He's not the only one
To think that things are going wrong
And all around is only second best.
Time was when all was fair
And we built solid castles in the air
He said that back to back in time's the way to go

Better in my day
I hear everybody say
But then they'll still be saying it tomorrow

It's so hard to take it
When your time is over
Yes it's hard to take it
When you try to remember

Better in my day, in my way, can't you see
Better in my way, here to-day, don't you see

I remember well he said,
When great men led the way instead
Of manicure and media-hugging style
But I don't know what to do
From now on we'll always lose
He said that back to back in time's the way to go

Better in my day
I hear everybody say
But then they'll still be saying it tomorrow

It's so hard to take it
When your time is over
Yes it's hard to take it
When you try to remember

Better in my day, in my way, can't you see
Better in my way, here to-day, don't you see

He's not the only one
To think that things are going wrong
And all around is only second best
But I don't know what to do
From now on we'll always lose
He said that back to back in time's the way to go

The only way to go
Try to remember
Oh better in my day, better in my way.
