lyrics

BACK IN THE DAYS
BEFORE YOU COULD SAY BACK IN THE DAY
BECAUSE YOUR DAY WAS JUST BEGINING
I WAS A LITTLE BOY HIP-HOP
ON THE BLOCK;
NAW PSYCHE: I WAS INSIDE
READING COMICS ALL NIGHT
Y'KNOW THE X-MEN
JOHN BYRNE'S NEXT MEN
AND IN THE TENTH GRADE
I GOT MY FIRST GIRLFRIEND
SHE WAS A FAT THING
BUT I LOVED HER MORE THAN ANYTHING ELSE
IN THIS WHOLE WIDE WORLD
WE TOOK TRIPS TO THE SHOPPING MALL
CONTEMPO CASUAL
WHEN SHE WAS DONE WE'D HIT THE GROUND ROUND
TO BUST A GRUB
THIS WAS PUPPY LOVE, NEW LOVE,
HEY ME AND YOU GIRLFRIEND WE FIT LIKE A GLOVE
THIS WAS HIGHSCHOOL LOVE
HOLDING HANDS ON THE BUS
YUP, MY FIRST CRUSH
AND MY FIRST BREAKUP
I THOUGHT MY HEART WOULD BUST
BUT IT DIDN'T THOUGH
CUZ I REALIZED THERE'S SO MANY FISH IN THE SEA COME AND DROWN WITH ME!

BUBBLE GUM GOES POP
RECORDS PLAYING NON-STOP
BIZ MARKIE BUMPING FROM THE SPEAKERS
IN MY BROTHERS ROOM
HE USED TO BEAT ME UP
AND SAY I NEED ADJUSTING TO MY ATTITUDE
AND HE'S THE ONE TO GIVE IT TO ME
I USED TO RUN AND TELL MY MOM:
"MOM! DAVE HIT ME AGAIN!"
SHE'S LIKE DAVE:
"DON'T PUNCH YOUR YOUNGER BROTHER!"
HE'S LOOKING AT ME LIKE:
"YOU LITTLE MOTHERFUCKER! IMA GET YOU NEXT TIME
AND NEXT TIME, IMA HIT THAT ASS HARDER!"
THIS WAS CHILDHOOD PERIL
BUT SOMETIMES, SOMETHINGS, SOMETIMES
YOU GOTTA LEARN THE HARD WAY AND THAT'S OKAY,
IT'S JUST A PART OF LIFE
NOW I LOOK BACK WITH A LAUGH
BECAUSE I CAN KICK MY OLDER BROTHERS ASS, AND IT GOES:
