We were born to mothers who smoked and drank 

Our cribs were covered in lead based paint

No child proof lids, no seat belts in cars

Rode bikes with no helmets and still here we are, still here we are
We got daddy's belt when we misbehaved

Had three TV channels you got up to change

No video games and no satellite

All we had were friends and they were outside, playin' outside

It was a different life

When we were boys and girls

Not just a different time

It was a different world

School always started the same every day

The pledge of allegiance then someone would pray

Not every kid made the team when they tried

We got disappointed and that was all right, we turned out all right
It was a different life

When we were boys and girls

Not just a different time

It was a different world
No bottled water, we drank from a garden hose

And every Sunday, all the stores were closed


It was a different life

When we were boys and girls

Not just a different time

It was a different world
It was a different life

When we were boys and girls

Not just a different time

It was a different worldIt was a different world

 I was raised in that different time and wish my kids could have been too. But then again I grew up in Brooklyn and my kids live in suburbia.

I was raised in a different time and it was a blast. Yes, I got my ass whooped when I was bad, and yes bad things did happen to me. But that's life. People need to get over it!!

I face reality and do not romanticize earlier times. It's human nature to soften the past. It's how we survive. There were secrets back then, there were crimes and horrific events but, they weren't talked about. Yes, they were different times when we were boys and girls. Let's not romanticize a time when everything was hush hush.
