Remember The Days

By 10th February 2014December 9th, 2019No Comments

Remember the days of the threepunny jubbly
And if you had money left it was a penny bubbly
Remember the days when coppers were nice
And knew all your family it made you think twice
Remember the days when mars bars were big
And you could go down the shop and buy just one cig
Remember the days of dripping on toast
And how we all hated green cabbage on our roast
Remember the days of sugar on bread
And your mam with the nit comb we would all dread
Remember the days of free milk at school
And line up for free dinners we felt a right tool
Remember the days of the headmasters cane
And going in woodwork using a plain
Remember the days you’d put a shilling in the tele
And Sunday night tea was butties and jelly
Remember the days when clubmen would call
And when the rentman knocked your mam tried to stall
Remember the days when wages were in packets
And groups could all sing and not making rackets
Remember the days when we all shared a bed
And one of your neighbours had a pigeon shed
Remember the days of your dad’s old army overcoat
And how did we manage without our remote
Remember the days of packets of spangles
And washing our clothes your mam would use mangles
