KIDS OF THE BABY BOOM
The Bellamy Brothers


Our daddys won the war and came home to our moms
They gave them so much love that all us kids were born
We all grew up on Mickey Mouse and hula-hoops
Then we all bought BMW's and brand new pickup trucks
And we watched John Kennedy die one afternoon
Kids of the baby boom

It was a time of new prosperity in the USA
All the fortunate offsprings never had to pay
We had sympathy for the devil and the Rolling Stones
Then we got a little older, we found Haggard and Jones
A generation screaming for more room
Kids of the baby boom

Kids of the baby boom, we had freedom, we had money
Baby boom, here in the land of milk and honey
Counting our chickens way too soon
Kids of the baby boom

Now we all can run computers and we all can dance
We all have Calvin Klein written on our underpants
And at six-o'clock, like robots, we turn on the news
Watch those third world countries deal out more abuse
Remember the first man on the moon

Kids of the baby boom

Kids of the baby boom, we had freedom, we had money
Baby boom, here in the land of milk and honey
Counting our chickens way too soon
Kids of the baby boom

As our lives become a capsule they send to the stars
And our children look at us like we came from Mars
As the farms disappear and the sky turns black
We're a nation full of takers, never giving back
We never stop to think what we consume
Kids of the baby boom

Kids of the baby boom, we had freedom, we had money
Baby boom, here in the land of milk and honey
Cuonting our chickens way too soon
Kids of the baby boom

Our optimism mingles with the doom
Kids of the baby boom

I think that, during the year without pictures, many people emigrated to other social sites.

Responding to Pilotkid:

I think many burned out on the politics and having the site hijacked by a handful that refused to give it a rest. CNN.com is the place for that.

Many who formerly contributed here, have moved to Facebook, where you can choose your "friends" individually and keep content directed to BBI happenings. Lots of current BBI photos posted there.

I had a FB account for a while but closed it due to virus and privacy concerns.

So... that's where Conis went.

Facebook could never replace this site ...I would like us to start sharing again here, I miss everyone .. It does not have to be all island related either..
Thats my thoughts ...

I agree with you theeislandgirl.

We should be able to chat about everything, as far as we do not call names, insult or whatever. Nice to read others opinions on many things. Politics, island news, etc. About life in general.

This has become very dead.

Also it would be nice to view new pics too. Not necessary a contest, just new pixs.

Squeaky ..
Thanks for your support I feel just as you do !

When we are on the island we just do not talk about island things .we are normal folk and talk about what comes to mind .. and that could be about anything ..

I would love to get going again and start sharing ..there's sure alot of things we do need to share about to help us all to get along in this world as it is today ...

Have a very happy christmas to you and all the island lovers ......
