Compositions For The Young And Old

Found a book of interest the other day

Compositions for the young and old to sing

Poems written many years ago

They told of family and hope and other things

Put together in the old days

When fifteen cents, it was a buck

That's when five would get you ten

Before it took you eight just to get you one

Some people, they don't care when they're down on their luck



Cheap thrills are awful hard to find these days

No one is amused for free

Someone's pulling on your mama's apron strings

You'd better run and see who it is



Playing cards with your neighbors on the back porch

Singing with an old beat-up guitar

Going to the local swimming hole

Until they closed it down, now there's nowhere to go



Things used to be so simple, long time ago

Now everything is so expensive and complicated

I hear you need a license for just about anything



Used to be that a handshake was a man's word

Now we settle arguments in court

No one trusts anyone's intentions anymore



Rummaging through the attic when i'm home

It brings back those memories to me

I'd amuse myself when i was small

When i was younger, the simplest things would do

Now i'm on everybody's mailing list

For things i can't afford to buy

I hear the weatherman

He says "it looks like rain for a while"

I guess i'll have to stay inside

Make peanut butter sandwiches and cry
