What happened to those days
When we got up early Christmas mornin'
To peek under the tree
While our parents were still snorin'

And what happened to those days
When we ran around without socks
And the highlight of our week
Was to find the toy in the cereal box

And why can't we go back
To the simple days of the past?
When Mom called us in for dinner
And we thought only bicycles went fast

[Chorus]
These memories will be with me forever
'Cause we're all still young at heart
And I think at times we all hope
That we'll relive some of those parts

'Cause the innocence of a child
And their carefree ways
Remind us to not worry
About what's gonna happen today
Gonna happen today

It's a nice escape from reality
When you reminisce on your childhood
And take just a few minutes
To remember when times were good

I could never forget
All the tree houses and forts built
And the time I scraped my leg
From fallin' down the hill

I've got scars and scrapes
To remind me of the good ‘ole days
The long trips to the beach
And when I went through the tom boy phase

[Chorus]

I wish I was still afraid of cooties
I wish I still wrestled with the boys
I wish I still sat in Dad’s lap
I wish I still got excited over new toys

Now I’ve got real life to deal with
And now I’ve got relationships to lose
My life can never be my flashbacks
And now there’s nothing left to choose
