[Verse 1] 
Lo[Dm7]oking back on w[G7]hen I...
...[Dm7]Was a little n[G7]appy headed [Dm7]boy,[G7] [Dm7] [G7]
[Dm7]Then my only w[G7]orry ...[Dm7]was, for Christmas,
W[G7]hat would be my [Dm7]toy,[G7] [Dm7] [G7]
E[A7]ven though we, som[B7]etimes, [Em7]would not get a t[Gm7]hing,
[A7]We were happy w[B7]ith the ...[Em7]joy the day would [A7#5]bring!
[Verse 2] 
Sn[Dm7]eaking out the b[G7]ack door,
To [Dm7]hang out with those ho[G7]odlum friends of [Dm7]mine, [G7] Hoo -[Dm7]oo![G7]
Gr[Dm7]eeted at the b[G7]ack door,
With, "Boy,'t[Dm7]hought I told you [G7]not to go out - [Dm7]side![G7]"[Dm7] [G7]
Tr[A7]ying your best to b[B7]ring the w[Em7]ater to your [Gm7]eyes,
Th[A7]inking it might s[B7]top her from wh[Em7]ooping your be - [A7#5]hind!
[Cborus] 
I wish those days [Dm7] ...could [G7] ...come [Dm7]back once more,
Why d[G7]id those days [Dm7] ...ev [G7] - ver [Dm7]have to go?
I w[G7]ish those days [Dm7] ...could [G7] ...come [Dm7]back once more,
Why d[G7]id those days [Dm7] ...ev [G7] - ver [Dm7]have to go?
'Ca[G7]use I love them [Dm7]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] 
Br[Dm7]other says he's t[G7]elling...
...'[Dm7]Bout you playing' do[G7]ctor with that [Dm7]girl,[G7] [Dm7]huh![G7]
[Dm7]Just don't tell and I'll g[G7]ive you...
...A[Dm7]nything you w[G7]ant in this whole [Dm7]wide world[G7],[Dm7] [G7]
M[A7]ama gives you m[B7]oney ...[Em7]for Sunday s[Gm7]chool,
Y[A7]ou trade yours for c[B7]andy ...a[Em7]fter church is t[A7#5]hrough!
[Verse 4] 
Sm[Dm7]oking cigar[G7]ettes, and...
...Wr[Dm7]iting something n[G7]asty on the [Dm7]wall,[G7]
(You nasty [Dm7]boy!) [G7] T[Dm7]eacher sends you [G7]to the...
...Pri[Dm7]ncipal's of - f[G7]ice ...down the h[Dm7]all,[G7] [Dm7] [G7]

Why d[G7]id those days [Dm7] ...ev [G7] - ver [Dm7]have to go?
