Lookin' at the radio caught up in a dream,

'Bout the days gone by when no one had a TV.
Hopin' that the weatherman would say good things,
Like no rain on Friday for the drive-in movie.

Little kids didn't have a care,
There was love growin' up everywhere.
But when I open my eyes and the dream stops playin',
You can still find me somewhere sayin',

I should've been born in '45.
In '54 I would've been 9.
White shirt, poodle skirt, silk hair tie,

Dancin' in the moonlight...
That woulda been nice.
Ooo ooh,

That woulda been nice.
Ooo ooh
Boombox on my shoulder with my favorite tape,
I'm reppin' my 8 tracks and my buckle up skates.
How do I know about that,
You say.
You say.

You wear bell bottom jeans, get a double take
From all the guys and the girls who look your way.
Back then people didn't always agree,
But the love goin' round was revolutionary.
And even though the world was crazy,
I'd still go if my dreams could take me.

Oh, I should've been born in '65,
In '74 I would've been 9.

Tryna' get home after playin' outside,
Racin' street lights, racin' street lights,
I shoulda been born in '65,

I woulda been a teenager 'round '79.
Teasing my hair so it looks just right,
On a Saturday night, yeah.
That woulda been nice.
Oo Ooh,
That woulda been nice.

Growin' up, I never really had a care.
There was love all the time and everywhere.
Even though my world may get a little crazy,
I find myself bein' proud when I say,
I could've been born in '45,

But the truth is I got here right on time.
And I thank God for every day of life.
It suits me just right,
It suits me just right.
And lovely 1991 1999
That's the year that I come from.  That is my time,
And I wouldn't wanna trade it for another time,
I love this life, yeah,
I love this life.
Ooh ooh,
I love this life.
Ooo ooh,
I love this life.

Love that song and the pics you chose to accompany it, Joy! Takes me back a little (okay not that far back..but I can identify with some of it). :) Love Jamie Grace's singing too! Her songs are so catchy and she has a great voice!

Love you! 10!
