Once we won the Series, took it going away 
Once we sat on top of the NFL and the NBA 
But all that's over now, time went and slammed the door 
And even I packed up and left the city of Baltimore 

You know, the older we get the more we stay the same 
I just found out my radio can pick up the Oriole games
I tune in every half-an-hour to get the score 
And remember the day's when I was growing up in Baltimore 

Back then I lived in a house, not a one-room flat 
I didn't have to work or buy food or do anything like that 
And the first girl that I ever loved lived right next door 
At night I'd take my dad's car and drive around Baltimore 

 Something tells me this picture isn't right 
Like I'm forgetting how I smashed my dad's car driving stoned one 
How my parents fought, how I never even dated the girl next door 

How I was just a lonely mixed-up kid in Baltimore 
 Looking back now, you know I do believe 
When I lived in Baltimore, I couldn't wait to leave 
Go somewhere else and get a brand-new start 

Now I'm dressing up the past 'cause the present is falling apart 
The older we get the more we stay the same 
 Chasing after something that doesn't even have a name 
You know, we'll always trade what we've got for what we had before 

Everybody's a fool for something, I'm a fool for Baltimore
