I Wish Lyrics - Stevie Wonder

Review The Song (3)

Looking back on when I
Was a little nappy headed boy
Then my only worry
Was for Christmas what would be my toy
Even though we sometimes
Would not get a thing
We were happy with the
Joy the day would bring

Sneaking out the back door
To hang out with those hoodlum friends of mine
Greeted at the back door
boy I thought I told you not to go outside
Tryin' your best to bring the
Water to your eyes
Thinkin' it might stop her
From woopin' your behind

I wish those days could come back once more
Why did those days ev-er have to go
I wish those days could come back once more
Why did those days ev-er have to go
Cause I love them so

Brother says he's tellin'
'Bout you playin' doctor with that girl
Just don't tell I'll give you
Anything you want in this whole wide world
Mama gives you money for Sunday school
You trade yours for candy after church is through

Smokin' cigarettes and writing something nasty on the wall (you nasty boy)
Teacher sends you to the principal's office down the hall
You grow up and learn that kinda thing ain't right
But while you were doing it-it sure felt outta sight

I wish those days could come back once more
Why did those days ev-er have to go
I wish those days could come back once more
Why did those days ev-er have to go

Stevie Wonder is ONE OF THE GREATEST and is ofcourse amongst some of the best. This is an amazing song that flows so well and has absolutely no negative connotations. Just a grown man wishing he could go back to his childhood years. AMAZING!! & I love it <3

Great song | Reviewer: Mooglee | 12/12/07

Amazing groove in this tune...the bass and electric piano stuff going on in here is just incredible. I have to say, from a pianist's perspective, Stevie plays a lot of black keys...I imagine it's more tactile to do so since he's blind. The main chords of the song are E-flat minor and A-flat major.

Great artist as well...sure, he's had some garbage songs, but show me an artist who hasn't, and I'll show you someone who hasn't been around long enough.

Why can Stevie say what Imus gets fired for? | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/28/07

Imus got fired for saying Nappy Headed Ho's.....

Hmm.... Rappers say "Ho" all day long, and it is heard in thousands of rap songs.....

Imus says a tasteless comment, yet one that should not warrant being fired for....

The race baiting Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton trumpeted for Imus being fired...

These race baiters should be shouted down for derailing race relations in this country. Surely there are worse things going on in America that deserve attention....

Also, why is it that when blacks commit crimes against whites, the media does their best to minimize it?

Yet, when a white person commits a crime it is front page news for months, or even years?

America needs to wake up, and denounce Jessie Hi-Jackson and Al Sharpton.

They are nothing but skum.
