e block We rocked polka dots gangstas wore Guess with house shoes Without a care with nothing to lose come on Chorus: De La Soul, JB's and A Tribe Called Quest Man we didn't know what we missed Oh we growin' old oh we growin' old Oh we growin' old 3rd Base, Special Ed and KRS Years ahead all of the rest Oh we growin' old oh we growin' old Oh we growin' old The Pharcyde, Souls Of Mischief and the Wu Tang Clan Oh we didn't have a plan Oh we growin' old oh we growin' old Oh we growin' old The Freestyle Fellowship and MC Shan The wind blew away the sand Because oh we growin' old oh we growin' old Oh we growin' old Outro: I once the whole world And all the time in the land The mountains high and the valleys low I never planned That it would leak right through hand And I guess it's too late to know B-boys B-girls Be boys be girls good night
