When I Was Your Age

Let me tell you, sonny. Let me set you straight

You kids today ain't never had it rough

Always had everything handed to you on a silver plate

You lazy brats think nothing's good enough

Well, nobody ever drove me to school when it was ninety degrees below

We had to walk butt naked through forty miles of snow

Worked in the coal mine twenty two hours a day for just half a cent

Had to sell my internal organs just to pay the rent



When I was your age. When I was your age

When I was your age. When I was your age



Let me tell you something, you whiny little snot

There's something wrong with all you kids today

You just don't appreciate all the things you've got

We were hungry, broke and miserable

And we liked it better that way



There were seventy-three of us living in a cardboard box

All I got for Christmas was a lousy bag of rocks

Every night for dinner we had a big chunk of dirt

If we were really good we didn't get dessert



When I was your age. When I was your age

When I was your age. When I was your age



Didn't have no telephone didn't have no FAX machine

All we had was a couple of cans and a crummy piece of string

Didn't have no swimming pool when I was just a lad

Our neighbor's septic tank was the closest thing we had

Didn't have no dental floss had to use old rusty nails

Didn't have Nintendo, we just poured salt on snails

Didn't have no water bed, had to sleep on broken glass

Didn't have no lawnmower, we used our teeth to cut the grass



What's the matter now, sonny, you say you don't believe this junk?

You think my story's wearin' kinda thin?

I tell you one thing, I never was such a disrespectful punk

Back in my time, we had a thing called discipline



Dad would whoop us every night till a quarter after twelve

Then he'd get too tired and he'd make us whoop ourselves

Then he'd chop me into pieces and play frisbee with my brain

And let me tell ya, Junior, you never heard me complain



When I was your age. When I was your age

When I was your age. When I was your age
