“Grandpa (Tell Me ’bout the Good Old Days)” by the Judds

Grandpa, tell me ’bout the good old days
Sometimes it feels like
This world’s gone crazy
Grandpa, take me back to yesterday
When the line between right and wrong
Didn’t seem so hazy

Did lovers really fall in love to stay
And stand beside each other, come what may?
Was a promise really something people kept
Not just something they would say?
Did families really bow their heads to pray?
Did daddies really never go away?
Oh, Grandpa, tell me ’bout the good old days

Grandpa, everything is changing fast
We call it progress
But I just don’t know
And Grandpa, let’s wander back into the past
And paint me the picture
Of long ago

Did lovers really fall in love to stay
And stand beside each other come what may?
Was a promise really something people kept
Not just something they would say and then forget?
Did families really bow their heads to pray?
Did daddies really never go away?
Oh, Grandpa, tell me ’bout the good old days
Oh, Grandpa, tell me ’bout the good old days

“Those Were the Days” by Carroll O’Connor and Jean Stapleton from 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!

And you knew where you were then.
Girls were girls and men were men.
Mister, we could use a man like Herbert Hoover again.

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

“Pump Up the Jam” by Technotronic

Pump up the jam
Pump it up
While your feet are stomping
And the jam is pumping
Look ahead: the crowd is jumpin’

Pump it up a little more
Get the party goin’ on the dance floor
See? ‘Coz that’s where the party’s at
And you’ll find out, if you do that

I want
A place to stay
Get your booty on the floor, tonight
Make my day

Look ahead: the crowd are jumpin’

And you’ll find out, if you do that

Get your booty on the floor, tonight

“That’s Something to Be Proud Of” by Montgomery Gentry

There’s a story that my daddy tells religiously
Like clockwork every time he sees an opening
In a conversation about the way things used to be

Well, I’d just roll my eyes and make a beeline for the door

But I’d always end up starry-eyed, cross-legged on the floor
Hanging on to every word
Man, the things I heard

It was harder times and longer days
Five miles to school, uphill both ways
We were cane-switched raised, and dirt-floor poor
‘Course that was back before the war

Yeah, your uncle and I made quite a pair
Flying F-15’s through hostile air
He went down but they missed me by a hair
He’d always stop right there and say

That’s something to be proud of
That’s a life you can hang your hat on
That’s a chin held high as the tears fall down
A gut sucked in, a chest stuck out
Like a small-town flag a-flyin’
Or a newborn baby cryin’
In the arms of the woman that you love
That’s something to be proud of

Son graduatin’ college, that was mama’s dream
But I was on my way to anywhere else when I turned 18
‘Cause when you gotta fast car you think you’ve got everything
I learned quick those GTO’s don’t run on faith
I ended up broken down in some town north of L.A.
Working maximum hours for minimum wage

Well, I fell in love, next thing I know
The babies came, the car got sold
I sure do miss that old hot rod
But you sure save gas in them foreign jobs
Dad, I wonder if I ever let you down
If you’re ashamed of how I turned out
Well, he lowered his voice, then he raised his brow
Said, let me tell ya right now

That’s something to be proud of
That’s a life you can hang your hat on
You don’t need to make a million
Just be thankful to be workin’
If you’re doing what you’re able
And putting food there on the table
And providing for the family that you love
That’s something to be proud of

And if all you ever really do is the best you can
Well, you did it man

That’s something to be proud of
That’s a life you can hang your hat on
That’s a chin held high as the tears fall down
A gut sucked in, a chest stuck out
Like a small-town flag a-flyin’
Or a newborn baby cryin’
In the arms of the woman that you love
That’s something to be proud of
That’s something to be proud of
Yeah, that’s something to be proud of
That’s something to be proud of
Now that’s something to be proud of

“Denver, the Last Dinosaur” by Unknown from Denver, the Last Dinosaur

One, two, three, four

Denver, the last dinosaur
He’s my friend and a whole lot more
Denver, the last dinosaur
Shows me a world I never saw before

From the hot, hot jungle
A long time ago
Comes a cool, cool friend
My pal dino

Denver the last dinosaur
He’s my friend and a whole lot more
Denver the last dinosaur
Shows me a world I never saw before

Everywhere we go
We don’t really care
If people stop and stare
At our pal dino

From pre-history
Through the rock and roll spotlight
We’ve found a friend who helps us make it through all right

That’s Denver the last dinosaur
He’s my friend and a whole lot more
Denver the last dinosaur
Shows me a world I never saw before
