Do You Remember When

Yelling out the windows 
Playing out side kick the can hide and seek  tag your it 
Jump rope TV black and white   shows family time 
Boom box radios cassette players taking a pencil
To roll up the cassette so it can play right
Every corner bodega potato chips ten cents 
Penny candy playing out side till the street lights 
Got dim and haul ass on home 
Street pay phones ten cents to a quarter 
When talking back was slap and a belt was 
Your respect giving back not 911 involved
Sitting around the kitchen table talking about your day 
Going dancing in the clubs and disco skating was a 
Pass the time barbecues at a friends house parties 
Music was used to get a girl our a boy 
Brake dancing on card board boxes  in the park 
Block parties on the streets domino players chafer beer 
Black out summer Nabors would look out for each other
When meeting someone was face to face not face book 
When braking up was hard to do not via text 
When calling home was payphones not cell phones 
When playing games were fun out doors not in doors
When family get together were fun not fights
