The Lyrics

I have been very slow on parody ideas... I hope you enjoy this hybrid!
Oh yeah, the way Glenn Miller played, songs that made the hit parade,
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, guys like us, they had it made
Those were the days

Back in those days, yeah, yeah, you knew where you were then,
Way back when girls were girls, yeah yeah, and men were men
Herb Hoover again

(Archie & Edith)
Those were the days, yes they were, those were the days
Those were their ways, way before everyone was a meathead
So long
Those were their ways, yes they were, I miss those days
Those were the days, our LaSalle, boy it ran great

Didn't need no welfare states, everyone pulled his weight
Way back when, yeah yeah, our old LaSalle ran great
Mike is a meathead

(Archie & Edith)
Those were the days, yes they were, those were the days
There were no meatheads, people were normal, where they now?
They're gone
We could use a man like Herbert Hoover again
Those were the days, yes they were, those were the days

Obviously I had to score you higher for humor than pacing. If anyone's interested, here's what I did with the song:
