Their "logical song " is the reason I became a democrat
Does this album ever run out of hits? This is as good or better than most Greatest Hits albums.
One of the best albums of the century- breakfast in America
Oh calamity, is there no way out?
Love this song!
I agree that Supertramp was one of the better bands around, but so underrated, they were cool.
Wow, what a trip down memory lane.
Great harmonica. Easy to understand. Easy to sing along with. And wow what a great ending to a song.
Me too! I bought the album when I was 12.

Such nostalgia from the 80's...this is one of the few songs that take me back to my childhood

I dedicate this song to Kid C, who upon hearing it remarked “he has a high voice just like you, Daddy.”
Didn't it seen times were so easy then?
Whenever I'm driving back home, I like to take the long way so I can sing this song till it ends.
Love Supertramp
One of my favorites. Can't hear it enough.
This song is so great...lots of memories of my broken heart! :( I've always loved the waitress on the album cover...she' s so cute! :D
This Is Our Song He use to Be A truck Driver
such a classic...re a l l y brings back great memories!
I concur Victor
This song was great when I was a 16-yr old loser, even better at age 46!

When you look through the years and see what you could have been
Oh, what you might have been if you'd had more time

Thing is, we all have the same 24 hours to fill. So get 'er done!
This song is the story of my life!

too cool for school!

Great Song. My 3 year old loves this song.
That long pause before the song begins is a little annoying, unless it's just so quiet that I can't hear it. I otherwise love the song.

I used to kid saying that I taught him to play the harmonica that way.
I Absolutely love this song.
I always used to inject my own words to this song, while I was taking the long way home with Judith Eleanor Todd!!!
