When did your get your new shoes?
When the Gas meter was empted
When the co-op paid out the Divi.
If dad won on the football pools (never)
When dad got a pay rise
When S.A.T.R.A. had a new shoe to Test,
When the Local shoe factory had a reject sale
When my Brother had grown out of his Shoes
When the school had a Jumble sale
When the foreman of the Shoe factory was off sick
I REMEMBER WHEN
Phone boxes had Buttons A+B
Woolworth's had there own Record Label
Bottles of drink had a deposit of three old pence
Crisps had a wrap of Blue wax paper with salt In
Footballs and boots had to have dubbing on them to keep out the water
Free milk at school
When no one had a hi vis. Jacket
Only cars over 15 years old needed a M.O.T.
21 was the Big Birthday
We did not have laptops
Shops closed for a half day on Thursday
You did not need to Lock up your Bicycle
Fish and chips were warped in newspaper
We had no self service at petrol stations
Air and water was free at service stations
We had No garden Centers, Just the market
We had no B. 0. G. O. F.
We had 2 films at the-Cinema
Smoke filled dance halls and pubs
We had no A.T.M. or pin numbers
WHEN DID YOU....
