The Lyrics

This is not a parody of "1985" by Bowling for Soup. (I'm still trying to figure out one for that.)
Because you're older, went to World's Fair
many years ago
you sent Paul McCartney cards of valentine.
Sixty birthdays? That's why you whine!
Watching "Bonanza," quarter past eight.
Cartwright boys ain't poor.
What was it like in
three-speed Schwinn bike in

I'll be old soon too...

And because bill was signed
all could eat with you.

Huntley and Brinkley giving the news.
Walter Cronkite, too.
LBJ was chatting by the fireside.
Gave Goldwater unpleasant ride.
St. Louis baseball, in NFL
Cleveland won, no more.
Celtics of Boston, Warriors lost in

Every summer Cousin Brucie on WABC
playing songs so dear.
Surfing, land on face!
Grandchildren on your knee
which has been replaced!

Driving your Mustang, two thousand bucks
when it was brand-new.
Indicate precisely what you mean to say:
Gas was cheap, so you drove away!
Didn't get drafted, you were 4-F.
Glad forevermore!
Since Bush is slackin'
wish we were back in
