It was running home after school
watching Dick Clark and being "cool"
Bandstand was my favorite show
oh! how I miss that long ago
Bill Haley, The Four Tops
the Stroll and doing the Bop
Saddle Oxfords, and Poodle skirts
I miss those days so much it hurts
soda's at the local drive-in
haven't taste the same since then
going steady, Angora rings
love's first taste, and its sting
slumber parties, and freezing brassiere's
keeping secrets from little sisters ears
there was Ben Casey, and Dr. Kildare
suddendly I felt sickness in the air
and when Rickey Nelson came on TV
Ozzie and Harriet was where I wanted to be
singing and dancing to Ricky's songs
"Traveling Man" all night long
the boys played "Chicken" on "Dead mans Curve"
driving fast trying not to swerve
we had Mustangs, Chevy's, and Pink Cadillac's
crusing the streets with girls sitting in the back
football games at the local high
graduating and saying goodbye
yes the "50's" was the place to be
watching Bandstand on TV !
Thanks Dick for the memories!
