    You could hardly see for all the snow,
    Spread the rabbit ears as far as they'd go, Pull a chair up to the TV
    "Good night David, good night Chet."

    Dependin' on the channel you tuned,
    You got Rob and Laura - or Ward and June. It felt so good, felt so
    Life looked better in black and white.

    I Love Lucy, The Real McCoys,
    Dennis the Menace, the Cleaver boys,
    Rawhide, Gunsmoke, Wagon Train,
    Superman, and Lois Lane.
    Father Knows Best, Patty Duke,
    Rin Tin Tin, and Lassie, too,
    Donna Reed on Thursday night.
    Life looked better in black and white

    I wanna go back to black and white,
    Everything always turned out right.
    Simple people, simple lives,
    Good guys always won the fight.

    Now nothin's the way it seems
    In everyday life or on the screen.
    Nobody ever just flies a kite.
    I wanna go back to black and white.

    In God they trusted, in bed they slept.
    A promise made was a promise kept.
    They never cussed or broke their vows.
    They'd never make the network now!

    But if I could I'd rather be
    In a TV town in '63.
    It felt so good, felt so right.
    Life looked better in black and white.

    I'd trade all the channels on the satellite, If I could turn back the
    clock tonight
    To when everybody knew wrong from right. Life was better in black and

    Just noticed that Charlie Chan made it to Satellite TV. May have been around awhile, I dont know, but I want more. Hope Ted Turner dont ruin it by coloring it. 13 yr old looks at B&W and shrugs, "How can you watch that?" If he only knew what memories come with it.
