The Lyrics

Saw each show a hundred times
I had all their theme songs memorized
Today's programs always make me cry
"Cause they're bad

It makes me really start to miss those old days
One day I'd watch silly castaways
And on another day I'd be Lost in Space
And they made me glad

I had tears in my eyes and I cried
When they cancelled Rawhide

It was 1960 something
I was watchin' my television
I really miss The Flintstones
The Lucy Show and The Twilight Zone
When you could turn on your TV
And the programs weren't so sleazy
Man I wouldn't trade those shows for nothin'
Back in 1960 something

New decade with new shows that made life fun
I enjoyed How the West was Won
Never could miss a Stanford and Son
I loved Hee-Haw

And after my long and hard school day was thru
I would watch Captain Kangaroo
Than at night I'd view Kung Fu
The best show I saw

Couldn't wait for Wonder Woman and Good Times
Those shows were fine

It was 1970 something
I was watchin' my television
Man I just loved those Happy Days
Couldn't wait till Fonzie went "eh"
When you could turn on your TV
And the programs weren't so sleazy
Man I wouldn't trade those shows for nothin'
Back in 1970 something

Now I've got every show on DVD
So I am still able to see
I just wish sometimes
Sometimes

It was 1970 something
I was watchin' my television
Man I just loved those Happy Days
Couldn't wait till Fonzie went "eh"
When you could turn on your TV
And the programs weren't so sleazy
Man I wouldn't trade those shows for nothin'
Back in 1970 something

1960- something
Aw, it was 19 something
