The Rutles: Back In '64
Many years from now When your grandchildren climb upon your knee You may be quite astonished to see How many channels they can change on t.v. When some old film in black and white Comes on and there you are upon the screen Or is it someone just like someone you've been Looking not a day over nineteen? "Grand dad" the little ones are asking you "Why do you look so sad?" (so sad) So you tell them all about the fun you had Back in '64 before you were born People had no time for pouring scorn (or scoring porn) On dreams of love and peace No one was obese Only tight trousers were worn Back in '64 we were at it like knives Back in '64 the time of our lives Was in the present tense Now does that make common sense Any more than girls with hairdos called beehives? (zoom zoom zoom zoom) Back in '64 before you were born Back in '64 before you were born But as you've gone on and on Your audience has flown And as you find yourself all on your own You may wistfully recall How Benjamin Disraeli said that "Life is too short to be small" Or maybe like some old time song Overall it's long - so so long... it's all over.
