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.

    I 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.

    yeah, 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.

    my favourite MxPx song, i saw it on a punk show on TV. i agree with Unseen on how its about your so innosent when your younger but that changes at you get older.
