  • I remember when I was so much younger
    Hanging outside with my brother
    Breathing on a Hypercolor shirt
    And watch it changing colour
    Friends that you had to find
    Couldn't get them all online
    In my room, I played guitar
    Only played Oasis and Nirvana

    Na-na-na-na-na-na
    Na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na
    Still takes me back to better days

    I miss the days of ditching school to watch The Goonies
    When cigarettes would cost me less than the movies
    And every day it slips away so far behind me
    God, I miss the nineties

    Those days are gone and I miss them so
    Good songs on the radio
    Rocking out to Smashing Pumpkins
    Black o White, Macaulay Culkin

    Na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na
    Na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na
    Still takes me back to better days

    I miss the days of after school at Roller City
    Now all we've got's the parking lot, it's such a pity
    And used to pray we'd meet one day, Kelly Kapowski
    God, I miss the nineties
    I'll always miss the nineties

    I miss the days of ditching school to watch The Goonies
    When cigarettes would cost me less than the movies
    And every day it slips away so far behind me
    God, I miss the nineties
    God, I miss the nineties
    I'll forever miss the nineties (oh!) Writer/s: Charles Robert Simpson, Dougie Lee Poynter, James Elliot Bourne, Matt Willis
