We met, and we married a long time ago
we worked long hours, when wages were low.
No T.v, no wireless, no bath, times were hard
just cold water taps, and a walk up the yard.
No holidays abroad, no posh carpets on floors.
But we had coal on the fire, and didn't lock doors.
Our children arrived, no pill in those days,
and we brought them all up, without any state aid.
They were quite safe to play in the park,
old folk weren't afraid to go out in the dark.
No vallium, no drugs, no L.S.D.
we cured most ills, with a nice cup of tea
but if you were sick, you were treated at once,
no fill up a form, and come back in six months.
No vandals, no muggings, there was nothing to rob.
and we were quite rich with a couple of bob.
People were happier in those far off days,
kinder and caring in so many ways.
Milkmen, and paperboys used to whistle and sing
a night at the pictures was a bit of a fling
we all get our trouble and strife,
and we just
love to share the pattern of life.
But now we're alone, we look back through the years
we don't think of the hard times
the trouble and tears,
We remember the blessings, our home, and our love.
That we shared them together, and thank god above
