Dated Song Lyrics:

"Summer"
The Dated Lyrics:
Rappin' on the CB radio in your van
We'll give a big "Ten-Four" to the truckin' man
Why They're Dated:
CB radios are not used recreationally nowadays, and vans (the full-size kind popular in the 1970s) as personal transportation are few and far between in the 2000s.
Submitted by: Andria
"Summer"
The Dated Lyrics:
Eight-track playin' all your favorite sounds
Why They're Dated:
Only restored vintage cars from the 1970s and those owned by technological luddites still contain 8-track players, and the tapes themselves are as rare as hen's teeth, especially when in playable condition.
