  • These days they call you crazy
    If you hold the door for a lady
    If you don't call her girl 'stead of baby
    You're out of style, obsolete

    If you seal a deal with a handshake
    Sit down for a meal and you still pray
    If a promise is somethin' you don't break
    You're the last of a dyin' breed

    When did old-fashioned become so out-of-fashion?
    When did we go out with the old, in with the new?
    And you can bet your ass, there's a lot of us ol' cats
    Wearin' old boots and old hats that ain't ready to give old hat the boot

    We ain't afraid to work in the hot sun
    We can finish a fight but won't start one
    We don't ever forget where we came from
    We got a degree in the old-school
    For all that I've learned I wish that I knew

    When did old-fashioned become so out-of-fashion?
    When did we go out with the old, in with the new?
    And you can bet your ass, there's a lot of us ol' cats
    Wearin' old boots and old hats that ain't ready to give old hat the boot

    I say old-fashioned don't go out-of-fashion, no
    You don't have to throw all of the old out for the new
    And you can bet your ass, there's a lot of us ol' cats
    Wearin' old boots and old hats that ain't ready to give old hat the boot
    Yeah, there's a lot of us old hats
    That ain't ready to give old hat the boot Writer/s: Harold Ryan Tyndell, Jeffrey Don Hyde, Matthew Kyle Jenkins
