Good Times (Delinquent Habits)

I've often wondered how long it's gonna take me In this world until the good Lord shake me And to the man I put up with mad sorrow But I learned soon the sun still shines tomorrow Sometimes bad thoughts they brought me down Growin up hard livin' poor side of town Cause where I was I wondered who will ever need me? But now I know that much love flew freely My momma my poppa both took care No matter what I did I knew they would be there Ball in the school yard puppy love crushes Mischief in the nightime with intimate touches Playin' with the females Christmas was cool Didn't have much but had enough fool So here's three cheers beers up and take a chug Cause this one's for all the past times I dug Even though most of all my life was bad I reminisce on all the good times I had Even though most of all my life was bad I reminisce on all the good times I had Even though most of all my life was bad I reminisce on all the good times I had So if you think all of your life was bad Reminisce on all the good times you had Well it was once upon a time in the seventies a baby boy bounces Placed on this earth wayin' seven and some ounces But that wasn't all of the bouncin' It was hard for mom to try to keep the proper housin' Straight from Gardena before my sista Linda Migrated to the East Side projects Maravilla There I had my stroll on Rigin' Elementary Moms a quarter century pop left us on empty But that was nothin' new though packin up our shit so We could make the move Cudahay was the zip code Moms working fingers to the bone just to make ends meat I was a latch key delinquent daily runnin' the street And every time I look back I think of just anotha challenge Holidays and birthdays grim still I managed To key a smile making life fun And how can I forget about the seasons in the sun? So here's three cheers beer up and take a chug Cause this one's for all the past times I dug
