Ah Velma, things ain't the way used to be They sure ain't mama, they sure ain't Whatever happened to fair dealing? And pure ethics and nice manners? Why is it everyone now is a pain in the ass? Whatever happened to class? Class Whatever happened to, please, may I? And, "yes, thank you? and, how charming? Now, every son of a bitch is a snake in the grass Whatever happened to class? Class! Ah, there ain't no gentlemen to open up the doors There ain't no ladies now there's only pigs and whores And even kids'll knock ya down so they can pass Nobody's got no class! Whatever happened to old values? And fine morals? And good breeding? Now, no one even says oops when they're Passing their gas Whatevcer happened to class? Class Ah, there ain't no gentlemen who's fit for any use And any girl'd touch your privates for a deuce And even kids'll kick your shins and give you sass (and even kids'll kick your shins and give you sass) Nobody's got no class! All you read about today is rape and theft Jesus Christ, ain't there no decency left? Nobody's got no class! Everybody you watch Has got his brains in his crotch Holly crap (Holly crap) What a shame (What a shame) What became of class?
