Lyrics

Back in the Day

Do the bats still come out in austin
or have the cranes scared the suckers away
When they filled up the skies
They pshish in your eyes
But that was back in the day

Is the music still free in Austin
Or have the streamers finally made us all pay
Hippie hour sing and smile
Flying free for a while
But that was back in the day

It was back, it was back
It was way way way back
It was back it was back in the day

Can you still get slow tex-mex in austin
Or did the drive thrus drive it away
You'ld all come to meet us
At Old Las Manitas
But that was back in the day

Do kids here still work for a living
Or do they just influence others all day.
We worked live, not online
Used the old school face time
But that was back in the day

chorus

Do the hippies still hang out in Austin
Or did the wierdness just tie die away
Crazy Carl twirled his flowers
Showed the real Austin powers
But that was back in the day

Cars back to back out on MoPac
I-35 Big Ass Trucks block the way
Used to drive my own ride
And knew I would survive
But that was back in the day

chorus





Who caused the first land rush to Austin
Who gave that damn secret away
Moses begged the king
Three hundred families to bring
but that was way back in the day

You say the bats still come out in Austin
But time slowly turns grass to hay
You can bet your sweet ass
That you'll say of your past
That that was back in the day'

It was back, it was back
It was way way way back
It was back it was back in the day
