I got my first real six-string
Dad got it from a Primary School music teacher or somethin'
Played Wild Thing on the top string till I got bored
Was the summer(ish) of '83
Me and some broomstick I taped a mike to
Had a band and we were real tryhards
Then I quit, Wild Thing was boring
Shoulda known, I'd never get far
Oh when I look back now
That summer, I was 8… so… I didn't analyse it much
And if I had the choice
Yeah, I guess it'd cool to try being 8 again
Those were the, hmm, I don't totally remember em, but I'm sure - ok days of my life
Ain't no use in complainin'
I mean, I'm 8… what's goin on, seriously?
Spent my evenings watching Batman
And that's when I met Danielle Nipper
Standin' on my Mum's porch
You told me that you could see Knox City from there
Oh and when you held my hand, who am I kidding, she never held my hand
I knew that it was now or at some later time
Those were, I'm fairly sure, pretty ok days of my life
There ya go. Fixed.
