So, after supper tonight, while Thomas was weaseling out of doing dishes and Hillary was standing around, having finished putting fridge things away,
Thomas hummed a few bars, and asked what that was the theme song for.
Recognizing an American classic, I immediately jumped in with:
(doing my best "Edith Bunker" impression)
"Boy the way Glen Miller played, songs that made the hit parade.
Guys like us we had it made; Those were the days.
Didn't need no welfare state. Everybody pulled his weight..."
Then I stopped and said I never knew what the next line was...
I always heard something like... and I mumbled a few words that started with "GIO"
Wait! I said. I can look it up! The computer is on here...
"Gee our old LaSalle ran great"?!
Now I know.
Those were, indeed the days!
