about

This song was written November 2011 (when Jendayi was 13).

lyrics

Let's forget about the boys for a sec.
Think about the things you liked when you were nine, but that's too old.
Eight, we could go younger.
Seven, I'm just giving you credit.
So it's six, six was fine, six was great,
But you turned seven and then you turned eight.
Then you turned nine, and it was over.

[Chorus]
Oh, oh-ah-oh, oh-ah-oh.
It seems so long ago.
When we changed from high to low.
And I don't know,
Why

Let's forget about the clothes for a sec.
Think about the things you wore when you were four.
Princess galore.
Now it's looks,
Now it's fat,
Now it's "Oh my gosh I just can't go out in that."
And that's the fact.

[Chorus]
Oh, oh-ah-oh, oh-ah-oh.
It seems so long ago.
When we changed from high to low.
And I don't know,
Why

Let's forget about the makeup set.
Think about when all that stuff was just for fun.

Now you wear it everyday,
Cause you're afraid someone will go up to you and say,
"Are you ok?"

[Chorus]
Oh, oh-ah-oh, oh-ah-oh.
It seems so long ago.
When we changed from high to low.
And I don't know,

What happened to all,
The carelessness.
No insecurities.
Be what you want to be.
And now that's disappeared.
You act the way you do because they say so.
Oooh - ooooh - ahhhhh oh!

[Chorus]
Oh, oh-ah-oh, oh-ah-oh.
It seems too long ago!
When we changed from high to low.
And I don't know.
I don't know.
What was wrong with six?
What was wrong with six?
What was wrong with six?
Oh no.
What was wrong with six?
What was wrong with six?
