It was a long, long decade.
Everyone's tempers were frayed.
Everyone was dismayed.
Nobody got laid.
It was a long, long decade.
Everyone's kids were afraid.
Football crowds stood and prayed.
It was a long, long decade.
Nobody was well paid.
Everyone was a bit staid.
It was a long, long decade.
Everyone's teeth were decayed.
It was a long, long decade.
That's what everyone say -ed.
Diana met Mohammed Al Fayed.
It was a long, long decade.
Every bitch was spayed.
Every donkey brayed.
Every train was delayed.
It was a long, long decade.
Everyone was surveyed.
It was a long, long, long, long,
long, long, long, long, long, long decade.
