LyricsEdit

Lookin' back on my younger days Life was a play and the world a stage Lust, love and greed were in my heart I thought I had to play each part

I'd skip school and get in a fight Had a different girl every Friday night But it all came out in the wash Dad always said boys will be boys

Mom and dad backed me through it all Picked me up each time I'd fall In fact they called it growing pains And said all kids must try such things They kept the faith and brought me through I still make a mistake or two Lookin' back on my younger days Life was a play and the world a stage

I lost my driver's license twice For speeding and running red lights But like all kids I lived and learned Play with fire and you'll get burned

I bucked the system day and night Smoked cigarettes and tried the wine Thought breakin' rules was bein' cool It's clear to me now I was a fool

Mom and dad backed me through it all Picked me up each time I'd fall In fact they called it growing pains And said all kids must try such things They kept the faith and brought me through I still make a mistake or two Lookin' back on my younger days Life was a play and the world a stage

Yeah everything turned out ok Life was a play and the world a stage
