[Verse 1]
  Dm7            G7
Looking back on when I...
   Dm7           G7          Dm7  G7   Dm7  G7
...Was a little nappy headed boy,
Dm7           G7      Dm7
Then my only worry ...was, for Christmas,
 G7              Dm7   G7  Dm7  G7
What would be my toy,
 A7                B7      Em7              Gm7
Even though we, sometimes, would not get a thing,
A7             B7          Em7               A7#5
We were happy with the  ...joy the day would bring!


[Verse 2]
  Dm7             G7
Sneaking out the back door,
   Dm7                   G7               Dm7   G7      Dm7  G7
To hang out with those hoodlum friends of mine,    Hoo -oo!
  Dm7           G7
Greeted at the back door,
             Dm7               G7              Dm7  G7  Dm7  G7
With, "Boy,'thought I told you not to go out - side!"
  A7                 B7        Em7          Gm7
Trying your best to bring the water to your eyes,
  A7               B7             Em7              A7#5
Thinking it might stop her from whooping your be - hind!


[Chorus]
                   Dm7         G7        Dm7
I wish those days    ...could    ...come back once more,
     G7            Dm7         G7        Dm7
Why did those days     ...ev       - ver have to go?
   G7              Dm7         G7        Dm7
I wish those days   ...could     ...come back once more,
     G7            Dm7         G7        Dm7
Why did those days     ...ev       - ver have to go?
   G7              Dm7
'Cause I love them so!


[Bridge]
Dm7       G7                Dm7                 G7
    Doo, doo-doo, doo-doo!  Doo- doo -doo, doo, doo -doo-doo!
Dm7       G7                Dm7                 G7
    Doo, doo-doo, doo-doo!  Doo- doo -doo, doo, doo -doo-doo!


[Verse 3]
  Dm7              G7
Brother says he's telling...
    Dm7                 G7             Dm7  G7  Dm7 G7
...'Bout you playing' doctor with that girl,    huh!
Dm7                       G7
Just don't tell and I'll give you...
    Dm7          G7                Dm7       G7  Dm7  G7
...Anything you want in this whole wide world,
 A7             B7      Em7         Gm7
Mama gives you money ...for Sunday school,
 A7                  B7       Em7             A7#5
You trade yours for candy ...after church is through!


[Verse 4]
  Dm7        G7
Smoking cigarettes, and...
     Dm7              G7          Dm7   G7
...Writing something nasty on the wall,
           Dm7   G7    Dm7              G7
(You nasty boy!)      Teacher sends you to the...
      Dm7            G7               Dm7  G7   Dm7  G7
...Principal's of - fice ...down the hall,
 A7              B7            Em7               Gm7
You grow up and learn that ...kinda thing ain't right,
       A7            B7           Em7            A7#5
But, while you were doin' it, it sure felt outta sight!


[Chorus]
                   Dm7         G7        Dm7
I wish those days    ...could    ...come back once more,
     G7            Dm7         G7        Dm7
Why did those days     ...ev       - ver have to go?
   G7              Dm7         G7        Dm7
I wish those days   ...could     ...come back once more,
     G7            Dm7         G7        Dm7
Why did those days     ...ev       - ver have to go?
G7            Dm7
Yeah -eh -eh, eh!  Ee---!
