"Doing Time" as written by and John Bogert Jim Mccarty....





I remember times I had

some were happy some were sad

memories me and my partners in crime

throwing up a thousand times

I got through it I feel fine

I went to school and did my time

In a sense I'm out in a sense I'm free

to be what I want to be

Fun was cartoons Saturdays

Fun was staying up past eight

lame was tring to fit in

lame was the wrong crowd let me it

YOu gotta stick together

with who you are and who you know

You gotta remember

Where you've been and where you want to go

I never did homework after school

did all the things I thought were cool

went out every Friday night

I still do and I'm alright.

    General CommentI think it goes from way before high school and ends after high school. "Fun was cartoons Saturdays / Fun was staying up past eight" I remember i loved staying up late (past eight) when i was in elementary school. As i got older staying up past eight and watching cartoons on saturdays wasnt as much fun. The wrong crowd letting you in usually doesnt happen till middle or high school. I think this song is about growing up in general.

    General Commentyeah, it's nostalgic. while you're growing up it's boring and shitty. but once you're there you look back and think "wow those were some fun times!". basically because you only remember the good times, and you can see how the bad times ended.
