when i was younger i fell in love with the girl next door
back to the beat yo back to the beat of 1984
we had beat street we had breakin’ 1 and 2 electric boogaloo dude it was cool
we’d bust out the cardboard in the backstreet by the drugstore just me and you afterschool

you said i did the worm better than anyone that you knew
breakin’ with you was the best time of my life
i wanna breakdance yeah i wanna breakdance with you

    General CommentThis almost reminds me of a kind of Gen X version of "We're going to be friends" by The White Stripes.

    I love this song.

    Thank you people like Justin Pierre and Rivers Cuomo who give nerds like me something to believe in.
