good old days

This is my disbelieving smile: to those who say that we’re headed for hell – to those who say we’ve come so much farther than any other people – to those who say the good old days were so much different than today.

My friends, these are the good old days. And we too will fade away like ancient memories. Our kids will watch us get old, and they’ll laugh about our ancient ways and funny words.

We are tomorrow’s good old days.

“Good Old Days”

Some say the world is going to hell,

And some say that it just might as well,

They think we’re farther than anyone’s come,

They seem to forget the circles we run,

We are the fading memories of tired old men,

The whispered legends of way back when,

These are our children’s ancient ways,

And we are tomorrow’s good old days,

Some say we’re making history,

Flying cars and robots, these modern machines,

They think we’re farther than anyone’s come,

They seem to forget the circles we run,
