The Old Neighborhood

The old neighborhood I remember it well

Oh, the stories that she could tell

Backyards, streets, fields, and lawns

Some are still there but most are gone

We played with vigor we laughed and cried

We had some fights, but no one died

The mailman, the barber, a penny candy store

Some good old memories but there no more

We played outside into the night

A shooting star zooms out of sight

Girls with dolls and boys with bats

Little kids with cowboy hats

The cranky neighbor  stay off his  lawn

The lawns still there and he’s all gone

A snowball fight a sled to slide

Friends were true stood side by side

Thinking back the years gone by

Some make us laugh some make us cry

The neighborhood and friends  I remember well

Oh, the stories I could tell…
