Lyrics

These days,
these days weren’t always this good.
I didn’t pay my debts like I should.
I was scattered and plain lazy
and I’d rather get high.
That’s what I… did to survive.

In school,
in school there was always a bell.
And if you were late
you would surely catch hell.
So, I’d skip class, go to Duly’s,
order a Coney and fries.
That’s what I… did to survive.

I would miss the bus
cause I stayed up all night
with the radio to my ear
I’d sneak a beer and hide.
That’s what I… did to survive.

At night,
at night we’d go walkin’ through the streets
We be singin’ and tappin’ our feet.
From every window
you’d hear the music
so we’d step out in time.
That’s what I… did to survive.

I would miss the bus
cause I stayed up all night
with the radio to my ear
I’d sneak a beer and hide.
That’s what I… did to survive.

In the band,
in the band we’d play rock and roll.
and those girls would capture my soul.
At the breaks when
I felt lonely
there was always one by my side.
That’s what I… did to survive.

I would miss the bus
cause I stayed up all night
with the radio to my ear
I’d sneak a beer and hide.
That’s what I… did to survive.

That’s what I… did to survive.
