  • Let the kid's sing

    Back in the days when I was young, I'm not a kid anymore
    But some days I sit and wish I was a kid again
    Back in the days when I was young, I'm not a kid anymore
    But some days I sit and wish I was a kid again

    Uh huh
    Thinking back when things were so easy
    Got me laughing out loud, for no reason
    I use to take them cans back and collect them nickels
    Trading garbage pail kid cards for sweet pickles
    The whole block used to have G.I. Joe battles
    Yeah yer boy had the original storm shadow
    And as of lately things have been slow
    So I reminisce on when we use to break them windows
    Yeah, Til I got snatched by the cops
    With a wiffle ball bat and a hand full of rocks (Wasn't me)
    Consider this song a throw back
    Cause all I wanna do is go back
    Y'all sing it with me

    Back in the days when I was young, I'm not a kid anymore
    But some days I sit and wish I was a kid again
    Back in the days when I was young, I'm not a kid anymore
    But some days I sit and wish I was a kid again
    Back in the days when I was young, I'm not a kid anymore
    But some days I sit and wish I was a kid again
    Back in the days when I was young, I'm not a kid anymore
    But some days I sit and wish I was a kid again

    Tell em!
    And this was way before Playstation
    Rushing home to watch Video vibrations
    Man I tell you Sherry Carter coulda got the business
    And I cant forget Rachel from Caribbean rhythms
    This was back when Rap city used to play the jams
    This is how I first heard about the Wutang Clan
    Banged 36 chambers all summer long
    And to this day canopy's my favorite summer song
    And I can drop names for days
    Of all my favorite artists who helped to pave the way
    But, we probably need a lot more then just 4 minutes
    So this is how I'm gonna end it
    Everybody sing

    Back in the days when I was young, I'm not a kid anymore
    But some days I sit and wish I was a kid again
    Back in the days when I was young, I'm not a kid anymore
    But some days I sit and wish I was a kid again
    Back in the days when I was young, I'm not a kid anymore
    But some days I sit and wish I was a kid again
    Back in the days when I was young, I'm not a kid anymore
    But some days I sit and wish I was a kid again
    Back in the days when I was young, I'm not a kid anymore
    But some days I sit and wish I was a kid again

    Yeah, I'm on the bus in the back lounge
    Sweaty, cold confused in another unfamiliar town
    Another sold out show
    Spilling my soul to a ton of people I don't know
    And I can feel my skin wearing thinner
    4th night no appetite for dinner
    Shit goddamn well ain't life grand
    Getting paid to stand on stage with yer heart in yer hand
    Sometimes I squeeze it til they get worried
    If this is groundhogs day I guess I'm Bill Murray
    And I swear I'm not complaining at all
    I love each and everyone of y'all
    All I'm really sayin' is

    Back in the days when I was young, I'm not a kid anymore
    But some days I sit and wish I was a kid again
    Back in the days when I was young, I'm not a kid anymore (c'mon)
    But some days I sit and wish I was a kid again
    Back in the days when I was young, I'm not a kid anymore
    But some days I sit and wish I was a kid again
    Back in the days when I was young, I'm not a kid anymore
    But some days I sit and wish I was a kid again
    Back in the days when I was young, I'm not a kid anymore
    But some days I sit and wish I was a kid again
