"Back in the days" in lyrics
Everybody's on diet – nobody eats meat anymore
Nobody has a funnel – all guzzling wine
Back in the days everyone was crocked by thursday
I'm sitting on a sofa, smoking all the stuff on my own
Girls, girls, girls, I have to be fair I do not understand you, no.
Girls girls girls, you wouldn't sit on the back of my bike back in the days, no.
Now look at your boy! With his new clothes on.
Remembering those days what we call the undercover time
We couldn't make a link we couldn't say see you another time
Back in the days when I wish you were mine
And I would have been in custody if loving was a crime
For a passing while, would that bring back the rush of danger
which twisted our stomachs
back in the days
when we painted our eyes with black,<fn>“Painted our eyes with black” is both a reference to the schoolyard “rebels” or outcasts using strong or unconventional makeup, such as black eyeliner (think of glam rockers, punk rockers, goths/emos and such), and a more specific reference to Stanley Kubrick’s classic film (an adaptation of Anthony Burgess’ dystopian novel) <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Clockwork_Orange_%28film%29"><em>A Clockwork Orange</em></a>, where the main characters are acting in a very rebellious and anti-social way and wear a very specific kind of black eye makeup. The official music video, once again, features a recognizable image of the eyes of “Alex”, the main character of the novel/film.</fn>
of bloody course you get paranoid when the heads walk around dressed like Remmington Steele
(It) takes you back, back in the days, Norrmalmstorg, Maynard Keynes.
Walks in with a gun in Manhattan Chase, was gonna make a withdrawal, say excuse me
Back in the days we'd always hang out at the centre of the city
Nothing to do, but always fire happening
Cause suburban life was a private party and
Pull a girl, let loose and on to the next one
Nephilim bury em with the bullets left in em
My heart is blacker than the children of Thomas Jefferson
Blacker than back in the days of the tar and feathering
The cancerous endocrine, the ego that’s American
You know how we do when me and my crew bang,
been rapping this kid, since he was down with Wu-Tang.
Back in the days, into the chamber 36,
Big Tig' putting it down in dirty mix, provided by EQ,
i understand. Up to now I still can't forget you.
Inside a distant memory, It seems like time was taken away.
If I could change, i wanna back in the days
The love that came passed us by.
I remember back in the days, on the run, yo
There were two smart-asses hanging out in East Montreal
Max and Jim, yo
They dreamt of becoming Ironik and Narkoi, man [fn]Ironik and Narkoi are the stage names of the aforementioned Max and Jim.[/fn]
Klart som fan att man blir paranoid när huvudmännen går klädda som Remington Steele
Tar det tillbaka, back in the days, Norrmalmstorg, Maynard Keynes
Kliver in med skjutjärn på Manhattan Chase, tänkte göra ett uttag, säg ursäkta mig
Ne ajat on takana muttei kaukana: ”Ajat muuttuu, miehet ei”, oli tapana sanoa.
Ššš, ei pysty jauhaa (ššš) vaan ne jutut ne muistetaan kauan.
Lauttiksen paskis ja pulu, kuule junnu, mulle sillo back in the days se iski ku rumpu.
Sokkarinkoppi oli hottispotti, kaikki sähköboksit osumia otti.
I'm looking at the world with the eyes of a travelling man
only seldom do I indulge in worrying about what's to come
Just a wanderer in luck I am, this part I was given already at birth back in the days
Back in the days it always went like this,
watching TV after school, One Piece and Yu-Gi-Oh!
I was small then and everything was easy
look, I didn´t need mutch, my pocket money was enough.
Tho those who love real funk, I'm not talking about the Mia [fn]Referring to the iconic IAM (One of the biggest name in French rap history !) hit, Je Danse Le Mia.. by the way, you have to check it out.[/fn]
Without a weapon, holding back tears like Kelly Joyce [fn]Referring to a pop song from back in the days which has this line[/fn]
It doesn't concern you so right now, just turn off your TV
When they did what they did back in the days
When they did what they did back in the days
Yes, when they did what they did back in the days
So Goddamn, I stood there outside..
I have to wash daddy, even if he is 50
Mummy left us a long time ago, he's sitting there drinking
Back in the days, he was the one who taught me how to ride bike
Today, he is the one who doesn't notice that he just shat himself
But now things switched, without belief
"Yo, Biz, do you remember me from Noble Street, chief?
We used to be down back in the days"
It happens all the time and never cease to amaze
Yeah, per quanto possa amare il rap
il passato è un flashback
non posso ritornare ad esser quello di Check Check (back in the days)
Aigor schiaccia REC, nuova traccia su MySpace
Thought I had you fooled,baby.Ah ah(Ah ah)
How many time have I just had to lie to your face baby.Ahhh(Ahhh)
Wish I never would have come into your place back in the days
I was wrong, yeah
And if it really was platonic in your rented city loft
Why does Dimitri Chpakov rhyme with 'kneedeep in an asshole'?
I wanted to bash you to mince back in the days,
But I was too blinded by the glistening rhinestone jacket
I'll decorate it tradinionally
Since I wake up until I go to sleep, I still dream about it
I'll learn agriculture, like my grandfather back in the days
I'll learn agriculture, to feed myself and survive with it
Bara para, strictly bizz, ge mig fet hus jag kan sova i
Rullar fin skit mannen jag är E.T, ringer hem till mamma säger take it eazy
Back in the days those homies ba gör skit, men nu för tiden hela skiten i en tidning
Vi lägger cash har aldrig fuckat med någon leasing, 69-66 som [?]
You can find my record under "joke articles" in the stores
Are you as excited as me for later? Because then this song will be remembered as "back in the days"
StRw isn't a trashy tape, it's soon going to be retro
But today I will win; I found the way out
I will have faith in things again, I will live without lies
I will dream again, as I did back in the days
When I found you, when I loved you
Kinda like a little bunny (or grain of wheat)
My album is in stores in the joke section.
Are you looking forward as much as I am to later? Then this song will be '' back in the days''.
StRw is not a trashy tape, it's retro.
Kommerz-Faschisten nehmen mich nicht ernst, so wie ein Zwerg-Kanickel (oder Weizenkorn)
Mein Album steht im Laden unter Scherzartikel
Freust du dich auch, so wie ich auf nachher? Denn dann fällt dieses Lied unter „back in the days“
StRw ist kein trashiges Tape, es ist Retro in Spe
This is a life-long show
Back in the days when the grindasaus ruled the dancefloor, there was a sleaze that everybody knew about. Eight o’clock AM, PM, the people would get up and party and do the caveman.
That was then, but with time I noticed
That the love got big ugly holes
Because back in the days we said "pick you up at eight"
Then came the ugly Nixon and his darn "Watergate"
And to promise things now that it turns out I can do it,
so I guess I’ll come along for a bit.
For it to become thin slices like back in the days,
You can never make me hesitate.
Anytime Okay I’m becoming tipsy little by little
It’s okay Okay I remember those days of childishness little by little
You and me back in the days when we knew nothing
Today I remember those days
But so quickly happy memories, can descend,
Once upon a time we made a pact we where friends till the end,
She used to do - talk the truth, back in the days,
Cos we where tight this girl and I - but time quickly changed,
If I could change time, I'll return you to me again,
We'd love each other like before, because then we couldn't say "no",
We'd go back in the days when we felt so good,
When I was just me and you were just you.
Small-time rappers ain't as dope as us
When you hear rappers in the club, you hope it's us
Back in the days, they used to smoke the dust
But cats kept jumpin off the roof too much
