Yeah, yeah (oh...)
Now you know i have to reminisce at some point
(oh i wanna go...)
Hehe, for all the people (?)
(oh i wanna go...)


Man, i want to go back to being a kid
ah, you know when life was so easy to live (yeah)
yeah, no pressure, no reason to think
and like 3, 4 5, and even in 6, shit
ask anyone, 'how did it feel?'
on that night before Christmas, when Santa was real
ah, you had to figure out the names of your gifts
then sort them all, make it a list
you had a stocking and you get and fill it, until it was packed
and all you had to do was to leave him out, to milk and a snack
hehe, surviving was pain the night that he came
cuz i could never get to sleep
that shit would drive me insane
but, instead of trying there, i just lie there and wait
and keep my eyes on the sky, while i'm hiding my face
just me thinking that it might be the day
that i see him fly by riding his sleigh
games, were playing Mario and Sonic the hedgehog
and back then we sang tenor rocky to sweat hog (ha)
all these things that i want in a track
it's so hard, i just wanna go back
yeah i wanna go, go go go...

[Chorus:]
(oh i wanna go) all the way yep
now i know, what i would change going down that road
i wanna go back
(oh i wanna go) all the way yep
now i know, what i would change going down that road


And primary school was kinda cool
i think i picked my best friend just cuz i liked his pool
plus, he was always good at helping me try
that kid, my mind's able doing my times table
ha, you had to know them all and them in order
and everybody had to try and play the recorder
yep, the golden age of roller blades
but in grade four, i loved skate boards way more
yeah, i played sport, renowned as that menace who would always get in trouble around his bat tennis
ha, and back then if stuff was all fair
and love and warfare, there was isn't four square
nah, we relax playing marbles all class
it was either that or trade basketball cards
every day mum sorted all my lunch box
i wrote me out an order from the tuck shop
polo tops, your shirts weren't button up
and everyone had run amok in an undercut
a phase went half a week into spring
that's when i got a shaved head, and started leaving a fringe
i know, some hate it when their clothes updated
yo but i have a heart attack for a starter cap
yeah, we got summer for three hot months
I'd still be rocking cross colours in my Reebok pumps, ha

[Chorus:]
(oh i... wanna go) all the way yep
now i know, what i would change going down that road
i wanna go back
(oh i... wanna go) all the way yep
now i know, what i would change going down that road


Yeah, and when i think of high school it starts making me sick
Inside, i can't lie yo, I hated the shit
but it's funny til you get here, you never can tell
how good it really was from year seven to twelve
when you went to school from nine to three
then, had to get home in time for tea
and, that's it, yep no other real worries
except maybe do a bit of study,
and sit there right at the back, writing a rack
i couldn't give a shit about science or maths
nah, but trying to write an essay neatly in my own words
no chance you ever see me doing homework
(well done) but i just wish that i could go back now
when you leaving a stay for even a day
then i could see what i dream when I'm on my own
and i could be there, i wanna go, i wanna go

[Chorus:]
(oh i wanna go) all the way yep
now i know, what i would change going down that road
i wanna go back
(oh i wanna go) all the way yep
now i know, what i would change going down that road
i wanna go back
(oh i wanna go oh i wanna... go) yep
i wanna go back
(oh i wanna go oh i wanna... go) yep
i wanna go back

(oh i wanna... go
oh i wanna... go
oh i wanna go
oh i wanna... go
oh i wanna go
oh i wanna... go)
