Ice Cream Sodas And Lollipops And A Red Hot Spinning Top    (1975)

Where did all the people go of yesteryear?
Where did all the laughter go I used to hear?
Take me back to the good old days
How do you do's and the kindly ways
Of ice cream sodas and lollipops
And a red hot spinning top

I remember little children when they would say "yes ma'am" ("yes ma'am")
And I remember everybody loving their good ol' Uncle Sam
I remember knowing my neighbors for miles around
And every Sunday gather in the singing church, oh how I love that sound

Where did all the people go of yesteryear?
Where did all the laughter go I used to hear?
Take me back to the good old days
How do you do's and the kindly ways
Of ice cream sodas and lollipops
And a red hot spinning top

I remember when my dad would make a deal with a handshake
And I remember dirty language in the movies being like: "For goodness sake!"
I remember going on a picnic on a Sunday afternoon
And I remember songs about the moon in June, oh how I love those tunes

Where did all the people go of yesteryear?
Where did all the laughter go I used to hear?
Take me back to the good old days
How do you do's and the kindly ways
Of ice cream sodas and lollipops
And a red hot spinning top

I said ice cream sodas and lollipops
And a red hot spinning top
