Celine Dion - "I Wish" lyrics

Looking 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

Sneaking out the back door

To hang out with those hoodlum friends of mine

With "boy thought I told you not to go outside"
Greeted at the back door

Tryin' your best to bring the

Thinkin' it might stop her
Water to your eyes

From woopin' 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

'Bout you playin' doctor with that girl

Brother says he's tellin'

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 writing something nasty on the wall

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
