"Good Old Days" as written by Alecia B Moore, Billy Mann and David Schuler....
1, 2, 3, 4, 5 years go by
I don't really know why, I don't really know why
7, 8, 9, 11 years go by
I don't really know why, I don't really know why
I still feel the same way I did when I was 17
I still look over my shoulder waitin' for the world to change

But these are the good old days
These are the good old days
These are the good old days
And I think I'd like to stay
Oh, I'd like to stay
Oh, I'd like to stay

1, 2, 3, 4, 5 years ago
I didn't see a belly with a child on the inside
6, 7, 8, 10 years ago I thought I knew about love
I only knew about the fight
I look back and I realize all those times I was lonely
Praying for someday to hurry up and come and save me

But these are the good old days
These are the good old days
These are the good old days
And I wish that I could stay
I wish that I could stay
I wish I could stay

These are the good old days
That I could stay
These are the good old days
And the more that you let it go
The faster the time goes
The darker the night is
The lighter the moon glows

These are the good old days
These are the good old days

1, 2, 3, 4, 5 years from now
I hope I'm still getting down
Hope I'm still around
But 6, 7, 8, 10 beers ago
I had a revelation all is well right now
It's all good right now
It's all good right now
It's all good right now

These are the good old days
These are the good old days
These are the good old days
And I wish that I could stay

These are the good old days
These are the good old days
These are the good old days
And I wish that I could stay

These are the good old days
These are the good old days
These are the good old days
And I wish that I could stay
I wish that I could stay
And I wish that I could stay (these are the good old days)
And I wish that I could stay

These are the good old days (these are the good old days, yeah)
These are the good old days (these are the good old days, yeah)
These are the good old days (these are the good old days, yeah)
These are the good old days (these are the good old days, yeah)

    General CommentI always thought this song was about living in the moment and enjoying everyday. People always talk about 'the good old days' and how things aren't the same anymore and nothing will ever be as good as it used to be. Whereas this song is saying that you need to enjoy everyday and these days are the good old days.

    It's a great little message and a great little song.
