Back in the Day
Erykah Badu Lyrics


Back in the day now

Back in the day when things were cool, hey
All we needed was bop-bop, bop-bop, bop-ba-domp
Oho, bop-bop, bop-bop, bop-ba-domp
Well, well, well

Back in the day when things were cool, hey
All we needed was bop-bop, bop-bop, bop-ba-domp
Oho, bop-bop, bop-bop, bop-ba-domp
Well, well, well

Soul flower, take me flying with you, hey
Gimme dat bop-bop, bop-bop, bop-ba-domp
Gimme some of dat bop-bop, bop-bop, bop-ba-domp
Well, well, well

Back in the day when things were cool
We used to meet up with these dudes
Then we rode out on hopes and truths
And would ride around the park 'til it's after dark
Pumpin' the trunk with the windows rolled up, puff
Well, well, well, sayin'

Back in the day when things were cool, hey
All we needed was bop-bop, bop-bop, bop-ba-domp
Oho, bop-bop, bop-bop, bop-ba-domp
Well, well, well

Back in the day when things were cool, hey
All we needed was bop-bop, bop-bop, bop-ba-domp
Oho, bop-bop, bop-bop, bop-ba-domp
Well, well, well

Soul flower, take me flying with you, hey
Just gimme dat bop-bop, bop-bop, bop-ba-domp
Gimme some of dat bop-bop, bop-bop, bop-ba-domp
Well, well, well

Wailin' and singin' and jammin' and talkin'
And pumpin' the trunk with the windows rolled up, puff
Well, well, well
The laughin' and singin' and jammin' and talkin'
And pumpin' the trunk with the windows rolled up, puff
Well, well, well
Laughin' and singin' and jammin' and talkin'
And pumpin' the trunk with the windows rolled up, puff
Well, well, well
And we would ride around the park 'til it's after dark
And when we get home hope the dogs don't bark, puff
Well, well, well
Laughin' and singin' and jammin' and talkin'
And pumpin' the trunk with the windows rolled up, puff
Well, well, well
And we would ride around the park 'til it's after dark
And when we get home hope the dog don't bark, puff
Well, well, well
Laughin' and singin' and jammin' and talkin'
And pumpin' the trunk with the windows rolled up, puff
Well, well, well
And we would ride around the park 'til it's after dark
And when we get home hope the dogs don't bark, puff

[Chorus]
Back in the day when things were cool, hey
All we needed was bop-bop, bop-bop, bop-ba-domp
Ooooh, bop-bop, bop-bop, bop-ba-domp
Well well well
[Repeat]

Soulflower take me flying with you, hey
Gimme dat bop-bop, bop-bop, bop-ba-domp
Gimme some of dat bop-bop, bop-bop, bop-ba-domp
Well well well

Back in the day when things were cool
We used to meet up with these dudes
Then we'd roll out on Vogues and Trues*
And would ride around the park till its after dark
Pumpin the trunk with the windows rolled up, puff
Well well well

[Chorus 2x]

Soulflower take me flying with you, hey
Just gimme dat bop-bop, bop-bop, bop-ba-domp
Gimme some of dat bop-bop, bop-bop, bop-ba-domp
Well well well

Wailin and singin and jammin and talkin
And pumpin the trunk with the windows rolled up, puff
Well well well
Da laughin and singin and jammin and talkin
Pumpin the trunk with the windows rolled up, puff
Well well well
Laughin and singin and jammin and talkin
And pumpin the trunk with the windows rolled up, puff
And we would ride around the park till its after dark
And when we get home hope the dogs dont bark, puff
Well well well
Laughin and singin and jammin and talkin
And pumpin the trunk with the windows rolled up, puff
Well well well
And we would ride around the park till its after dark
And when we get home hope the dogs dont bark, puff
Well well well
Laughin and singin and jammin and talkin
And pumpin the trunk with the windows rolled up, puff
Well well well
And we would ride around the park till its after dark
And when we get home hope the dogs dont bark
[Puff until fade-out

My dad played this song for me all the time as a kid. I'm 14 now, and I'm am starting to realize that my Dad had a really good taste in music. Wish I found that out sooner...
