I Wish
Stevie Wonder
Lookin' back on when I was a little nappy headed boy
Then my only worry
Was for Christmas what would be my toy
Even though we sometimes would not get a thing
We were happy with the joy the day would bring

Sneakin' out the back door
To hang out with those hoodlum friends of mine...ooh
Greeted at the back door
With, 'Boy, I thought I told you not to go outside'
Tryin' your best to bring the water to your eyes
Thinkin' it might stop her from whippin' your behind

I wish those days could come back once more
Why did those days ever have to go
I wish those days could come back once more
Why did those days ever have to go
Cause I love them so

Doo doo, doo doo, doop doop, doop doop, doop, doo doo doo
Doo doo, doo doo, doop doop, doop doop, doo doo

Brother says he's tellin'
'Bout you're playin' doctor with that girl
Just don't tell I'll give you
Anything you want in this whole wide world
Mama gives you money for Sunday school
You trade yours for candy after church is through

Smokin' cigarettes and
Writin' something nasty on the wall...you nasty boy
Teacher sends you to the principal's office down the hall
You grow up and learn that kinda thing ain't right
But while you were doin' it, it sure felt outta sight

I wish those days could come back once more
Why did those days ever have to go
I wish those days could come back once more
Why did those days ever have to go
Ooh ooh ho
