Soda shop children to five o'clock bars a giant step in just a few years
Freckle faced girls to painted up women from chocolate cup Sundays to bottles of beer
Barrooms and pop a tops are long way from soda shops
Those pick me ups now let me down
Barrooms and pop a tops are long way from soda shops
Bartender let's have one more round

Sittin' and thinkin' as I'll go on drinkin'
And thoughts take me back to my childhood dreams
A bein' a superstar drivin' a fancy car till I found out the world's not what it seems
Barrooms and pop a tops...
[ piano ]
For those freckle faced girls are now painted up women
And some can be found at this bar around five
I'll bet they're thinking back to some little soda shacks
And wishing those days had never passed by
Barrooms and pop a tops...
Barrooms and pop a tops...
