Class Of '57 lyrics

Album: Farewell Concert

(Don Reid - Harold Reid)

Tommy's selling used cars
Nancy's fixing hair
Harvey runs a grocery store
And Margaret doesn't care.

Jerry drives a truck for Sears
And Charlotte's on the make
And Paul sells life insurance
And part time real estate.

Helen is a hostess
Frank works at the mill
Janet teaches grade school
And prob'ly always will.

Bob works for the city
And Jack's in lab research
And Peggy plays the organ
At the Presbyterian Church.

And the class of '57 had its dreams
We all thought we'd change the world
With our great works and deeds
Or maybe we just thought the world
Would change to fit our needs.
The class of '57 had its dreams.

Betty runs a trailer park
Jan sells Tupperware
Randy's on an insane ward
And Mary's on welfare.

Charlie took a job with Ford
And Joe took Freddie's wife
Charlotte took a millionaire
And Freddie took his life.

John is big in cattle
Ray is deep in debt
Where Mavis finally wound up
Is anybody's bet.

Linda married Sonny
And Brenda married me
And the class of all of us
Is just a part of history.

And the class of '57 had its dreams
But living life day to day
Is never like it seems
Things get complicated when
You get past eighteen.
But the class of '57 had its dreams.

Oh, the class of '57 had its dreams...
