I Wish

Stevie Wonder

                                        Lookin back on when I, was a little nappy headed boy,
                                      Then my only worry, was for Christmas what would be my toy,
 Even though we sometimes, would not get a thing, 
 We were happy with the, joy that they would bring, 
(repeat as above)
Sneakin out the back door to hang out with those hoodlum friends of mine
Greeted at the back door with "I thought I told you not to go outside,
Tryin the best to bring that water to your eye
Thinkin it might stop her from whuppin your behind
I wish those days,  could ,  come back once more 
Why did those days   ev-----er    have to go 
I wish those days,  could,  come back once more 
                                     Why did those days   ev----er  have to go, cause I loved 'em so...
Brother says hes tellin, bout you playin doctor with that girl
Just don't tell Ill give you, anything you want in this whole wide world,
Mama gives you money, for Sunday school
You trade yours for candy, after chuch is through
Smokin cigarettes and writin somethin nasty on the wall
Teacher sends you to the principle office down the hall
You grow up and learn that kind of thing aint right
But while you were doin it, it sure felt outta sight
I wish those days, could, come back once more
Why did those days ev-er have to go
I wish those days, could, come back once more
Why did those days ev-er have to go, cause I loved em so.......
