I want to be a kid again.
I want go back to the time when ;
Decisions were made by
Mistakes were corrected
By simply exclaiming ,"do over!"
"Race issue" meant arguing
About who ran the fastest.
Money issues were handled by whoever
Was the banker in "Monopoly."
Catching the fireflies could happily
Occupy an entire evening.
It wasn't odd to have two or three "best" friends.
Being old, referred to anyone over 20.
The net on a tennis court
Was the perfect height to play
Volleyball and rules didn't matter.
The worst thing you could catch
From the opposite sex was "cooties"
It was unbelievable that dodgeball
Wasn't an Olympic event.
Having a weapon in school,
Meant being caught with a slingshot.
Nobody was prettier
Scrapes and bruises
Were kissed and made better.
It was a big deal to finally be tall enough
To ride the "big people" rides at the amusement park.
Getting a foot of snow was a dream come true.
Abilities were discovered
Because of a "double- dog-dare."
Saturday morning cartoons
Weren't 30 minute ads for action figures.
No shopping trip was complete
Unless a new toy was brought home.
"Spinning around, getting dizzy
And falling down was cause for giggles.
War was a car game.
Water balloons were the ultimate weapon.
Baseball cards in the spokes transformed
Any bike into a motorcycle.
Taking drugs meant
Orange-flavored chewable aspirin.
Ice cream was considered
A basic food group.
Older siblings were the worst tormentors,
But also the fiercest protectors.
If you can remember most or all of these,
Then you have LIVED !!!!!
