Errybody had one in their hood during their youth,

Remember the man askin' for change, or the hillbilly wit one toof,

We used to be glad when momma said: "Wanna go to the store?"

If she sent you you food stamps:D , now you ain't wanna go no more,

Mamma sent you to the store for cubed sugar and a loaf of bread,

Trying to sneak that under yo shirt, so you can buy that fake Barbie instead,

Them corner stores look all shabby and run down,

But make the best deli sammiches on yo' side of town,

they have the funniest names one could ever imagine,

'Quicker Liquor', 'Penny Pincher', 'Stop and Grab', had ya laughin,

Remember the guy who was constantly chased away,

for claiming he was Jesus :angel1: made you wanna get down and pray,

buying Lemonheads, Boston Baked Beans, candy cig's the whole nine,

puttin foil on your teeth, so they can bling and shine,

Flossin on the other little girls cuz you had nice barrettes in yo hair,

rollin ya neck,

bad as #eck,

You was sooooo cool for even being seen there,

at that corner sto'


:dance1: :yo: :spin:

LOL... the .03 Bazooka Joe bubble gums! I know you remember those 10 for $1 ice cream sandwiches that weren't meant for individual sale. Ahhh the memories;)
