Back in the Days
by Shaggy



Straight outta Flatbush
Always tek it back
(Whoa oh)
Fi yuh peeps
(Whoa whoa whoa oh)
Don't worry about it, it's been brought up

'Cause you never know what your gonna turn out to be
(No oh ooh ooh)
Life has it's funny twist and turns yuh nah mean
(Yay yay)

Back in the days, tried and failed but look at me now
How, things have changed, had no friends but look at me now
It, seems so strange, no one cared but look at me now
Fortune and fame, who would guess but look at me now

Friends, spend nuh time wid dem
I was the kid who never follow many trends
Used to wear the glasses with the soda bottle lens
Girls didn't like me and a few would just pretend

It's funny back in school the guys that were so cool
Are the very ones who wish them could a be walkin' inna mi shoes
Now tell me whose the fool, them never have a clue
That's why I'm here to dedicate this song to all of you, hey hey

Back in the days tried and failed but look at me now
(The days)
How, things have changed had no friends but look at me now
(How things changed)
It, seems so strange no one cared but look at me now
(So strange)
Fortune and fame who would guess but look at me now
(Ooh wee)

I, never realized
I could make reality di tings I fantasize
Stuck to my plan and to everyone surprised
Even those who doubt a stand before mi mesmerized

I bloom delay a late, I couldn't get an eight
Di cheerleadin' chicks grew up to all be overweight
See now I lookin' greta, I wonda what they ate
To that I'm really happy wid my supermodel date, hey hey

Back in the days tried and failed but look at me now
(I know)
How, things have changed had no friends but look at me now
(Shooby dooby doo, yeah)
It, seems so strange no one cared but look at me now
(I know, I know)
Fortune and fame who would guess but look at me now
(No no)

If you think you got it figured out well listen to me
Don't ever underestimate what people can be
Now whose the one that's most likely to succeed
It's usually the one's you don't see, hey

If you think you got it figured out well listen to me
Don't ever underestimate what people can be
Now whose the one that's most likely to succeed
It's usually the one's you don't see, come again

Back in the days tried and failed but look at me now
(Back in the days)
How, things have changed had no friends but look at me now
(How things have changed)
It, seems so strange no one cared but look at me now
(So strange)
Fortune and fame who would guess but look at me now
(Oh)

Back in the days tried and failed but look at me now
(Back in the days)
How, things have changed had no friends but look at me now
(How things have changed)
It, seems so strange no one cared but look at me now
(So strange, hey)
Fortune and fame, who would guess but look at me now

Ooh, back in the days
How things have changed, said a rearranged, hey
Back in the days
How things have changed, How things have turned, oh
