lyrics

Verse 1

I was raised in them days with the boxed up Chevys / Socks with the flip-flops / Tank tops with the long T's real heavy / Yeah white like Betty / All good like spaghetti / Yeah we thought we was hard in charge and ready / High school days was females and fades / Had to keep a fresh cut, the edge real straight / Young dudes coming out the hills
We was cool / Had no direction expecting to act a fool / And had a routine, that's the way we'd do things / Make sure the shoes clean, creased blue jeans / Catch a ride with ya homey to the school scene / Cafeteria free lunch was our food see / It was cool though / And after school bro / We would hit the courts hard homey u know / That's the way we used to do it time flew though / After graduation it was brand new though..

Chorus

Running round streets all day / Looking for a place to play / Barely getting minimum wage / They say it's the American way / American Daze / Hip-hop in the deck when I drive / Show your homey clean rims on a ride / Who got the biggest system inside / Hear the bass when the car drive by / American Daze

Verse 2

Graduated high school / Look at how the time move / Some went to college, some ran the streets like other dudes / We tryna find our way and no don't wanna lose / Momma tryna tell me but I wanna choose / Knocking all the wisdom wanna pay my dues / But things is changing fast / No time to play the blues / Better find a passion get a job and cruise / My homies either smoking that or drinking boos / I need another point of view to pass the mood / American days, American youth / Snap a picture of the times like a photo booth / Thought your boys’ ul always be there then they gone poof / Relationships is ancient like a phone booth / Old friends either locked up or gone shoot / I'm steady praying there's a better way / Looking for a better day / A finer way of living, Truth

Chorus

Running round streets all day / Looking for a place to play / Barely getting minimum wage / They say it's the American way / American Daze / Hip-hop in the deck when I drive / Show your homey clean rims on a ride / Who got the biggest system inside / Hear the bass when the car drive by / American Daze
