Lyrics

Back in the day, when we used to dance
You chuckle every time that I’d misstep
Now that we’re older, and our hairs get grey
You never cut me slack for my mistakes
You know I never meant to sink to such depths
Why would I, jeopardize, what we built behind that fence?
Stay with me, baby, when you can
It’s a pain to see, but I’m still your man
Back in our time, before the children
We were all the envy of our friends
Then we were blessed, with 3 little babies
Whatever broke we built it up again
You know I never meant to sink to the bottom
Why would I, jeopardize, what I built as a father?
Stay with me, on some lost weekend
It’s a pain to see but our hearts we can mend
Back in the day (Back in the day), when we used to dance (when we used to dance)
You’d chuckle every time that I’d misstep
Now that we’re older (Now that we’re older), and our hairs get grey (and our
hairs get grey)
You never cut me slack for my mistakes
You know I never meant to sink to such depths
Why would I, jeopardize, what we built behind that fence?
Stay with me baby when you can
It’s a pain to see but you’re still my man
Oh, it’s a pain to see but I’m still your man
