Well there used to be a time when a man was a king
To work for a man was a woman's only dream
Everything he did was perfectly alright
He didn't have to worry about fussin' and fightin'


It Don't Happen No More
That was a long time ago
It's a pitiful shame
How the world has changed


There used to be a time when a woman couldn't smoke
There used to be a time when a woman couldn't vote
She used to stay at home while the man went out to play
She was satisfied with life any old way


It Don't Happen No More
That was a long time ago
It's a pitiful shame
How the world has changed
Well, well


There used to be a time when a woman couldn't cook
There used to be a time she didn't worry about her looks
She used to sip on Sassafrass, she didn't even drink
She didn't try to tell her man how to think


It Don't Happen No More
That was a long time ago
It's a pitiful shame
How the world has changed
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah


It Don't Happen No More
That was a long time ago
It's a pitiful shame
How the world has changed


It Don't Happen No More
That was a long time ago
It's a pitiful shame
How the world has changed
