1980 Something (feat. The WitWits)

Music & Lyrics by Kareem Salama

V1
1980 Something were my good old days
View's pretty good looking back through my oversized 80s shades
I was living on the edge of life rolling down the hill on my radio flyer
Hands up, eyes wide, laughing with friends screaming "faster and start a little higher!"

C1
Remember 1980Something
Playing kick the can outside all night
And the world had a little more mercy and a little less Cobra Kai
And Chunk shared his Baby Ruth with Sloth and taught how to look on the inside
And Ferris didn't need four letter words to make us laugh till we cried
That was 1980Something a good time to start your life

V2
1980Something Katie Holmes wanna marry Tom Cruise
I guess she taught us all that dreams really do come true
And the Bangles were walking like Egyptians making me the cool kid in school
And saying "One nation under God" was an honor not a lawsuit

C2
Remember 1980Something
Playing kick the can outside all night
And the world had a little more mercy and a little less Cobra Kai
And ET made us all believe that our differences are light
And with faith and a whip, and a friend on his hip Indy Jones made it through the ride
That was 1980Something a good time to start your life

Bridge
I know those days weren't perfect with Russia in Afghanistan
Africa was Starving, and Aids was starting, and we still saw man against man
But Germany brought the wall down and the rockers brought live Aid
So 2010 a new decade again let's write the song we'll sing one day

C3
Remember 1980Something
Playing kick the can outside all night
And the world had a little more mercy and a little less Cobra Kai

C4
1980Something playing kick the can outside all night
And the world had a little more mercy and a little less Cobra Kai
That was 1980Something a good time to start your life

C5
1980Something playing kick the can outside all night
And the world had a little more mercy and a little less Cobra Kai
