1969

                                                                                                  
             1969


 I was a child in 1969, I had not a clue of the 
 World,

 I knew of certain things, those of which I lived 
 Through.

 Riding my bike and a deadly Halloween night, that's 
 Right,

 I remember all that I did as a kid, a lifetime ago, 
 And a family.

 Vietnam was a reality, and I was protected by my 
 Childish world,

 Butch Cassidy and the Sundance kid, Clint Eastwood 
 Was the man.

 Raindrops keep falling on my head, Simon and Garfunkel
 Were grand,

 Scooby- Doo and all of the colorful cartoons that I knew,
 I think of you.

 Baseball with the miracle mets, Bill Russell, and the 
 champion celtics,

 Joe Namath with his Guarantee, the Jets beat the Colts, 
 Charles Manson, and history.


 The Innocence of the Brady Bunch, walk on the moon, 
 Led Zeppelin, and a tune,

 1969 was the year when love and innocence were mixed 
 With my day.
