lyrics

[Verse 1]

First things first…80s baby
I had to make a track ‘bout 80s ladies
Spandex…silk shirts
Big perms…short skirts
First girl, heartbeat be stoppin’
Full House Lori Loughlin
Then Elisabeth Shue
Karate Kid 1, not Karate Kid II
Y’all already know who used to drive me crazy
Hair go big like top-down Mercedes
Yo, I missed one, hold up, wait
Ain’t nobody finer than Phoebe Cates
Kathy, Cindy, Brinkley, too
Eyes stay stuck like superglue
I loved MC Lyte and Lisa Bonet,
Michelle Pfeiffer too many to name

[Chorus:]

Ain't it funny how the times flies by in the blink of an eye
If we could just rewind for just a little while
Remember how things used to be, picture you and me
Though it may be hazy, ooh yeah I'm an 80s baby

[Verse 2]

Kids today…they don’t understand
The 80s were gnarly, like, totally, man
Better bikes, better babes, better cars too
Better tunes, better rooms, better cartoons
PG-13 movies…
…still showed lots of boobies
Man, what’s better than that?
Nothing! Actual fact.
In the 80s, MJ still looked black
Used to stay up real late
Elvira lookin’ real great
I was a Cali kid, Niners! Raiders!
Pick the wrong one and you’re labeled a traitor
Playing outside planning major capers
Reading color comics in the Sunday papers
Still not thinkin’ that the 80s were the best?
Three letters: NES

[Chorus:]

Ain't it funny how the times flies by in the blink of an eye
If we could just rewind for just a little while
Remember how things used to be, picture you and me
Though it may be hazy, ooh yeah I'm an 80s baby

[Verse 3]

Yo, I’ve been thinking a little bit
I got a little ahead of myself, just a little bit
The eighties were crazy in every way that I remembered it
Until I remembered that, like, nobody had the internet
No wi-fi, no high-speed
No Brie Larson no Blake Lively
So you wanted to catch ALF on a Tuesday…
Tough luck, ‘cause ALF was on Mondays
You had to wait six days for ALF to play
But today, hell, go cop the blu-ray
Our old tech were straight up frightening
Need reminding of tape rewinding?
It’s better now, what more do you need?
We got PS4s! And legal weed!
We got gay marriage! And IMAX screens!
And a female President in 2016! YO!

[Chorus:]

Ain't it funny how the times flies by in the blink of an eye
If we could just rewind for just a little while
Remember how things used to be, picture you and me
Though it may be hazy, ooh yeah I'm an 80s baby
