When I was your age!


The inspiration of my Senior Assignment :)))

Let me tell you sonny... let me tell you straight

You kids today ain't never had it tough

Always had everything handed to you on a silver plate

You lazy brats think nothing's good enough

Well, nobody ever drove me to school when it was ninety degrees below

We had to walk buck naked through forty miles of snow

Worked in the coal mines twenty two hours a day for just half a cent

Had to sell me internal organs just to pay the rent

When I was your age. When I was your age

When I was your age. When I was your age

Let me tell you something, you whiny little snot

There's something wrong with all you kids today

You just don't appreciate all the things you've got

We were hungry, broken and miserable and we liked it fine that way

There were seventy three of us living in a cardboard box

All I got for Christmas was a lousy bag of rocks

Every night for dinner, we had a big 'ol chunk of dirt

If we were really good, we didn't get dessert

When I was your age. When I was your age

When I was your age. When I was your age

Didn't have no telephone, didn't have no FAX machine

All we had was a couple cans and a crummy piece of string

Didn't have no swimming pool when I was just a lad

Our neighbor's mseptic tank was the closest thing we had

Didn't have no dental floss, had to use old rusty nails

Didn't have Nintendo, we just poured salt on snails

Didn't have no water bed, had to sleep on broken glass

Didn't have no lawnmower, we used our teeth to cut the grass

What's the matter now, sonny, you say you don't believe this junk?

You think my story's wearin' kinda thin?

I tell you one thing, I never was such a disrespectful punk

Back in my time, we had a thing called discipline

Dad would whoop us every night till a quarter after twelve

Then he'd get too tired and he'd make us whoop ourselves

Then he'd chop me into pieces and play frisbee with my brain

And let me tell ya, Junior, you never heard me complain

When I was your age. When I was your age

When I was your age. When I was your age
