Southern Drawl Band - When Kids Played Outside Lyrics


Summer days and old swimmin' holes
We had a boom box crankin' out rock 'n' roll.
Back when our little town was our whole world
And that banana seat took us where we wanted to go.

We played ball in our back yard,
Ran away a few times, but we never made it far.
We got cuts and scrapes and bruises and scars
And we were fightin' for our right to party hard.

We didn't have no internet.
Yeah, our "playstation" was an old swing set.
We got three channels our our TV set,
And man, they looked just fine
Back when kids played outside.
Outside.

We were goin' together but never went anywhere.
We'd stay out all day long, mom and dad didn't care.
We didn't have text, we just passed notes.
We had rings on our fingers, not in our nose.

Yeah our chat room was a local arcade
With a handful of quarters that would last all day.
And ADD was something we did in school,
No, we didn't need therapy to tell us we ruled.

We didn't have no internet.
Yeah, our "playstation" was an old swing set.
We traded record players for new tape decks
Man, it was great to be alive.
Back when kids played outside.
Outside.

Now we've all grown up, we've got kids of our own.
We give them facepods and ibooks, and camera phones.
Ain't no more tree houses or old skatin' rinks,
Ain't even music videos on MTV.

We take pills for everything, play indoor golf.
We got 500 channels, ain't a damn thing on.
Yeah we're livin' in the future.
Me, I'll take the past.
It's all too much, I just wanna go back to when.

We didn't have no internet.
Yeah, our "playstation" was an old swing set.
We didn't have to be politcally correct,
Yeah, and we turned out just fine

We used to go out cruisin' on Friday night
Used to use our fists if we got in a fight.
And Dad got the belt when we got out of line.
Man, it was great to be alive,
Back when kids played outside.
Outside.

Yeah, I wanna go back,
I just wanna go back.
I wanna go back,
I just wanna go back.
