    Here’s to the old school
    To blue- light basement parties
    That long awaited slow dance
    Here’s to neatly cut afros
    Men unafraid of romance

    Here’s to the Background singers
    Harmonic voices making the songs so sweet
    Here’s to Wrangler and Converse
    Bell Bottoms flowing
    Chuck Taylor’s on our feet

    Here’s to “Old Reliable”
    My ’76 Cutlass Supreme
    Black power
    Back in the day
    Much more than today’s dream

    Thinking back
    Playn’ ball all day long
    In the subway station
    Singing a doo-wop song
    Italian Ices
    Malted milk shakes
    Now-and-Later
    Trying to get a girl
    Stuck in the project elevator

    Purple haze
    Kiss the sky
    Getting’ high
    Far too many friends have said goodbye

    I’m still here
    Watching young bloods so cool
    A very different kind of brother
    Than the ones from the old school

    nothing like a brotha who understands the beauty of the Motown Sound, Russell Thompkins and the boys, Blue Magic, Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes, Chi-Lites, Dells, Delfonics, the Manhattans, Bloodstone, Curtis Mayfield, the Impressions, Ohio Players, Gladys and the Pips, Isleys, LTD, the Ice Man, James Brown, the Sound of Philadelphia, The Maestro of Love, Holland Dozier Holland...to name a few...
