Bowling For Soup

Summer of 69

 

Got my first real six-string

Bought it at the five-and-dime

Played it till my fingers bled

Was the summer of '69

 

Me and some guys from school

Had a band and we tried real hard

Jimmy quit and Joey got married

I shoulda known, we'd never get far

 

Oh, when I look back now

The summer seemed to last forever

And if i had the choice,

Yeah, I'd always wanna be there

Those were the best days of my life

 

Ain't no use in complainin

When you got a job to do

Spent my evenin's down at the drive-in

And that's where i met you, girl

 

Standin on your mama's porch,

You told me that you'd wait forever

Oh, and when you held my hand

I knew that it was now or never

Those were the best days of my life

 

Oh yeah

 

Back in the summer of '69, uh-huh

 

Yeah, we were killin time

We were young and restless, we needed to unwind

I guess nothing can last forever,

Forever, no

Yeah

 

And now the times are a-changin

Look at everything that's come and gone

Everytime when i play that old six-string

I think about you, wonder what went wrong

 

Standin on your mama's porch

(that's right)

you told me it would last forever

Oh and when you held my hand

I knew that it was now or never

Those were the best days of my life

 

Oh yeah

 

Back in the summer of '69, uh-huh

 

Me and my baby had 69, oh yeah

 

Back in the summer of '69
