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
The joy the day would bring

Sneaking out the back door
To hang out with those hoodlum friends of mine, oh
Greeted at the back door with
"Boy, 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
Teacher sends you to the principal's office down the hall
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?
'Cause I love them so
