An ode by Jack Parow.

So it’s not really an ode but rather a sentimental ditty by the man for all his English fans. The song will feature on his new album, Jack Parow. Enjoy!

I Miss:

I miss doing cut and paste projects for school

I miss pollyotters and having braais by the pool

I miss Dinoryders, Bravestar and Bionic Six

I miss Cheers, Arende, Who’s the Boss and Wings

I miss puzzles with mom and playing with play dough

tell me “where in the world is carmen sandiego”

I miss giving girls lifts home on my poegie

I miss the days in Marc’s car of just smoking and cruising

I miss the A Team and Murder She Wrote

I miss the days when I was still kak scared to smoke

I miss the days when special effects were hand made

when Francios Pienaar still played rugby and didn’t eat Lays

there’s so much I miss from the old days

there’s so much that I learnt from the old ways

Another kid fokken raised by the 80′s

Kytie Kytie, jy was nie net n mytie

I was raise by girls in outfits and kop doeke

kaal bolyf, kla oortyd en kaal fokken voete

Dallas, Dynasty en Agter elke man

Kringe innie bos en Ballade vir n enkeling

Voortrekker camps and CSV kampe

Mufasa, Aladin, Bambi and Thumper

Klei lat, Swart Kat and self-built tree houses

no shoes, no worries, play holes in my trousers

there’s a lot of good things that happened back then

but I cant keep going on about way back when

so that’s enough of that, no way no how..

Cause I’ll miss all the shit that im doing right now


yours in musical madness
