When I Was Your Age Lyrics

Let me tell you sonny... let me tell you
You kids today ain't never had it tough
Always had everything handed to you on a
silver plate
You lazy brats think nothing's good enough.

Well, nobody ever drove me to school when
it was ninety degrees below,
We had to walk buck naked through forty
miles of snow,
Worked in the coal mines twenty two hours a
day for just half a cent,
Had to sell me internal organs just to pay
the rent

When I was your age. When I was your age
When I was your age. When I was your age

Let me tell you something, you whiny little
There's something wrong with all you kids
You just don't appreciate all the things
you've got
We were hungry, broke, and miserable and we
liked it fine that way.

There were seventy-three of us living in a
cardboard box
All I got for Christmas was a lousy bag of
Every night for dinner, we had a big 'ol
chunk of dirt
If we were really good, we didn't get

When I was your age. When I was your age
When I was your age. When I was your age

Didn't have no telephone, didn't have no
gax machine
All we had was a couple cans and a crummy
piece of string
Didn't have no swimming pool when I was
just a lad
Our neighbor's septic tank was the closest
thing we had
Didn't have no dental floss, had to use old
rusty nails
Didn't have Nintendo, we just poured salt
on snails
Didn't have no water bed, had to sleep on
broken glass
Didn't have no lawnmower, we used our teeth
to cut the grass

What's the matter now, sonny, you say you
don't believe this junk?
You think my story's wearin' kinda thin?
I tell you one thing, I never was such a
disrespectful punk
Back in my time, we had a thing called

Dad would whoop us every night till a
quarter after twelve
Then he'd get too tired and he'd make us
whoop ourselves
Then he'd chop me into pieces and play
frisbee with my brain
And let me tell ya, Junior, you never heard
me complain

When I was your age. When I was your age
When I was your age. When I was your age
