    Life in Black and White - For older folks only - (Under 40? You won't
    understand.)

    You could hardly see for all the snow,
    Spread the rabbit ears as far as they go.
    Pull a chair up to the TV set,
    "Good night, David; Good night, Chet."

    Dependin' on the channel you tuned
    You got Rob and Laura - or Ward and June.
    It felt so good, felt so right.
    Life looked better in black and white.

    I Love Lucy, The Real McCoys
    Dennis the Menace, the Cleaver boys
    Rawhide, Gunsmoke, Wagon Train
    Superman, Jimmy & Lois Lane.

    Father Knows Best, Patty Duke
    Rin Tin Tin and Lassie too,
    Donna Reed on Thursday night--
    Life looked better in black and white.

    I wanna go back to black and white.
    Everything always turned out right.
    Simple people, simple lives
    Good guys always won the fights.

    Now nothing is the way it seems
    In living color on the TV screen.
    Too many murders, too much fight,
    I wanna go back to black and white

    In God they trusted, in bed they slept.
    A promise made was a promise kept.
    They never cussed or broke their vows.
    They'd never make the network now.

    But if I could, I'd rather be
    In a TV town in '53.
    It felt so good, felt so right
    Life looked better in black and white.

    I'd trade all the channels on the satellite
    If I could just turn back the clock tonight
    To when everybody knew wrong from right
    Life was better in black and white!
