Urban breakdown, society in
we used to live simply, off the working man’s toil.
stuck together, in good times and bad,
Good family values are what we had.
Then life became too busy, chasing materialistic ideals,
to talk to each other; over family meals.
Greed and selfishness crept in,
and living together was no longer a sin.
Money and false
celebrities became the gods,
and going to church was no longer mod.
and good friends distant.
Now we have so many lives
in a muddle,
with so many young mums left to struggle.
What happened to
free love, the 60s dream?
Why did our lives turn out so mean?
to see so many relationships fail.
No one said the liberal life, would have
such a sting in the tail.
Whether you live in the country the city or town,
we are all paying the price of the urban breakdown.
