Well I lived on the outskirts of town In an eight room farmhouse, baby When my brothers and friends were around There was always something' doin' Had me a couple of real nice girlfriends Stopped by to see me every once in a while When I think back about those days All I can do is sit and smile

CHORUS That's when a sport was a sport And groovin' was groovin' And dancin' meant everything We were young and we were improvin' Laughin', laughin' with our friends Holdin' hands meant somethin' baby Outside the club "Cherry Bomb" Our hearts were really thumpin' Say yeah yeah yeah Say yeah yeah yeah

The winter days they last forever But the weekends went by so quick Went ridin' around this little country town We were goin' nuts, girl, out in the sticks One night, me with my big mouth A couple guys had to put me in my place When I see those guys these days We just laugh and say do you remember when


Seventeen has turned thirty-five I'm surprised that we're still ivin' If we've done any wrong I hope that we're forgiven Got a few kids of my own And some days I still don't know what to do I hope that they're not laughin' too loud When they hear me talkin' Like this to you
