The Kinks', "Come Dancing"
The Lyrics:
The day they knocked down the palley,
my sister stood and cried.
The day they knocked down the palley,
part of my childhood died, just died.
Looking back on how things have changed can be depressing.

The Kinks', "Low Budget"
The Lyrics:
"Were all on our uppers, were all going skint. I used to smoke cigar's, but now I suck Polo mint's"
The Kinks enjoy'd a mini-revival of sorts round about this time, and used the material Ray Davies had written about the economic sinkhole that was the average British citizen's plight, and launched a pretty profitable "Give The People What They Want" tour. Ironic
