All In The Family


 

Boy, the way Glenn Miller played
Songs that made the hit parade
Guys like us we had it made.
Those were the days

Didn't need no welfare state
Everybody pulled his weight.
Gee, our old LaSalle ran great those were the days.

And you knew who you were then,
Girls were girls and men were men.
Mister we could use a man like Herbert Hoover again.
People seemed to be content.
Fifty dollars paid the rent.
Freaks were in a circus tent.
Those were the days.

Take a little sunday spin, 
Go to watch the Dodgers win.
Have yourself a dandy day that cost you under a fin.
Hair was short and skirts were long. 
Kate Smith really sold a song.
I just don't know what went wrong. 
Those were the days.

Closing Theme (unaired lyrics)

Got a feelin it's all over now - 
All over now, were through.
And tomorrow I'll be lonesome, remembering you.

Got a feelin the sun will be gone - 
The day will be long and blue.
And tomorrow I'll be crying, remembering you.

There's a far away look in your eye when you try to pretend to me,
That everything is the same it used to be.

I see it's all over now 
All over now, were through.
And tomorrow I'll be startin, remembering you.
