Amped Up 80s
We amped up the 80s with John Lennon,
Sent the first women into space
And we Don’t Stop Believin’.
Madonna starts her career
And we have no fear;
Not with our high-waisted jeans
And fishnet sleeves.
We watched Back to the Future
With Michael J. Fox
On boxy TVs wearing striped socks
We found the Titanic
And everyone went frantic
Finally, “The Simpsons” debuts,
A show of people with yellow hues.
