My Heyday

by Thomas K. Hunt

You should have seen me in my heyday
It seems like it was just yesterday
As I went out and made my way
I found my heyday was every day

I've been told I was a lot of fun
Between the islands in the sun
Cruising the river for a midnight run
Laid back and enjoying everyone

Let me take you down memory lane
Lazy days in the summer rain
At the top of the hill under the street light
Where Alexandria and Union connect
Right there on the corner we placed our hockey nets

Calling captain to choose the sides
Counting to ten just to run and hide
You'd hear the play by play late into the night
The laughter and the fights
Stooges in a screen lit room
One more time Alice, it's to the moon

Shirley Temples at Aubrey's Bowling Alley bar
Making right turns around town in the car
Meeting down at the Golden Anchor
Then heading to Obrien's from there
You should have seen me in my heyday
Lost in the fun without a care

The legion dock was the spot
It was the place to go when you were hot
We cleared the ice with just a shovel
We wanted to play to the game
Looking back it wasn't any trouble
If we had to we'd do it again

Little league baseball under the lion's eye
That time of the year when the bullheads fry
Sleep overs in the cabin in the woods
Listening to the creek flow
just because we could

New adventures everyday
Innocence lost in play
That's all water under the French Creek bridge
You'll have a blast if you do what we did

I grew up straight and I grew up strong
Was taught the difference between right and wrong
Learned to respect along the way
and make every day my heyday

You should have seen me in my heyday
You did if you saw me yesterday
There is one thing you can say
It's my heyday every day
