Our world has gotten bad if you look around,
People with guns and no jobs to be found.
The schools are not like they once used to be,
Armed Guards and Security is now what you see.
What happened to the days a child walked alone,
Down the sidewalk to a friends without a cell phone.
Without being approached by an unwanted stranger,
Without having to worry about any danger.
Has the times changed that much since I was young?
Staying out after dark and the songs that we sung?
We had respect for our Parents, Teachers and Others,
Got yelled at by other Parents like our own Mothers.
Yes, the times have changed and that's pretty sad,
That our once peaceful world has gotten this bad.
