lyrics

Do you remember when you were young?
And everything was new
The world was at your beckon call
And you spent half it in the lew
You pissed away those years
And you’ll never get em’ back
Your life was in the bottle
And society’s taken its empties back

All those hopes and dreams
Have all been poured right down your throat
The real world kicked your ass
And now it’s got ya’ by the throat
You got dealt life’s worst hand
And you’re all but ready to fold
To bad that all that street cred
Ain’t worth it’s weight in gold
Whoa oh oh, Whoah oh oh ooooooh ah a oh
Hey, Hey
Hey, Hey

Do you remember when you moved out?
And were runnin’ with the crew
You were on a first name basis
With all the boys in blue
Petty crimes and five buck wine
Brass knuckles and your jack
Your life’s tied to a train track
And it’s never comin’ back

All those hopes and dreams
Have all been poured right down your throat
The real world kicked your ass
And now it’s got ya’ by the throat
You got dealt life’s worst hand
And you’re all but ready to fold
To bad that all that street cred
Ain’t worth it’s weight in gold

Whoa oh oh, Whoah oh oh ooooooh ah a oh
Hey, Hey
Hey, Hey
