What Happened?

What happened to the days of old?

When spirits were high

And prices were low.

 

What happened to the days of old?

When a neighbor would lend their home

Now you can’t even borrow the phone

 

What happened to the days of old?

When a car was made of metal, not cheap glass

And instead of I’m sorry, it’s now get off my @*!

 

What happened to the days of old?

When it was God Bless America and merry Christmas

Not some whack Happy Holidays

 

What happened to the days of old?

When soldiers came home and were treated with respect

Now they’re swept under the bus like insects

 

What happened to the days of old?

When the president actually cared

Not worrying about people of their own stature’s healthcare

 

I’ll tell you what happened.

It’s in the heart of one and all

And it’s time to bring it out

Before we crash and fall.
