Or friends? In another life It’s been a long, long time Put out to pasture, put on ice Wouldn't that be nice? But I’ll never know The meaning of the word retire And while our heads were in the cloud The whole world went to hell And all we got was This lousy abandoned mall It's been a long, long time
