Remember the Fifty's

 I'll tell you one thing, if things 
Keep going the way they are, 
it's going to be impossible to 
Buy a week's groceries for $10.00.

Have you seen the new cars 
Coming out next year?  It won't 
Be long before $1,000.00 will 
Only buy a used one. 


If cigarettes keep going up in 
Price, I'm going to quit; 20 cents 
A pack is ridiculous. 
Did you hear the post office is 
Thinking about charging 7 cents 
Just to mail a letter.
If they raise the minimum wage 
To $1.00, nobody will be able to 
Hire outside help at the store.
When I first started driving, who 
Would have thought gas would 
Someday cost 25 cents a gallon. 
Guess we'd be better off leaving 
The car in the garage.
I'm afraid to send my kids to the 
Movies any more.  Ever since they 
Let Clark Gable get by with saying 
It seems every new movie has 
Either HELL or DAMN in it.

I read the other day where some 
Scientist thinks it's possible to put 
A man on the moon by the end of 
The century. They even have some 
Fellows they call astronauts 
Preparing for it down in Texas .
Did you see where some baseball 
Player just signed a contract for 
$50,000 a year just to play ball? 
It wouldn't surprise me if someday 
They'll be making more than the 
I never thought I'd see the day 
All our kitchen appliances would 
Be electric.  They're even making 
Electric typewriters now. 
It's too bad things are so tough 
Nowadays.  I see where a few 
Married women are having to 
Work to make ends meet. 
It won't be long before young 
Couples are going to have to hire 
Someone to watch their kids so 
They can both work.
I'm afraid the Volkswagen car 
Is going to open the door to a 
Whole lot of foreign business.
Thank goodness I won't live to 
See the day when the Government 
Takes half our income in taxes.  I 
Sometimes wonder if we are 
Electing the best people to 
The fast food restaurant is 
Convenient for a quick meal, 
But I seriously doubt they 
Will ever catch on.
There is no sense going on short 
Trips anymore for a weekend.  It 
Costs nearly $2.00 a night to stay 
In a hotel.

No one can afford to be sick 
Anymore.  At $15.00 a day in 
The hospital, it's too rich for 
My blood.

If they think I'll pay 30 cents 
For a haircut, forget it.
