When a Cadillac Was Distinctive

When a Cadillac Was Distinctive

 

By Elton Camp



I well remember the time way back in the day

A Cadillac meant things were going your way

Confuse it with lesser cars?  Nope, no chance

A Caddy was recognizable with just a glance



Any who drove one had to be rolling in dough

Because they cost eight thousand bucks or so

In those luxury cars, nothing manual was done

Automatic windows, antenna and trunk were fun



Low gas mileage was simply no concern at all

At a six-dollar fill-up the wealthy didn’t squall

A Cadillac demonstrated one’s status in life

That he had risen above all the ordinary strife



Of course, Cadillac on the market does remain

Now the truly wealthy would laugh with disdain

Because what was once the finest car in the city

Is now only ordinary—and isn’t that such a pity
