My Younger Day's

by HOLLY ARMER   May 12, 2005

Thinking back to my childhood days
My jelly shoes and pig tail braids

Playing Atari...Pac-Man and Centipede
Or racing my Big Wheel at breakneck speed

Strawberry Shortcake and Rainbow Brite
Cabbage Patch Kids or riding my bike

I loved the Shirt Tales and don\'t forget E.T.
The Smurf\'s were great, but not too much T.V.

Cause\' playing outside was always the best
He-Man or She-Ra, the ultimate test

Slinky, Lite Brite, and Rubik\'s Cube
Couldn\'t be bored with so much to do

An Easy Bake Oven, making a treat
The master of hula hoop, I couldn\'t be beat

As I got older, no more cartoons
Started watching Punky Brewster and Silver Spoons

New Kids On the Block and Tiffany
Opened a whole new world for me

Movies and skating took place of my toys
Make-up and hair, crushing on boys

Ice Ice Baby and Stop Hammertime
Milli Vanilli\'s lip syncing crime

Flirting and laughing all night on the phone
Finally able to stay at home all alone

Dances and parties, learning to drive
Just loving my youth and feeling alive

Prom came and went, graduation too
Had to decide what i should do

College wasn\'t appealing, decided to wait
Now ten years later, I feel it\'s too late

But I\'ve no regrets, I can honestly say
As I think back to my younger days

    Awwww. I Love It... Its So Timeless. I Mean-i'm From The Next Generation But i Can Still Get The Message of [No] Regrets-Who Can't? People Who Have Regrets Will Think 'I Wish I Didn't Do This' But If You Have No Regrets You Look Forward. To Vhange the Future.
