A VCR and a DVD 
There wasn't none of that crap back in 1970
We didn't know about a world wide web
It was a whole different game being played 
Back when I was a kid
You wanna get down in a cool way? 
Picture yourself on a beautiful day
With the big bell bottoms and groovy long hair
Just a walking in style with a portable CD player

Flash back to '72
Another summer in the neighbrohood
Hanging out with nothing to do
Sometimes we go driving around in my sister's Pinto
Crusing with the windows rolled down
We listen to the radio station
We were too damn poor to buy the 8-track tapes
But it was a good time don't wanna be inside
My momma wanna watch that TV
All God damn night

I'd be in bed with the radio on
I would listen to it all night long
Just to hear my favorite song
You'd have to wait but you could hear it on the AM radio

Things changed back in '75
We were all growing up on the in and the outside
We got in trouble with the police man
We got busted for getting high 
In the back of my friend's van
