Delinquent Habits – Good Times lyrics

[Verse 1]

I've often wondered how long it's gonna take me

In this world until the good Lord shake me

And to the man I put up with mad sorrow

But I learned soon the sun still shines tomorrow

Sometimes bad thoughts they brought me down
Growin up hard livin' poor side of town


Cause where I was I wondered who will ever need me?

My momma my poppa both took care
But now I know that much love flew freely

No matter what I did I knew they would be there


Ball in the school yard puppy love crushes

Mischief in the nightime with intimate touches

Playin' with the females Christmas was cool

Didn't have much but had enough fool


So here's three cheers beers up and take a chug
Cause this one's for all the past times I dug


[Chorus]


Even though most of all my life was bad

I reminisce on all the good times I had

Even though most of all my life was bad

I reminisce on all the good times I had
Even though most of all my life was bad


I reminisce on all the good times I had

So if you think all of your life was bad

Reminisce on all the good times you had



[Verse 2]

Well it was once upon a time in the seventies a baby boy bounces

Placed on this earth wayin' seven and some ounces

But that wasn't all of the bouncin'

It was hard for mom to try to keep the proper housin'

Straight from Gardena before my sista Linda
Migrated to the East Side projects Maravilla


There I had my stroll on Rigin' Elementary

Moms a quarter century pop left us on empty

But that was nothin' new though packin up our shit so

We could make the move Cudahay was the zip code

Moms working fingers to the bone just to make ends meat

I was a latch key delinquent daily runnin' the street

And every time I look back I think of just anotha challenge

Holidays and birthdays grim still I managed

To key a smile making life fun


And how can I forget about the seasons in the sun?
So here's three cheers beer up and take a chug

Cause this one's for all the past times I dug



[Chorus]
