As a sixth grader, the song title meant that our class would be together for "always". If I hear the song now I'm instantly taken back to "them days".
--Fighting to be first in the lunchline
--Playing in the school yard was STILL cool
--Chasing boys meant playin' tag
--Pigtails and ribbons in my hair was accepted
--Boyfriends were boys that happened to be friends
--All birthday parties were attended by our parents also
--The only card game I knew was Crazy 8
--My whole world really was all the land between my house, the school and the church
--Double Dutch, Chinese Jumprope and High Jump... being good at it meant you were the most popular girl in the school
--Girls stood around at school dances and danced in a circle... guys did the same
I could actually go on and on and on about them days.... I miss it. I miss that innocense... that brand-newness. **sigh**
"...ooh you're like the sun chasing all of the rain away..."
