Take seat youngin'; Stay around for spell I got a little story that I wanted to tell Would ya Please stick around, take a listen and see Cause back in my day, things were always grand as can be
Now all the Streets were paved gold and gems; Glimmerin' Lightin' up the skies at noon; This town is shimmerin' Waitin' on nobody cause we got stuff to do Cause we through with the new We're talking old school, kids, that's just what we do!
Back in the day, it was the prime of the time Imagine all the greats singing together in rhymes and listening together on old Gramaphones and old Radios it was a hell of a time
Let me tell ya youngin', man the old days were grand You could walk down to the beach and plant your hooves in the sand You didn't have no worries All was grand as can be So everybody take a listen Open your eyes and see
So trot with me through the autumn leaves And keep close to stay warm Soon you'll see how much you mean to me Feelings I've never felt before
Skippi-do-bop was the name of the game Swinging like crazy everyone goes insane It's like a game except everyone wins Why isn't music like that, anymore?
My god everything is such a bore now Everything's the same thing over again With all that hippin' and the hoppin' and the bippen' and the boppen' They dunno what the jazz is all about, you see
You'll look back at your days I'm sure you'll experience it sometime cause when you grow old everything seems cold and new generation will arrive
This is probably the happiest song I ever written, and I loved making it very much :)
