Those Were Not The Days

I remember sitting on the floor of your apartment
Because you didn't have a table or a chair
Listening to your favorite song:
If I Could Turn Back Time by Cher
I remember smoking lots of Marlboro Light 100s
And blowing all the smoke outside
With your friends from the back who were dressed in black
And acted like someone died

I don't care what you say
Those were not the days
They were fun in so many ways
But those were not the days

It's so much better now

You turned off all the lights and lit half a dozens candles
To save on the electric bill
And when you said "Sit next to me"
I said "OK, I will"
Jerkin' and a-twitchin', we were lying in the kitchen
With my knees on the cold hard floor
It was sweet, but I never want to sleep
On linoleum anymore

I don't care what you say
Those were not the days
They were fun in so many ways
But those were not the days

It's so much better now

Now we're still together in a beautiful apartment
You're afraid that the adventure's gone
Why don't we just sit down on the floor
And listen to your favorite song
Why don't we call your friends from the back
They're living in the suburbs now
I'll bet if we did, they wouldn't be caught dead
In this neighborhood anyhow

I don't care what you say
Those were not the days
They were fun in so many ways
But those were not the days

It's so much better now
