USED TO BE (Ron Miller / Ken Hirsch) Charlene & Stevie Wonder - 1982 CHARLENE: Superman was killed in Dallas There's no love left in the palace Someone took the Beatles' lead guitar STEVIE: Have another Chivas Regal It's twelve years old and sex is legal Your parents don't know where or who you are BOTH: Used to be the hero of the ball game Took the time to shake the loser's hand Used to be that failure only meant you didn't try In a world where people gave a damn STEVIE: Great big wars in little places Look at all those frightened faces But don't come here, we just don't have the room CHARLENE: Love thy neighbour's wife and daughter Cleanse your life with holy water We don't need to bathe, we've got perfume BOTH: Used to be a knight in shining armour Didn't have to own a shiny car Dignity and courage were the measure of a man Not the drugs he needs to hide the scar Woh-woh-woh-woh-woh-ooh-woh BOTH: Can your teacher read Does your preacher pray Does your president have soul STEVIE: Have you heard a real good ethnic tale today CHARLENE: Mama took her speed STEVIE: And daddy ran away BOTH: But you must'nt lose control CHARLENE: Let's cut a class STEVIE: I got some grass BOTH: The kids are wild, we just can't tame 'em Do we have the right to blame them CHARLENE: We fed them all our indecisions STEVIE: We wrecked their minds with television BOTH: But what the hell, they're too young to feel pain STEVIE: But I believe that love can save tomorrow CHARLENE: Oooh, I believe the truth can make us free BOTH: Someone tried to say it, and we nailed him to the cross I guess it's still the way it used to be (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - April 2018)
