School was fun,
A drink was juice,
Getting high was going on swings,
A hoe was a gardening tool,
Protection was your bike helmet,
Fights lasted 2 minutes,
Breaking up was pushing a glass over,
Pressure was something older kids learned in science,
Boys had cooties,
Swearing was bad,

Coke was a drink,
Pot was a cooking utensil,
Blowing was for candles,
Your parents were your hero's,
Dying was for old people.
Those were the days,
But not anymore.
