Back in 1955

Lyrics by Darlene (with apologies to The Beatles)

Flew into LAX on a crowded plane
I could hardly sleep that night
Southern California has no cold or rain
Looks like Uncle Walt was right
I'm back in 1955
What a great time to be alive, boy
Back in 1955

Drove out the next morning to the Disney place
With my overpriced ticket
Hoping that nobody would get on my case
Because it was counterfeit
I'm back in 1955
What a great time to be alive, boy
Back in 19
Back in 19
Back in 1955

Well the cement pavement was kind of damp
Girls left their shoes behind
Why focus on things that do not work out?
Walt's speech is always on my my my my my my my my my mind
Hey, come on!

I'm back in 1955
What a great time to be alive, boy
Back in 1955

Well this theme-park thing really knocks me out
The crowds just blow my mind
The only thing to complain about
Almost no water fountains I can fi-fi-fi-fi-find.

Oh, show me Frontier, Adventure, Tomorrowland
An ugly Mickey takes my arm
Time to watch Art Linkletter broadcasting now
Gonna take the world by storm
I'm back in 1955
What a great time to be alive, boy
Back in 1955

Here Walt take all my money

Notes

This song is a parody of The Beatles "Back in the U.S.S.R." (duh!). It was written specifically for the DisneyLies.com first annual get together in 2004.
