lyrics

Verse 1:

I remember mom's home cookin', lasagna stuffed shells
cheesecake dessert, I remember so well...
Breakfast in the a.m. I remember the smell
Every morning 7:30 watchin' Saved By The Bell

I remember when my toys were my joy, just a little boy
with a ploy to annoy his older sister,
"Mom! Kristina won't let me change the channel!"
Thinkin' back we was such a handful,

Hands full of grains out the sandbox, she would chase me through
the yard then we'd go and watch The Sandlot, ya better believe
"FOR-RE-VER." was our favorite quote for days, I'm
amazed that we ever moved to any other phrase!

And I can't forget our Sundays, church every week, we would
sneak into the kitchen and find something to eat,
It's amazing how the time goes by, her and I
reminiscing in the kitchen last night sayin'

Chorus:

Do you remember when?
Remember good guys and villians?
When we were innocent little children...
Remember when we was boys and girls without a care in the world?

Do you remember when?
Remember climbin' trees and hiding?
When every single toy was a diamond...
Remember when the clock it ticked so slow? Where did it go?

Verse 2:

I remember all the innocence, way before the world's
ignorance came and fed me vulgar images, all them
intimate instances, incidents of fallin' of my bike,
and mom's kiss was infamous... But then the

innocence it fades right? We get bigger...
We think we know what's best for ourselves, go figure.
"Get the whole world, not a sliver." And while you're at it,
go ahead and wreck your liver, "Mr. One of a Kind"

is who you're supposed to be TEEJ, but when you
lookin' in the mirror, is this who you hope to see?
'Cause see most of me was broken peace all because a
man came and touched me inappropriately!

And after that day, I lived life for me, I was
lookin' out for number 1, ignoring 2 and 3,
but see so it seems that's the way that it goes, I was
walkin' down a road barefeet in the snow

It felt so cold! Man, I'll never forget, that
night up in my dorm room, the weight of regret
reflecting on my past, for forgiveness I prayed,
I said, "God! What happened to them good ol' days?! Do You remember when?!"

Chorus:

Do you remember when?
Remember good guys and villians?
When we were innocent little children...
Remember when we was boys and girls without a care in the world?

Do you remember when?
Remember climbin' trees and hiding?
When every single toy was a diamond...
Remember when the clock it ticked so slow? Where did it go?
