Those were the days of gentle people and kind hearts. Yes ma'am, no ma'am, thank you ma'am!

A time when people held the door open for each other.

A time when a car could set out all night without being vandalized or stolen just for spite.


A time when you could walk in the park at night without being robbed or having to fight.

A time when TV was alright for all ages to view.

A time when most folks were honest and true.


A time of childhood memories and days of laughter and enlightenment of the future to be.

.A time spent drinking from the fountain of youth and naively thinking those days would never cease to be!

A time when you could understand the song lyrics and sing along.


A time that you and I lived through and sometimes

wish we could go back to.

A time when everything seemed to be just right!

The 50's are calling you and me tonight!
