Man: Naw, Girl I Wanna go way back Check This Out
(Teddy Pendergrass' "Turn off the lights" starts)
Chorus: Back In the days when I was young Im not a kid anymore but somedays I Sit and wish I was A Kid Again Back In the days.....
Royce Da 5 9
Back in the days when I was just a little niggero I looked up to my bigger bro begged if I could kick it So when he when out with girls I could go taggin along naggin If she had a sis I could mack a baby hoodrat Yall remember way back then when it was 1985 all the way live I think I was about ten One of those happy little niggas singin the blues That be always tryna bag with the shag and karate shoes Sayin yo momma black his momma this his momma that Then he'd get mad and wanna scrap we'd stay mad about 10 minutes then its like back on the bike to play Hide and Go Get It With the younger hoes by the bungalos then switch to playin ding dong ditch When that gets old and too cold to hack it Throw on a bomber jacket You could tell the ballas 'cause they bailed wearin Gazelles If they really had money raised we sportin new K's And all the girls had they turkish link If it broke then they made earrings too Like they meant to do it But sometimes I still sit and reminiese and Think about the years I was raised back in the days

(Verse II) Im still back in the days but now the year is 87, 88 thats When my crew and I were in Jr. High in 7th grade I hated school (Wished it had blown up) No doubt I couldnt wait to get out (And be a grown up) But let me finish this reminiscin and tellin Bout when girls was bailin tight courderoys like For the boys basket weaves, Nike, Cortez, and Footsie Socks And eatin pickles with Toosie Pops and it dont stop Im glad 'cause when J.J. fad that Supersonic It was kinda like a sport, to wear biker shorts Or, to wear jeans and it seemed like the masses of hoochies had Poison airbrushed on they asses Dudes had on Nike suits and the Pumas with the fat laces 'cause it was either that or K-Swiss I miss those days and so I pout like a grown jerk Wishin all I had to do now was finish homework Its true you dont real-a-lize really what you got til its gone And Im not gonna sing anotha sad song But sometimes I do sit and reminisce then Think about the years I was raised Back In The Day

(Verse III) Well, its the niggero I figga that now Im all grown up Be'cause Im 18 years old and guess you could say Im holdin down A steady job, true steady mobbin, you steady bobbin your head And Im paid so I got it made but Didnt always have clout useta live in South Central L.A. thats where I stayed and figured a way out I gave it all I had so for what its worth I went from rags to riches which is a drag but now Im first so (??? is on our way up) Yup, we said that we was gonna make it since a kid and we finally did but Sometimes I still sit and reminisce then Think about the years I was raised Back in the days
