[Verse 1]

When I was little, I would fiddle all around and solve a riddle

Got some Skittles, walk and wiggle, shoot some hoops and drop and dribble

Who’s the monkey in the middle? I was like a king at all the

Things I did when I was just a kid like it was always simple

N64 up in my room kept me satisfied

That Goldeneye to pass the time, you can work a paddle, right

Good, ready up then, cause we’re about to battle like

No one’s ever done and now it’s over, kid, you’re out of lives

How did I ever let myself lose sight of what just might have

Been the best times of my life like no kid inside of

Me lives on, geez, I’m wrong, let me get a little bite of

What it’s like to be grown up and see if I don’t be the kind of

Man that still wears his pajamas out in public

Gets excited over Hot Wheels, shop deals, and love it

King of the hill, I’m alway standing on the summit

Everybody grows up, but you can overcome it

 

[Chorus]

Let us go back to the good ol’ days

Back when we were still kids causing mayhem

Back to care free summers and the year long days

Back when life was prime, I just want to play, and

I said let us go back to the good ol’ days

Back when late at night, everybody stayed in

Back to popcorn and movies and the near gone days

Back when all was fine, can I get an amen

 

[Verse 2]

I recall the very first time I learned to ride a bike

With no training wheels or helping hand and it was kind of like

Flying with the birds in the sky, yeah, my mind was psyched

Not a single worry growing up came in my line of sight

I was alright and I was a beast at what I did

Competition done, there would always be some little kid

Saying they could never beat me, yeah, that part is hard, ’tard

Coolest kid up in my school, I had the Charizard card

Used to think I was a superhero, wore a mask and cape

Watching Superman and Batman made my powers activate

But dinner will be ready soon, so now this city has to wait

Thank the Lord for my meal then ask my mom to pass the plate

Brush my teeth then go to bed and let my dreams take me away

Into another world then let my imagination lead the way

I’d always pray upon the day my life and dreams would be the same

But whoever would have known that that day would be today

 

[Chorus]

Let us go back to the good ol’ days

Back when we were still kids causing mayhem

Back to care free summers and the year long days

Back when life was prime, I just want to play, and

I said let us go back to the good ol’ days

Back when late at night, everybody stayed in

Back to popcorn and movies and the near gone days

Back when all was fine, can I get an amen

 

[Verse 3]

Build a fort with pillows, grab some blankets, got to fill those

Little holes, but leave some openings so I can have some windows

Mom’s up in the kitchen baking snacks so now I got to steal those

Going backwards through my childhood, say my goodbyes and my hellos

I would kick back, watch my TV shows with Gushers and Fruit Roll-Ups

’Til my tongue was multicolored, hit the fridge and get some sodas

Dared to kiss the girl I liked, well tell the boys I just did

Had every single G.I. Joe, I was a Toys-R-Us kid

Water fights, rocking our swimsuits, Super Soakers, and balloons

It was war all summer long, we formed a base for our platoons

Until winter came along and then the snowball fights were then a

Major deal aside from Christmas, always waiting up for Santa

 

[Chorus]

Let us go back to the good ol’ days

Back when we were still kids causing mayhem

Back to care free summers and the year long days

Back when life was prime, I just want to play, and

I said let us go back to the good ol’ days

Back when late at night, everybody stayed in

Back to popcorn and movies and the near gone days

Back when all was fine, can I get an amen
