    "Simple Days" Lyrics


    I was born on the northside of a
    Midwestern town
    There was nine of us living in a
    Three bedroom house

    Didn't have much money, but we made do
    'Cause Momma worked all day long
    And daddy did too
    Did all they could

    Made sure we had clothes and food
    Went to public schools and we

    Followed public rules
    We used second hand books, but oh

    I didn't mind the books
    Momma taught us early in life, everybody's gotta
    Struggle sometime

    Bring back those simple times of yesterday
    When a man was a man
    And a friend was a friend
    Bring back those simple times of yesterday
    When you said what you meant
    And you menat what you said

    Had a friend named Bobby
    Who always kept his word
    We went through schoolyard fights

    Had a thing for pretty girls

    Didn't cost much money to
    See the picture show
    So we hopped the bus into town
    That's where all the girlies used to go

    Fifty cents would buy us popcorn for two
    'Cause Bobby's girl, she worked there and
    Sometimes she's break the rules
    Picnics in the summer

    Wouldn't wake up 'till noon
    And even though Bobby's gone now
    I can still hear him laugh
    In the middle of June


    Sometimes I sit, I wonder
    I reminisce, I think of all the good times
    That we had in our lives
    Sometimes I can't get over

    How wonderful those days were
    Back in our lives
    Simple days for simple times
