Lyrics for When The Leafs Were Good


In the Fall, the leaves start to tumble. (these two lines recitation)
In the Spring, the Leafs start to fall.

In the days when Johnnie Bower was the hero of the hour
And a beer cost less than a buck...
When the Gardens was a place bathed in smiles on every face
And when "Go Leafs!" was a shout to shoot the puck.
Those were the days when the Maple Leaf was ruling;
When the art of winning was understood.
Way back when when the Earth was cooling.
Way back when when the Leafs were good.
When "Clear the track!" meant make way for Eddie Shack,
And Tim Horton's name spelt trouble
For attackers who in hoards were flattened on the boards.
Now it's Timbits or it's double-double-double.
Those were the days etc,
Where is Keon? Where is Frank?
Where is Kelly? Where is Blank?
All forgotten... well, almost
Every Saturday ghost to ghost.

We should have taken Ballard and tossed him like a salad
For the crimes done to our team;
Since when we've screamed in vain for the Leafs to rise again
And so transform our nightmare to a dream.
Those were the days etc.
