Watching while some old friends do a line
Holding back the want to end my own addicted mind
Wishin’ it was still the thing even I could do
Wishin’ all these old things were new

Watching while some young men go to jail
And they show it all on TV
Just to see somebody fail
And I guess there’s not a single thing a man like me can do
Wishin’ all these old things were new

Wishin’ all these old things were new
Good times like the roaring 20’s and
The roaring 80’s too
Thinking about the good old days
