10,006 BC-ish:
Ag mush, ag mush, ag mush, ag mush,
Ag mush, ag mush, ag mush, ag mush, ag mush, ag mush,
Ag dikko mumu gush
Ag dikko mumu gush

1606-ish:
My love hath vowd hee will forsake mee,
And I am alreadie sped.
Far other promise he did make me
When he had my maidenhead.
If such danger be in playing,
And sport must to earnest turne,
I will go no more a-maying.

That heart is neerest to misfortune
That will trust a feigned tongue,
When flattring men our loves importune,
They entend us deepest wrong,
If this shame of loves betraying
But this once I cleanely shun,
I will go no more a-maying.

1706-ish:
We all shall lead more happy lives
By getting rid of brats and wives
That scold and bawl both night and day -
Over the Hills and far away.
Over the Hills and O'er the Main,
To Flanders, Portugal and Spain,
The queen commands and we'll obey
Over the Hills and far away.

1806-ish:
I wished we were united yet
And I could husband call you!
A girl may never what she thinks,
Tell anyone aloud.
But when I never have to blush
From kisses of a loving heart,
When nothing ever will us part -
And hope already swells my chest
With untold sweet desire,
How happy shall I be then!
In peace and quiet homeliness
I'll wake up every morning,
We greet each other tenderly,
Hard work dispels anxiety.
And when the day's work has been done,
The gentle night will quietly fall,
Then we shall rest from all our toil.
And hope already swells my chest
With untold sweet desire,
How happy shall I be then!

1906-ish:
I'm a cranky hanky panky,
I'm a dead square honest Yankee,
And I'm mighty proud of that old flag
That flies for Uncle Sam.
Though I don't believe in raving
Ev'ry time I see it waving,
There's a chill runs up my back
That makes me glad I'm what I am.
Here's a land with a million soldiers,
That's if we should need 'em,
We'll fight for freedom!
Hurrah! Hurrah! For ev'ry Yankee tar
And old G.A.R.,
Ev'ry stripe, ev'ry star.
Red, White and Blue,
Hats off to you,
Honest, you're a grand old flag.

2006-ish:
My hump, my hump, my hump, my hump,
My hump, my hump, my hump, my hump, my hump, my hump.
My lovely lady lumps
My lovely lady lumps

I just about fell out of my chair laughing when I finished reading this. :)

Seriously, kids today probably just can't appreciate lyrics like "I'm a cranky hanky panky."
