Things Ain’t What They Used To Be

1942 – Mercer Ellington / Ted Persons

Got so weary of bein’ nothin’
Felt so dreary just doin’ nothin’
Didn’t care ever gettin’ nothin’, felt so low
Now my eyes on the far horizon can see a glow
Announcin’ things ain’t what they used to be
No use bein’ a doubtin’ Thomas
No ignorin’ that rosy promise
Now I know there’s a happy story yet to come
It’s the dawn of a day of glory: millennium
I tell you things ain’t what they used to be
