I saw star wars at least eight times
Had the pac-man pattern memorized
I've seen the stuff they put inside... Stretch Armstrong
Yeah

I was Rodger Stall back in my backyard
Had a shoe box full of baseball cards
And a couple of Evil Kenieval scars on my right arm

Well I was a kid when Elvis died
And my mama cried...

It was 1970 something
In the world that I grew up in
Farah Faucett hairdoo days, bell bottoms and 8-track tapes
Lookin' back now I can see me
And oh man did I look cheesy
I wouldn't trade those days for nothin'
Oh, it was 1970 somethin'

It was the dawning of a new decade
We got our first microwave
Dad broke down and finally shaved those sideburns off
I took the stickers off of my Rubix Cube
Watched MTV all afternoon
My first love was Daisy Duke
Wit them, cut-off jeans
Space shuttle fell out of the sky
And the whole world cried

It was 1980 somethin'
In the world that I grew up in
Skating rinks and black trans ams
Big hair and parachute pants
Lookin' back now I can see me
And Oh, man did I look cheesy
I wouldn't trade those days for nothin'
Oh, it was 1980 somethin'

Now I got a mortgage and an SUV
But all this responsibility
Makes me wish... sometimes...

It was 1980 somethin'
In the world that I grew up in
Skating rinks and black trans ams
Big hair and parachute pants
Lookin' back now I can see me
And Oh, man did I look cheesy
I wouldn't trade those days for nothin'
Oh, it was 1980 somethin'

1970 somethin'...

Oh, it was 19 somethin'...
