Hide And Seek lyrics

me and all the kids from the neighbourhood
we play out in the street all summer long
rule was we had to go home at nite when the street lights came on
we were oblivious to the rest of the world
we hold up the cars in the street
we always played boys against girls
and both sides would cheat
strange men would stop their cars at the curb
