SOME SAY GREEN IS THE GRASS OF YESTERYEARS MEMORIES

Some say green is the grass of yesteryears memories
Nothing is like it was everything’s fading into history
The sweets tasted better from the local corner shops
Newspapers, pop, bread, sliced cheese ham & chops
The shopkeeper always knew your name & your tab
Smiled a good morning & always willing to gab

Some say green is the grass of yesteryears memories
There was always a consensus of old working remedies
Following ancient ways, hankies tied to trees by the stream
A new child, a new job whatever was the dream
In the grass always walking around perfect fairy rings
Always careful even when saying don’t believe these things

Some say green is the grass of yesteryears memories
Country fairs, Punch & Judy, Morris men & drunken melodies
The early morning Ipswich mists from the Orwell River
The blanketing smog & pollution that would bring fear
On the other side of the street the rain heavily falling
All you had to do was cross over to feel the sun shining
