I remember when chocolate bars were 50 cents
and mojos were a penny.
I remember when we were free to roam
and I remember Squiggy and Lenny.
I remember the Love Boat
And dreamed about Fantasy Island.
I remember junior high fiascos
And my brother's air guitar band.
I remember shiny yellow tights
And looking like a fool
As I tried to find some fashion sense
So I could finally be cool.
I remember Kevin kissing me,
Right in front of my boyfriend.
I remember 2:00 a.m.
And all the rules that I would bend.
I remember holding my first baby
And thinking ewww, and ick!
And I remember how scared we were
When at 6 weeks she got so sick.
I remember Vegas,
and cruising to Belize.
Disneyland and Cozumel
And coming home to freeze!
I remember quick zips
And balloon pants all the rage.
I remember looks from parents,
them thinking we were strange.
I remember getting my allowance
And heading straight to the store.
I would go to the German butcher
and buy beef jerkey galore!
I remember when my brother
Lost his sweet, sweet wife.
I remember being angry and shocked
That she would take her own life.
I remember going dancing
All hours of the night
Then going back to Char's house
And playing Nintendo till the sun was bright.
I remember Tanya Hotsack.
Yes, that's her real name.
I remember a guy in an alley,
And he said it was just a game.
I remember banana clips,
and great big '80s hair.
All the neon and leggings
and the Madonna look, with flair.
I remember getting drunk
And my very first hangover.
I remember playing Catch'em and kiss 'em
7-up and Red Rover.
I remember dodge ball
And dancing jazz and tap.
Fighting with my brothers
And sitting on Santa's lap.
I remember Mr. Cowan,
He was my grade six teacher.
And I remember Harold Alsten,
He was my mom's preacher.
I remember writing poems
About heartbreak and dreams
And marriage vows and promises
And how much they both mean.
