Crinoline Days

Album: Music Box (1922)
  • Back to the olden
    Days that were golden
    Memory often strays
    Before anyone could gaze
    At Molly's and May's
    Little ankle displays
    Time with its changes
    Often arranges

    Styles that become the craze
    But I am yearning
    To be returning
    Back to those crinoline days
    In those dear old crinoline days

    Old fashioned people with their old fashioned ways
    When the girl a fellow courted
    Was the girl he married and supported
    Back in eighteen seventy-four
    Rosy complexions weren't bought in a store
    Granny and grand-daddy longingly gaze
    Back to those crinoline days Lyrics from a song in Public Domain
