Lyrics

Well, I lived on the outskirts of town In an eight room farmhouse, baby When my brothers and friends were around There was always something doing Had me a couple of real nice girlfriends Stopped by to see me every once in a while When I think back about those days All I can do is sit and smile [CHORUS] That's when a sport was a sport And grooving was grooving And dancing meant everything We were young and we were improving Laughing, laughing with our friends Holding hands meant something, baby Outside the Club Cherry Bomb Our hearts were really thumping Say, yeah, yeah, yeah Say, yeah, yeah, yeah The winter days they last forever But the weekends went by so quick Went riding around this little country town We were going nuts girl, out in the sticks One night, me with my big mouth A couple guys had to put me in my place When I see those guys these days We just laugh and say "Do you remember when?"

[repeat CHORUS] Say, yeah, yeah, yeah Say, yeah, yeah, yeah Seventeen has turned thirty-five I'm surprised that we're still living If we've done any wrong I hope that we're forgiven Got a few kids of my own And some days I still don't know what to do I hope that they're not laughing too loud When they hear me talking like this to you That's when a sport was a sport And grooving was grooving And dancing meant everything We were young and we were improving Laughing, laughing with our friends Holding hands meant so much, baby Outside the Club Cherry Bomb Our hearts were really thumping Say, yeah, yeah, yeah Say, yeah, yeah, yeah
