I miss back when

March 12, 2022

Don’t you remember
The fizz in a pepper
Peanuts in a bottle
At ten, two and four
A fried bologna sandwich
With mayo and tomato
Sittin’ round the table
Don’t happen much anymore

We got too complicated
It’s all way over-rated
I like the old and out-dated
Way of life

Back when a hoe was a hoe
Coke was a coke
And crack’s what you were doing
When you were cracking jokes
Back when a screw was a screw
The wind was all that blew
And when you said I’m down with that
Well it meant you had the flu
I miss back when
I miss back when
I miss back when


I love my records
Black, shiny vinyl
Clicks and pops

And white noise
Man they sounded fine
I had my favorite stations
The ones that played them all
Country, soul and rock-and-roll
What happened to those times?

I’m readin’ ‘Street Slang For Dummies’
‘Cause they put pop in my country
I want more for my money
The way it was back then

Back when a hoe was a hoe
Coke was a coke
And crack’s what you were doing
When you were cracking jokes
Back when a screw was a screw
The wind was all that blew
And when you said I’m down with that
Well it meant you had the flu
I miss back when
I miss back when
I miss back when


Give me a flat top for strumming
I want the whole world to be humming
Just keep it coming
The way it was back then

Back when a hoe was a hoe
Coke was a coke
And crack’s what you were doing
When you were cracking jokes
Back when a screw was a screw
The wind was all that blew
And when you said I’m down with that
Well it meant you had the flu
I miss back when
I miss back when
I miss back when

I sure do miss the old days…there’s no going back, is there? I honestly couldn’t tell you the last time I drank a Coke, probably when I was a kid. I’m not kidding! When I drink soda, I stick to root beer or birch beer for the most part. My son couldn’t drink Coke as a child – it made him super-hyper. Now, that Coke has gone woke (be less white?), my son won’t drink Coke products. We do drink Sprite, but that’s a compromise when the establishment sells only Coke products.

I just wanted to share this song with you…it’s been playing on loop in my brain for a couple of days now.

hope you have a great day!
thanks for stopping by!!
