I Wish – Stevie Wonder!

Looking back on when I was a little nappy headed boy,
then my only worry was for Christmas what would be my toy.
Even though we sometimes would not get a thing,
we were happy with the joy the day would bring.

Sneaking out the back door to hang out with those hoodlum friends of mine.
Greeted at the back door with boy thought I told you not to go outside.
Trying your best to bring the water to your eyes,
thinking it might stop her from woopin’ your behind.

I wish those days could come back once more,
why did those days ever have to go.
I wish those days could come back once more,
why did those days ever have to go,
Cause I love them so.

Do do do…

Brother says he’s telling ’bout you playing doctor with that girl.
Just don’t tell I’ll give you anything you want in this whole wide world.
Mama gives you money for Sunday school,
you trade yours for candy after church is through.

Smoking cigarettes and writing something nasty on the wall (you nasty boy).
Teacher sends you to the principal’s office down the hall.
You grow up and learn that kinda thing ain’t right,
but while you were doing it, it sure felt outta sight.

I wish those days could come back once more,
why did those days ever have to go.
I wish those days could come back once more,
why did those days ever have to go.
