That's the first time I've been called an old timer! (although I did make a comment at work today that new university professors seem to be getting younger, so maybe you have a point).

What great music back then. You could actually understand the words and some of the songs even had good meanings. Boy, do I miss those days.

Hmmm...never heard of that one. I do know the band, though. "Lazy Days", "Like to Get to Know You", "Sunday Will Never Be The Same". Although Wikepedia says "Give a Damn" was a popular song, I guess it didn't carry through enough to be played on oldies stations like the other songs.

Give A Damn

If you'd take the train with me
Uptown, thru the misery
Of ghetto streets in morning light,
It's always night.
Take a window seat, put down your Times,
You can read between the lines,
Just meet the faces that you meet
Beyond the window's pane.

And it might begin to teach you
How to give a damn about your fellow man.
And it might begin to teach you
How to give a damn about your fellow man.

Or put your girl to sleep sometime
With rats instead of nursery rhymes,
With hunger and your other children
By her side,

And wonder if you'll share your bed
With something else which must be fed,
For fear may lie beside you
Or it may sleep down the hall.

[chorus]

Come and see how well despair
Is seasoned by the stif'ling air,
See your ghetto in the good old
Sizzling summertime.
Suppose the streets were all on fire
The flames like tempers leaping higher
Suppose you'd lived there all your life,

D'you think that you would mind?
And it might begin to reach you
Why I give a damn about my fellow man;
And it might begin to teach you
How to give a damn about your fellow man
