BLACK & WHITE

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
set,
"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
right.
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
white.
