Lyrics

<p><strong>It Wasn't So Long Ago</strong></p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>It wasn't so long ago</p>
<p>There were three kids here</p>
<p>Three beautiful girls</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>It wasn't so long ago</p>
<p>There were three kids here</p>
<p>Some even with curls</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>It wasn't so long ago&nbsp;</p>
<p>With laughter, squeals and shouts</p>
<p>Our home was full of toys</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>It wasn't so long ago</p>
<p>With baseballs and Barbies</p>
<p>A home filled with joy</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p><em><strong>Chorus</strong></em></p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p><strong>And just like that</strong></p>
<p><strong>One by one</strong></p>
<p><strong>They left the house</strong></p>
<p><strong>It was no fun</strong></p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p><strong>Yeah, and just like that</strong></p>
<p><strong>They left our home</strong></p>
<p><strong>It was time to go out</strong></p>
<p><strong>On their own</strong></p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p><em><strong>Chorus</strong></em></p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p><strong>And just like that</strong></p>
<p><strong>One by one</strong></p>
<p><strong>They left the house</strong></p>
<p><strong>It was no fun</strong></p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p><strong>Yeah, and just like that</strong></p>
<p><strong>They left our home</strong></p>
<p><strong>It was time to go out</strong></p>
<p><strong>One their own</strong></p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>It wasn't so long ago</p>
<p>There were three kids here</p>
<p>Three beautiful girls</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>It wasn't so long ago</p>
<p>There were three kids here</p>
<p>Some even with curls</p>
