  • Tommy's selling used cars, Nancy's fixing hair
    Harvey runs a grocery store and Margaret doesn't care
    Jerry drives a truck for Sears and Charlotte's on the make
    And Paul sells life insurance and part time real estate

    Helen is a hostess, Frank works at the mill
    Janet teaches grade school and prob'ly always will
    Bob works for the city and Jack's in lab research
    And Peggy plays organ at the Presbyterian Church

    And the class of '57 had it's dreams
    Oh We all thought we'd change the world with our great works and deeds
    Or maybe we just thought the world would change to fit our needs
    The class of '57 had dreams

    Betty runs a trailer park, Jan sells Tupperware
    Randy's on an insane ward and Mary's on welfare
    Charlie took a job with Ford and Joe took Freddie's wife
    Charlotte took a millionaire and Freddie took his life.

    John is big in cattle, Ray is deep in debt
    Where Marvis finally would up is anybody's bet
    Linda married Sonny, Brenda married me
    And the class of all of us is just a part of history

    And the class of '57 had it's dreams
    But living life day to day is never like it seems
    Things get complicated when you get past eighteen
    But the class of '57 had its dreams
    Oh the class of '57 had dreams
