For the Better

Stonefield Road 70's

The streets are so much wider now
The tram cars are all gone
The sandstones lost the battle
To the supermarket spawn

Stonefield road was vibrant
The shops had cake and candy
You crossed the road to go a walk
And headed down the dandy

The public park gala day
Was a sight to behold
Logan Street, Elm Street
These were Streets of gold.

Regeneration, modernisation
The answer to it all
We took their word for gospel
As we watch our last school fall

This is for the better
They told our parents then
This is for the better
