Ode To Daria
by mizerychik

[To the tune of "Those Were The Days" with apologies to Lee Adams and Charles Strouse]

Boy, the way The Spiral played. Abstract art that Janey made.
Watching them, we had it made. Those were the days.

Daria wrote now and then, stories with her ballpoint pen.
Mister, we could use a man like DeMartino again.

Season breaks were way too long. Reruns kept us going strong.
I don't know just what went wrong. Those were the days.

Big fans seemed to be content. Watching Daria and Trent.
Wondering what their flirting meant. Those were the days.

Fashion fiends were always thin. Discussing what's out or in.
Quinn confirmed to them that Daria was really her kin.

Didn't need no Andy Dick. Tom Green doing stupid shtick.
Brian Graden is a prick. Those were the days.
