This all this was in the olden Time long ago.
In olden days a glimpse of stocking Was looked on as something shocking. But now,God knows, Anything goes.Cole Porter
Spake full well, in language quaint and olden, One who dwelleth by the castled Rhine, When he called the flowers, so blue and golden, Stars, that in earth's firmament do shine.Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
In olden days a glimpse of stocking Was looked on as something shocking But now, Heaven knows , Anything goes.Cole Porter
Blood hath been shed ere now i' the olden time, Ere humane statute purg'd the gentle weal; Ay, and since too, murders have been perform'd Too terrible for the ear: the time has been, That, when the brains were out, the man would die, And there an end; but now they rise again, With twenty mortal murders on their crowns, And push us from our stools: this is more strange Than such a murder is.
