Child of the Seventies

When Ziggy played guitar,
Robertson’s marmalade had a golly on the jar,
A pound bought five drinks in a bar,
And a Ford Anglia was considered a cool car.

Though you couldn’t fool the children of the revolution,
Fairy Liquid was still the housewives’ solution,
School children were taught the meaning of pollution,
And BBC English was considered high-falutin’.

While we were buying a stairway to Heaven,
Ladies shoes only went up to a seven,
A sunshine holiday meant driving down to Devon,
And people waited for the next review from Bernard Levin.
