Lyrics

It Wasn’t So Long Ago


Verse 1

It wasn’t so long ago there were three kids here

Three beautiful girls

It wasn’t so long ago, there were three kids here

Some even with curls


Verse 2

It wasn’t so long ago with laughter squeals and shouts

Our home was full of toys

It wasn’t so long with baseballs and Barbies

A home filled with joy


Chorus

And just like that

one by one

They left the house

It was no fun, yeah

And just like

they left our home

It was time to go out on their own


Instrumental break



Chorus

And just like that

one by one

They left the house

It was no fun, yeah

And just like

they left our home

It was time to go out on their own


Verse 1 repeated

It wasn’t so long ago, there were three kids here

Three beautiful girls

It wasn’t so long ago, there were three kids here

Some even with curls
