WHEN WE WERE BOYS AND GIRLS…

 
WHEN WE WERE BOYS AND GIRLS…..


WE WERE BORN TO MOTHER’S WHO SMOKED AND DRINKED
OUR CRIBS WERE COVERED WITH LED BASED PAINT
NO CHILD PROOF LIDS, NO SEAT BELTS IN CARS
‘RODE BIKES WITH NO HELMETS AND STILL HERE WE ARE !


WE GOT DADDIES BELT, WHEN WE MISBEHAVED
‘HAD 3 TV CHANNELS YOU GOT UP TO CHANGE,
NO VIDEO GAMES AND NO SATELLITE.
ALL WE HAD WERE FRIENDS AND THEY WERE OUTSIDE,
WE ALWAYS PLAYED OUTSIDE.


SCHOOL ALWAYS STARTED THE SAME WAY EVERY DAY
THE PLEDGE TO OUR COUNTRY AND SOMEONE WOULD PRAY,
NOT EVERYONE MADE THE TEAM WHEN THEY TRIED,
WE GOT DISAPPOINTED BUT THAT WAS ALRIGHT, 
WE TURNED OUT ALL RIGHT.


WE DIDN’T HAVE BOTTLED WATER,
WE DRANK FROM THE GARDEN HOSE
AND EVERY SUNDAY’S
ALL THE STORES WERE CLOSED.


IT WAS A DIFFERENT LIFE WHEN WE WERE BOYS AND GIRLS
NOT JUST A DIFFERENT TIME,
IT WAS A DIFFERENT WORLD.
THANKS TO B. COVINGTON
