Twentieth Century Fads

For many years society has offered up to you and me
So many things to buy or say or do
While stupid is the kindest thing to say for most of them
I've often fallen for them, haven't you?

spoken: Things like…

Ouija boards and go-go boots
Smiley faces, Betty Boop
Bobby socks and big zoot suits
Twentieth Century Fads

Superballs and saddle shoes
Granny glasses, Rubik's cubes
Putt-putt golf and beehive dos
Twentieth Century Fads

I've grown too fat for my Nehru shirt
And platform shoes just cause my calves to hurt
Still got my pet rock and an old mood ring
I wonder what fads the 21st will bring?

Bean bag chairs and fanny packs
Flagpole sitting, coonskin caps
Hula hoops and hacky sacks
Twentieth Century Fads

(instrumental break)

It's just plain nuts what some people do
The silly stuff they want to sell to you
But if it's funky, keen or really rad
Ain't risky to bet that it'll start a fad

Lava lamps and all them Smurfs
Phone booth stuffing, poodle skirts
Body paint and Astroturf
Twentieth Century Fads

Some that's foolish and some that hurts
Twentieth Century Fads
