The Good Old Days


The Good Old Days

MHS 1961

Oh, the excitement of being in a new school!

Our class was the first to go all the way through.

The girls wore their poodle skirts and pony tails too.

The boys had crew cuts and white socks in full view.


Curry, Brooks, Coder and Dye wanted each of us to do our best

For they knew when we faced life it would put us to the test.

Homecoming, sports, plays and ADC

Really made our school days fun for you and me.


Remember the hoods, padiddles and "wow, that's neat."

We were an expressive group that is hard to beat.

Girls slumber parties and couples smooching in the coal bin.

We never considered this an earth shaking sin!


The rec was the hot spot to dance rock and roll.

Elvis Presley still shares a part of my soul.

Cruising the one ways and meeting new friends

Gave us something to do on a boring weekend.


Well, those days are over but wasn't it fun.

Not "all" things did we confess to our son!

Now only the good times tend to shine through.

Giving us a smile and a hearty laugh too.


Let's take time to remember our deceased classmates.

God chose them to live in heavens special place.

May he bless each one of us on our Silver Anniversary

With just one more happy fun filled memory.
