"Wasn't It A Bit Like Now (Parallel '23)"
(Terry Kirkman)
F7 F#7 G7 [5X; start to fade 3rd time]
[Bb]Silly bubbles effervesce
In the m[F7]othball smell of a beaded dress
The "Oh, you kid"s, the marathons
The b[Bb]athtub gin, [Gb7]hungover d[F7]awns
The r[Bb]ound-framed picture, the flat straw hat
The l[F7]ong-nosed roadster at a mile a minute flat
The bell-bottom pants, the fine silk vest
Are all tucked away in her cedar chest
Ah-ha[(F7)]-ha Ah-ha-ha
[F7] [E7] [F7]  
 Ah-ha-ha-ha-ha ha-ah-ah

Wasn't it a bit like [Bb]now
Huh Mom, huh [F7]Dad?
Are all the memories really gone
Gone of the b[Bb]est darn times
I'll [Gb9]bet you ever [F9]had
Instead of "g[Bb]roovy" it was "mean"
And jeepers, it's wild
[Eb]It just doesn't seem that [Edim]different now
The [Bb]why's are the s[/A]ame, it's [/Ab]just a q[G7]uestion of how
[Eb]Doesn't it seem a little[Edim] bit like now
I p[Bb]ose this q[/A]uestion[/Ab] to your a[G7]rching brow
Huh [C7]Mom,[F7] huh [Bb]Dad?
Cos[Bb]metic progress intensifies
The [F7]so-cool look in my baby's eyes
The far-out kids, the kicks they're on
Bb [N.C.]
Obsolete sins, new world's dawn
Three p[Bb]ictures for a quarter in your Carnaby hat
[F7]Jet-propelled cars on the Bonneville flats
Slender legs in their paisley best
All tucked away in her mini-dress
[repeat cborus] 
[repeat intro to fade] 
-- another ace 60's tab from Andrew Rogers
