You could hardly see for all the snow,
Spread the rabbit ears as far as they'd go,
Pull a chair up to the TV set,
"Good night David, good night Chet."Dependin' on the channel you tuned, You got Rob and Laura - or Ward and June. It felt so good, felt so right.
Life looked better in black and white.
I Love Lucy, The Real McCoys,
Dennis the Menace, the Cleaver boys,
Rawhide, Gunsmoke, Wagon Train,
Superman, and Lois Lane,
Father Knows Best, Patty Duke,
Rin Tin Tin, and Lassie, too,
Donna Reed on Thursday night.
Life looked better in black and white
I wanna go back to black and white,
Everything always turned out right.
Simple people, simple lives,
Good guys always won the fight.
Now nothin's the way it seems
In everyday life or on the screen.
Nobody ever just flies a kite.
I wanna go back to black and white.
In God they trusted, in bed they slept.
A promise made was a promise kept.
They never cussed or broke their vows.
They'd never make the network now!
But if I could I'd rather be
In a TV town in '63.
It felt so good, felt so right.
Life looked better in black and white.
I'd trade all the channels on the satellite,
If I could turn back the clock tonight
To when everybody knew wrong from right.
Life was better in black and white

Now let's be honest ........ technology has improved drastically over the years. There is no need to even think about raising from your seat on the couch to change the channel or raise the volume on your television set. I remember when my family had a black & white television and I was always asked to get up in order to either change the channel or the volume. I didn't enjoy doing it at the time. When the colored television & remote controls became widely available I thought they were the most fantastic things in the world. I must admit that watching a television show that was originally black & white and has been converted to color sort of loses it's appeal. I prefer to watch the old shows exactly as they were in "BLACK & WHITE".

The above poem was sent to me in an email. I placed it on to my site because it is part of a Nostalgic past time. It also expresses the difference between then & now. Recently it has been brought to my attention that the above words are lyrics to a song composed by Steve Vaus. Please click on by his site and explore it. Steve has written some very wonderful songs. Thank you Steve for allowing me to place your lyrics up on my site. Click below to visit Steve's site.
