Looking back on when I
Was a little nappy headed boy
Then my only worry Was for Christmas what would be my toy
Even though we sometimes Would not get a thing We were happy with the
Joy the day would bring Sneaking out the back door
To hang out with those hoodlum friends of mine Greeted at the back door
But thought I told you not to go outside Tryin' your best to bring the Water to your eyes
Thinkin' it might stop her
From woopin' your behind I wish those days could come back once more
Why did those days ever have to go
I wish those days could come back once more
Why did those days ever have to go
'Cause I love them so Brother says he's tellin'
'Bout you playin' doctor with that girl
Just don't tell I'll give you Anything you want in this whole wide world Mama gives you money for Sunday school
You trade yours for candy after church is through Smokin' cigarettes and writing something nasty on the wall (you nasty boy) Teacher sends you to the principal's office down the wall
You grow up and learn that kinda thing ain't right But while you were doin'it-it sure felt outta sight
I wish those days could come back once more
Why did those days ever have to go
I wish those days could come back once more
Why did those days ever have to go
