i’m feeling rather old. anybody wish to share some memories of the good old days?


Babies Of The 80’s

Something Corporate

I grew up on Five-Alive

And Transformers and Slip-n-Slide

Toy’s R Us and Chuck-e-Cheeze

Disco out and techno in

to synthesize my favorite sin

And here I am on my knees

To get it back again

Babies of the 80’s

Little girls in lycra shorts

Tented beds, Nerf contact sports

My babies of the 80’s

Shout it out just one more time

For the generation that was all mine

We learned to crawl on linoleum floors

Ronald Regan fought Star Wars

But he’ll never be Han Solo

Students march Tienemen Square

They took him out hey that’s not fair

Dad said it’s good to be free

As we watched from our T.V.

Babies of the 80’s

Little girls in lycra shorts

Tented beds, Nerf contact sports

My babies of the 80’s

Shout it out just one more time

For the generation that was all mine

We watched the wall fall down

Woke up early for Bozo the clown

MTV and Nick at Night

And I slept for the first time

Without the light

without the light

without the light

(one, two. one, two, three, go)

My Babies of the 80’s

Little girls in jelly shoes

Got the Ferris Bueller blues

My babies of the 80’s

This could be something after

Who knew this could be something after?

Who knew this could be something after?

Who Knew?
