I'm talkin' bout hide and go seek at dusk.
Sittin' on the porch,
Hot bread and butter.
The ice cream man,
Red light, Green light....One, two, three. Simon Says, Whist, Old Maid & Crazy Eights.
Chocolate milk, Pretzels & Lunch tickets, Lunch boxes with a thermos. Going home for lunch.
Penny candy in a brown paper bag.
Hopscotch, butterscotch, doubledutch. Skates with keys,
Jacks, kickball, dodgeball, y'all!
Mother May I?
Hula Hoops and Sunflower Seeds,
Jolly Ranchers, blowpops, Mary Janes, wax lips & mustaches.
Grape and Watermelon Now-Laters, "lemonheads", Saddle shoes, circle pins, bobby pins.
Running through the sprinkler (I can't get wet! All right, well don't wet my hair....)
The smell of the sun and lickin' salty lips....
Watchin' Saturday Morning cartoons (Fat Albert, Road Runner, and Bugs) Let's not forget "Wonder-rama", The Mickey Mouse Club, Rocky & Bullwinkle, Fran & Ollie, Spin & Marty.
Catchin' lightening bugs in a jar, Backyard shows, staring at the clouds, walking to church, Playin' sling shot. Not stepping on a crack for fear of breaking your mother's back.
When around the corner seemed far away, And going downtown seemed like going somewhere. The Stroll, The Twist & The Lindy. The Cabbage Patch,The Wabo & The Wop.
A million mosquito bites and sticky fingers,
Cops and Robbers,
Cowboys and Indians,
Sittin on the curb,
Jumpin down the steps,
Jumpin on the bed.
Being tickled to death
Runnin' till you were out of breath
Laughing so hard that your stomach hurt
Being tired from playin'.... Remember that?
I ain't finished just yet...
Crowding around in a circle around the 'after school fight', then running when the teacher came.
What about the girl that had the big bubbly hand writing??
Eating Kool-aid powder with sugar - didn't that feel good..
just to go back and say, Yeah, I remember that!
There's nothing like the good old days! They were good then, and
they're good now when we think about them.
