Growing Up In My Small Town 

Life was simple and times they were fun

Summer days in the lake to beat the heat and sun

 

Cut off blue jeans and no shoes were ever worn

We would just use our knife if we stepped on a thorn

 

Saturdays we all rode downtown on our bikes

Eating ice cream and watching a movie we liked

 

After supper kids washed dishes and watched TV together

With only 3 channels we just had to watch whatever

 

Curfew by parents when on a date Saturday Night

Were all firmly set for the stroke of midnight

 

No stores open Wednesday afternoon or Sunday at the time

And nowhere on Sunday could you buy beer or wine

 

Friday night football games were the event of the week

To all of us kids the players were true heroes I think

 

The parents they knew all of the kids coming around

Life sure was great growing up in my small town

 

From My World To Yours,
