Babies of the 80's

This song is by Andrew McMahon and appears on the EP Andrew McMahon (1999).

I grew up on Five Alive
And Transformers and Slip 'n' Slide
Toy's R Us and Chuck E. Cheese
Disco out and techno in to synthesize my favorite sin
And here I am on my knees
To get it back again

Babies of the 80's
Little girls in lycra shorts
Tented beds, Nerf contact sports
My babies of the 80's
Shout it out just one more time
For the generation that was all mine

We learned to crawl on linoleum floors
Ronald Reagan fought Star Wars
But he'll never be Han Solo
Students march Tian'anmen Square
They took him out- hey that's not fair
Dad said it's good to be free to watch from our TV

Babies of the 80's
Little girls in lycra shorts
Tented beds, Nerf contact sports
My babies of the 80's
Shout it out just one more time
For the generation that was all mine

We watched the Wall fall down
Woke up early for Bozo the Clown
MTV and Nick at Night
And I slept for the first time without the light
Without the light...

Babies of the 80's
Little girls in jelly shoes
Got the Ferris Bueller blues
My babies of the 80's
This would be something after all
Who knew this would be something after all
Who knew this would be something after all
Who knew...
