Different World
by Bucky Covington



We were born to mothers who smoked and drank
Our cribs were covered in lead based paint
No child proof lids, no seat belts in cars
Rode bikes with no helmets, and, still, here we are, still, here we are
We got daddy's belt when we misbehaved
Had three TV channels you got up to change
No video games and no satellite
All we had were friends, and they were outside, playin' outside

[Chorus:]
It was a different life
When we were boys and girls
Not just a different time
It was a different world

School always started the same every day
The pledge of allegiance, then someone would pray
Not every kid made the team when they tried
We got disappointed and that was all right; we turned out all right

[Chorus]

[Bridge]
No bottled water, we drank from a garden hose
And every Sunday all the stores were closed

[Chorus x 2]

It was a different world
