I Wish Lyrics

I Wish – Stevie Wonder

Looking back on when I was a little nappy headed boy
Then my only worry was for Christmas what would be my toy
Even though we sometimes would not get a thing
We were happy with the joy the day would bring

Sneaking out the back door to hang out with those hoodlum friends of mine
Greeted at the back door with boy thought I told you not to go outside
Trying your best to bring the water to your eyes
Thinking it might stop her from woopin’ your behind

I wish those days could come back once more
Why did those days ever have to go
I wish those days could come back once more
Why did those days ever have to go
Cause I love them so

Do do do…

Brother says he’s telling ’bout you playing doctor with that girl
Just don’t tell I’ll give you anything you want in this whole wide world
Mama gives you money for Sunday school
You trade yours for candy after church is through

Smoking cigarettes and writing something nasty on the wall (you nasty boy)
Teacher sends you to the principal’s office down the hall
You grow up and learn that kinda thing ain’t right
But while you were doing it, it sure felt outta sight

I wish those days could come back once more
Why did those days ever have to go
I wish those days could come back once more
Why did those days ever have to go
