When I grew up life was so hard

There were no swing sets in the yard

And baby sitters were unknown

Your parents left you home alone

There were no bathrooms in the house

You took the path to an outhouse.

We never minded that at all

Although at times I thought I’d fall

Into that abyss in the ground

Without a hope of being found

That’s how I learned to be so brave

Like all the candles I still save.

Yet life was real and full of hope

One didn’t in the darkness grope,

It made us strong and very wise

Our world was full of great surprise.

God gave us will to make a choice

To use our hands and heart and voice.

The stoves were big and black and bold

And kept us warm through winter cold

Each family had an icebox

No TV but a small voice-box

We cherished it, both girl and boy

Those days of old were full of joy !
