“You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.”
Tidbits from the year 1975
1975, that magical year that Space Mountain opened at Disney World in Orlando, Florida. I lived in Orlando at that time and what an impact Disney had on a once sleepy little city. Disney was new, exciting and fun. There was an abundance of new jobs and in fact, it’s when I got started with modeling and I even snagged a few parts as an extra in commercials.
No signs of salvation for growing inflation
Unwelcoming swarms of this and that
Chinwags at stake albeit conspiracy and Watergate
Patty Hearst most wanted but not wanting
Where’s Jimmy Hoffa tops the most haunting
Defined success Bill Gates and Microsoft
He and Paul Allen have smarts in their loft
Wars, famine, and oil brings our blood to a boil
Our souls they toil yet don’t own the soil
Ideas in the destination but blanketed by foil
But mounds of zounds! We got our sounds!
Musical marvels never let us down
Elton and, Lucy in the sky, are the talk of the town
Diamonds fall like rain onto the palsy-walsy ground
I want to live on Disney’s Space Mountain
Coins of gold and my youth harbored in a fountain
Yep, all that goes on will keep us strong
What’s right is right and what’s wrong is wrong
Life’s lemons in our tea will keep us alive
And hopefully, survive nineteen seventy-five
