Nothing To Excite The Dead To Dance

Now that the smelling salts have been applied...
And you have survived from revival visitations,
With Howdy Dowdy, Buffalo Bob and Clarabelle.
And your fixations with the way things were in the 60's,
Can be quickly packed away to rust!
With your awards for thrusting your hips doing the 'Twist'.
Get this...
Those days are not coming back.
Get that?
Those days are not coming back!
Snap out of it.

What is being done today,
Will not make you way of life,
Any more popular than you believe it should be!
As a museum exhibition treated with preserved dignity!
Maybe a sleeping aid...
To put those who have progressed to sleep.
But nothing to excite the dead to dance!
