 Struggling with Class? Become a better singer in 30 days with these videos!

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?

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?

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?


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?
