Mindless Drivel
Read at your own detriment…

We’ve gotten soft…

ok it’s totally lame to quote song lyrics… I KNOW…but this song is everything I love about small town USA and incites vicarious nostalgia since most of this was true far before I was born sadly…

Bucky CovingtonA Different World

We were born to mothers who smoked and drank
Our cribs were covered in lead based paint
No child proof lids no seat belts in cars
Rode bikes with no helmets and still here we are, still here we are
We got daddy’s belt when we misbehaved
Had three TV channels you got up to change
No video games and no satellite
All we had were friends and they were outside, playin’ outside

[Chorus]
It was a different life
When we were boys and girls
Not just a different time
It was a different world

School always started the same every day
The pledge of allegiance then someone would pray
Not every kid made the team when they tried
We got disappointed and that was all right, we turned out all right

[Chorus]

Bridge
No bottled water, we drank from a garden hose
And every Sunday, all the stores were closed

[Chorus]

[Chorus]

It was a different world

And if you’re interested in the music video…but prolly not because it’s terrible…
