lyrics

Grandma, tell me 'bout the days before TV,
Back before the internet and polio vaccines.
Was it hard to be famous and so easy to be clean?
Grandma, tell me all about back then.

Grandma, was the living hard from hand to mouth?
Make me up a list of all you had to do without.
Tucked away so cozy from the clamor and the shouts,
Those were golden days without a doubt.

There goes the ice-wagon rolling down the street.
Put something cool under your tongue.
And here comes the coalman so your house can have some heat.
Grandma, tell me all about you young.

Grandma, well, I'm afraid that I just might explode.
I get so tired of doing all the things that I get told,
And the boys are so mean and the girls are so cold.
Grandma, what happened to my soul?
