"I Wish"

Lookin' 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, I thought I told you not to go outside"
Tryin' your best to bring the
Water to your eyes
Thinkin' it might stop her
From whoopin' 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
I love them so

My brother says he's tellin'
About 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 wall
You grow up and learn
That kinda thing ain't right
But while you were doin' it
You were doin it, 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?
