Preach on, Bucky

Different World – Bucky Covington
We were born to mothers who smoked and drank
Our cribs were covered in lead based paint
No child proof lids no seat belts in cars
Rode bikes with no helmets and still here we are, 
still here we are
We got daddy’s belt when we misbehaved Had three TV channels you got up to change No video games and no satellite All we had were friends and they were outside,
playin’ outside

Chorus

It was a different life When we were boys and girls Not just a different time It was a different world
School always started the same every day The pledge of allegiance then someone would pray Not every kid made the team when they tried We got disappointed and that was all right, we
turned out all right
Chorus
Bridge

No bottled water, we drank from a garden hose And every Sunday, all the stores were closed

Chorus

Chorus

It was a different world
 
Mom, Dad & Richard - thank you for my childhood and 
all the happy memories of my youth
