Down the Drain lyrics

Down, down, down, down, down
Down, down, down

The sweetest things in life
Don't stay around for very long
They come and go and don't come back again
While they're here, you feel so smug
That's when fate pulls out the plug
And the sweetest things in life go down the drain

What has happened to galoshes?
Down the drain
Where's the Czar of all the Russia?
Down the drain

And the five-cent candy bar
And the good old Edsel car?
(Gone where all the swell things are)

Down the drain
(Right down the drain)
Down the drain
(Gone down the drain)

Where are telephone prefixes?
Down the drain
They've all gone to where Tom Mix is
Down the drain

Where's those grand old Gold Dust Twins?
(All those German zeppelins?)
Boys who set up bowling pins?

Down the drain
(Right down the drain)
Down the drain
(Gone down the drain)

Suppose we made a fuss
About the double-decker bus?
Do you suppose they'd bring it back again?
Fountain pens that use real ink
Coins that don't go clunk but clink
The things we love are sinking down the drain

Where are all those kamikazes?
Down the drain
And the Hotel Savoy Plaza's
Down the drain

Where's the New York World's fair?
Just last year I saw it there
(In the heart of flushing)

Down the drain
(Right down)

Flushing down the drain
(Right down the drain)
(Flushing down the drain)
