THEY DON’T MAKE IT LIKE THEY USED TO

They don’t make it like they used to,
something, I know, has changed.
They don’t make it like they used to,
I know I’m not deranged.
The shampoo I’ve used for years
does not work like it used to do,
it’s caused my hair to go gray,
and has made it fall out, too.
The soap that I settled on
oh, those many years ago,
still makes my skin smell good,
but it’s caused it to wrinkle though.
The eye drops that I use
and have for many a year
seems now to tire my eyes,
making my vision so unclear.
My clothes no longer fit me,
they grow tighter every day.
Why do they make the fabric
to shrink so, in this way?
Can’t we just return to how it was,
back to when things were right?
To when I had all my hair,
and before I lost my sight?
Back to when my skin was smooth
and my clothes fit every day?
Before my hearing began to fail?
What is it that you say?
They don’t make it like they used to,
and I don’t think that they care.
Every day I have to deal
with this life that’s now unfair.
I sure would like to see
things like they were once again.
Back to the way it was,
in those days way back when.
