Back to those crinoline days
In those dear old crinoline days

Old fashioned people with their old fashioned ways
When the girl a fellow courted
Was the girl he married and supported
Back in eighteen seventy-four
Rosy complexions weren't bought in a store
Granny and grand-daddy longingly gaze
Back to those crinoline days
