The Lyrics

Life used to be easy,
Candy wrapper easy,
Kids down the block, a grocery store
Now, it's nuke threats and war
And a whole different day..

I remember when
The skies were blue above us
Night news wouldn't grieve us

Now dogs run loose and neighbors just fight
No one smiles at all
Everyone is uptight
There's too much to think of
When we turn out the light..

We are not in Kansas anymore

Score was a word in bowling,
Nobody said the F word
But that respect, don't work anymore
It's an old fashion door
Years ago, miles away..

Now, no one can remember
One day from another
We forgot how to laugh
Hold in tears, never cry
No one knows how to love
They just know how to lie..

It's a domino world,
No more Mom's apple pie
And we are not in Kansas anymore

It's a domino world,
No more Mom's apple pie
And we are not in Kansas anymore

A well-evolved parody. Carry on, my Airfarcewon.

Your lines "We forgot how to laugh / Hold in tears, never cry" reminded me of Jacque Brel's "We forget how to cry / We take photos instead" which is even more true today than when he wrote "We're Alone."

I am in Kansas, and unfortunately, most of the lamentable changes in society affect us, too. Very nicely written song. Holds the nostalgic feel of the original. "Candy wrapper easy" is beautiful.

Yeah, I miss the good old days too! 555!

Deep and thoughtful. In other words, very AFW-like. Best wishes from another relic of the 20th century. ;D

Rose-colored glasses? Maybe, but keep 'em on. And bear in mind that back in the day, we couldn't share ideas like this. Well, maybe we could if we had a mind to it, but it was so much harder. And a happy new year to you too.
