      About "Cherry Bomb"

      Lyrics for John Mellencamp - "Cherry Bomb"

      Well I lived on the outskirts of town
      In an eight room farmhouse, baby
      When my brothers and friends were around
      There was always somethin' doin'
      Had me a couple of real nice girlfriends
      Stopped by to see me every once in a while
      When I think back about those days
      All I can do is sit and smile

      That's when smoke was a smoke
      And groovin' was groovin'
      And dancin' meant everything
      We were young and we were improvin'
      Laughin' laughin' with our friends
      Holding hands meant somethin' baby
      Outside the club "Cherry Bomb"
      Where our hearts were really thumpin'
      Say yeah yeah yeah
      Say yeah yeah yeah

      The winter days they last forever
      And the weekends went by so quick
      We ridin' around this little country town
      We were goin' nuts, girl, out in the stick
      One night me with my big mouth
      A couple guys had to put me in my place
      When I see those guys these days
      We just laugh and say
      Remember when

      That's when smoke was a smoke
      And groovin' was groovin'
      And dancin' meant everything
      We were young and we were improvin'
      Laughin' laughin' with our friends
      Holding hands meant somethin' baby
      Outside the club "Cherry Bomb"
      Where our hearts were really thumpin'
      Say yeah yeah yeah
      Say yeah yeah yeah

      Seventeen has turned thirty-five
      I'm surprised that we're still livin'
      If we've done any wrong
      I hope that we're forgiven
      Got a few kids on my own
      And some days I still don't know what to do
      I hope that they're not laughin' too
      Loud, when they hear me talkin'
      Like this to you

      That's when smoke was a smoke
      And groovin' was groovin'
      And dancin' meant everything
      We were young and we were improvin'
      Laughin', laughin' with our friends
      Holding hands meant so much baby
      Outside the club "Cherry Bomb"
      Where our hearts were really thumpin'
      Say yeah yeah yeah
      Say yeah yeah yeah
