Feeling Nostalgic For Simpler Times?

Come to think of it, it was inevitable wasn't it?
"Those Were The Days"

Boy, the way Osama prayed. Jihads made the Jews afraid.

Guys like us, we had it made. Those were the days.

Didn't need no failing state. Everywhere we killed debate.

Gee, our old Ca-mel ran great. Those were the days.

And you know who you were then. Girls were veiled and men were men.

Mister, we could use a man like Gamal Nassar again.

People seemed to be content. Fifty rhiyals got you bent.

Freaks were in a nomad's tent. Those were the days.

Take a little Friday spin, go to watch the swordsman grin.

Have yourself a dandy day that reminds you never to sin.

Tempers were short and burkhas were long. Ours sons turned into living bombs.

I don't know just what went wrong. Those Were The Days.
