Lyrics - Just Like The Old Days

Along came young Jerry , his ride he loved most
He rode town to town, he rode coast to coast
The last thing I heard he’d rode straight back to hell
As if one day the curtain literally just fell

Cole hears his woman ain’t being sincere
These things don’t take long to get far round here
He hares down the dueley, one lane to another
In an old beaten hatchback belonged his mother
Slade ventures down to his local blue bookies
He scans through his tickets like an old jar of cookies
He’s forgot about Toronto, and the Highland Springs
He sings here I have all the best things

Excuse me, while I think of the phrase
The old man’s so stuck in his ways
Just like the old days

Me I went drivin’, through the unguarded docks
To a small fishing pier close to Old Harry Rocks
No one to try beat me down as I rise
No one to pull the wool over my eyes
Imagine if opinion, blew its own cover
It’d all be the same sound, the same shape and colour
Everything sincere, yet sincerely vein
In a world where we all shared the same name

Amuse me, with your sorry cliches
Fire up that honey green haze
Just like the old days
Baby use me, if one wants then one stays
Live life like life’s just a phase
Just like the old days
