Lyrics

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

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 ev-er have to go

I wish those days could come back once more

Why did those days ev-er 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 hall

You grow up and learn that kinda thing ain't right

But while you were doing it-it sure felt outta sight

I wish those days could come back once more

Why did those days ev-er have to go

I wish those days could come back once more

Why did those days ev-er have to go
