A Different World Lyrics By Bucky Covington

    we were born to mothers who smoked and drank
    our cribs were covered in lead based paint
    no child proof lids no seat belts in cars
    rode bikes with no helmets and still here we are still here we are
    we got daddy’s belt when we misbehaved
    had three tv channels you got up to change
    no video games and no satellite
    all we had were friends and they were outside playin’ outside

    it was a different life
    when we were boys and girls
    not just a different time
    it was a different world

    school always started the same every day
    the pledge of allegiance then someone would pray
    not every kid made the team when they tried
    we got disappointed and that was all right we turned out all right

    no bottled water we drank from a garden hose
    and every sunday all the stores were closed

    it was a different world
