1876 lyrics


In eighteen seventy-six
Cars were not invented.
They didn’t have the radio
Or movies or t.v.
And they had more diseases then
Which now can be prevented
But someone wrote a book that year
That still gets read by kids today like me.

In eighteen seventy-six
There wasn’t indoor plumbing
They didn’t have a ton of things
We take for granted now.
Though every year there seems to be
Some luxury that’s coming
A book like this from way back then
Is still around somehow.

I guess i used to think
That books were only words on paper
But when i’m reading this
It’s like tom sawyer’s really here.

When things are written down
They don’t just disappear like vapor.
They travel on through time
Beyond that one specific year.

And i think writing stuff like that
Would make a neat career.

In eighteen seventy-six
Some guy from missouri
Put all these adventures down
And made them come alive.
And just because that writer
Wrote this one amazing story
Eighteen seventy-six
Was so much better than
Eighteen seventy-five.
