The Lyrics

Tim Magraw: Sex Change Therapist...
Don't I remember?
The kissing of pop stars
Genie In A Bottle
Taped it on channel 4
Some free Halftime Cleavage
With Justin and Janet
Sitting in my boxers
Don't happen much anymore

I've got redecorated
My top's all conjugated
I like the old and dic-tated
Way of life

Back when a beer was so dear
A bra was a flaw
And cracks what you were showing
When you were bending low
Back when a booze was good news
A hammock for a snooze
And when you said, "Does my butt look fat?"
It'd mean you've been huffing glue
I miss back when
I miss back when
I miss back when

I miss my records
Now they're all so anal
Chicks, and Drunks
And White Trash
Man they sounded fine
I had my favorite stations
The ones that played them all
Baywatch, Isle, The Man Show
Now it more like, Family Ties

I watching Lifetime For Women
Cause I love blind, cancer patients
I want to rebate my money
The way I was back when

Back when the ho's who I'd owe
The wife would never know
And cracks what you were showing
When working on your Geo
Back when baseball was the law
Ballet was all that blew
And when you said, "Does my butt look fat?"
It meant you were drunk on booze
I miss back when
I miss back when
I miss back when

Give me a G-String for stunting
Cause a hot boy band's coming, Oh!!!
It sure beats bumming
The way I did back when

Back when strip bar was a star
Porn was adorn
And cracks what you were showing
When you're the plumbing bloke
Back when Hugh was so huge
Gin with Mountain Dew
And when you said, " Does my butt look fat"
You'd visit your shrink named Drew
I miss back when
I miss back when
I miss back when

Excellent writing and super funny too! 5's. - July 03, 2005 - Report this comment
Nice tweaking of the original, St Matthias, but I suspect that someone's been drinking a little too much gin with their Dew. Fave bits: "a ho's who I'd owe," the crack subs, and the Lifetime verse. I've thought of doing "Drugs for Jesus" but don't want to get disowned and/or Molotov-cocktailed.
