Birthday parties with all my friends
Barbie dolls, Chatty Cathy, never to be bored
Dress up with the girls on the corner
What child could ask for more?
Climbing the tree in our front yard
To watch the fireworks at Disneyland
Dressing in our finest for Easter
My childhood it was so grand.
Loving, caring, giving parents
Our happiness seemed their priority
Would go without to give us everything
Now a days that would be a minority.
I would not trade my childhood
Bike riding, hide n seek, street ball
Not for Nintendo, aol or cable
What I had was the best of all.
