"Born In the 70s" as written by and Eric D. Johnson....
Taking gulps, of big blue sea, of georgia peach and texas tea. The sands of time, stuck in your shoe that make you cross, they make you blue. Whatever happened to you? - You were born in the 70s [2x]

The Ins & Outs, cold and hard, lost in space and parking lots. For 44s, 454s, they get me off, they get me high. So whatever happened to me? - I was born in the 70s, and you were born, you were born in the 70s - and we were born, we were born in the 70s [2x] -- Ticking goes, the big blue sea, a georgia peach and texas tea. The sands of time, stuck in your shoe that make you cross, they make you blue. Whatever happened to you? - You were born in the 70s [2x]

The year tonight, cold and hard, lost in space and parking lots. For forty fours, for fifty fives, they get me off, they get me high. So whatever happened to me? - I was born in the 70s, and you were born, you were born in the 70s - and we were born, we were born in the 70s [2x]



There are many television references; Lost in Space, Beverly hillbillies and Days of our lives (sands of time) which remind me of being a latch-key kid in the 1970s, when television was my sitter. \"454s\" refers to the 1970s muscle cars' engines. I love this song...it's an under-appreciated classic. -- Taking gulps, of big blue sea, a georgia peach and texas tea. The sands of time, stuck in your shoe that make you cross, they make you blue. Whatever happened to you? - You were born in the 70s [2x]

The ins & outs, cold at hearts, lost in space and parking lots. For forty fours, 454s, they get me off, they get me high. So whatever happened to me? - I was born in the 70s, and you were born, you were born in the 70s - and we were born, we were born in the 70s [2x]

    General Comment"Taking gulps...of big blue sea" always reminded me of big gulp slurpees from 7-11. "Georgia Peach" - bubble yum flavor? "Texas Tea" from the Beverly Hillbillies.

    "The Ins & Outs" - A Clockwork Orange reference
    "Lost in Space" - one of the best syndicated shows ever!
    "for .44s" - dirty harry magnums?
    "454s" - the big block chevy engine of choice.

    Generation X blues, yes. but more probably nostalgia for a much maligned decade that wasn't soo bad in retrospect.
