iRemember: Dragon Lady

July 2, 2013

I remember when

We had REAL Grandmothers, they were old and mean
Unbutton my fly T shirts and 501 Jeans

Girls wore leg warmers cuz flashdance hit
Jennifer Beals was BAD and  she STILL is the shit

When that water came down?



I use to watch
Videos and in Grade school I had a Flav clock

There was no hating you were “on somebody’s jock”
Cept for RUN DMC MTV only played rock

I wanted a Calculator watch or the all black swatch
Saturday Morning’s watched Schoolhouse rock

The Bill was on Capitol Hill
Atari was ill
Played Frogger and Q*Bert all day
Never sat still

Electric football came with just 2 teams
Captain Kangaroo had Mr. Green Jeans

Use to rock the Hammer Pants and multi color Skidz
Me and the fellas collected Garbage Pail Kids

Tongue tied Tim and

Rappin Ron then

Leaky Lindsay

and Adam Bomb


Voltron came on I thought it was the illest
Charlene lookin sexy as hell Kissin Willis


Use to watch Casper the friendly ghost
Crunched Cinnamon Toast
Oatmeal by Quaker Oats

Wore Moccasin boats
Made Root beer floats

High school had the black Triple Fat Goose coat

Zap it, Entertech, and Zebra guns
Capri Suns
On my recorder played Hot Crossed Buns

Sounded like 3 blind mice
Use to roll and shoot dice
Thriller came out with Mike and Vincent Price

Girls watched Rainbow Brite
Ate Mike n Ikes
Auto Man…Max headroom… Miami Vice

Fat Oprah hit the TV from the Chi
A different world, who didn’t want Jasmine Guy?

NBC, mannnn those shows were the best
It was 227, Golden Girls, Empty Nest

Lamar with the Bandanna pledged Tri-Lambda
On Diff’rent Strokes Stan from Martin played Santa

Adele, and Nell Carter Gimme a Break
Theo And Cockroach’s teacher Mrs. Westlake

…called her Dragon Lady
Damn those were the 80’s
Shits crazy now…I feel bad for the babies.

    Good post. Who didn’t have that School House Rock going in their head when you had to recite the preamble to the constitution?

    Awesome stuff! Reading those rhymes about the good old days aka the best decade for pop culture entertainment. Always generate some great flashbacks and memories every time!
