time

Does no one remember how?

 

Straighten your tie or skirt,

And just make it to the "A" train.

Hurry, hurry, don't be late!

Make it on that choo-choo fro Chattanooga.

 

Dance to the Boogie Woogie jazz

Of a Company B bugle boy.

Grab your girl; go out together,

Dancing cheek to cheek.

 

Smiling, sigh as you listen to

The murmur of the cottonwood trees.

Quietly, now, so you can hear

Those Muskrats Ramble.

 

Wander through life's hidden valleys,

That Sentimental Journey.

Stop to kiss the daisies--

The glen's little String of Pearls.

 

I think I remember now.
