Back in the Day
by Nelson

We take it in at the movies
You pitch us on tv
All of you latest and greatest scams
All your flavors of the week

So you're confused by that retro sound
And why it just keeps coming back around? (well cuz...)

Back in the day
We felt we could do the impossible
Back in the day
All our dreams were simply unstoppable
Back in the day

You went and lowered the standards
And thought we never knew
Well, you can hail shit a thousand times
But that don't make it groove

That's why you can't make us walk away
from a soundtrack that still sounds great (because)

Back in the day
We were free to be anything we wanted to
Back in the day
We believed there was nothing that we couldn't do
Before they taught us the fear to fly
Before we sold out and ceased to try
The radio was our saving grace
Yeah, our heros showed us the way
Back in the day

Our classic 45's are nothing less that time machines
Press play to spin then climb right in
and take that trip to what you need

They break us out - they see us through
We're ten feet tall and bullet proof
Wouldn't want to know what to do without those songs we play
From back in the day


Back in the day
When we were nothing short of incredible
They broke us out - they got us through
Made us ten feet tall and bullet proof
Yeah, they made me like they made you
those magic songs they play
From back in the day
