Stevie Wonder Lyrics. 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 With 'Boy thought I told you not to go outside' Tryin' your best to bring the Water to your eyes Thinkin' it might stop her From whippin' your behind. This song tells about Stevie Wonder's younger days in 1950-1960s. He recalls those days with fondness even though he lived in poverty and had difficulties. The song was written after a Motown company picnic in 1976 where Stevie Wonder took part in contests and games. He felt that he rekindled his childhood that afternoon.

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, ooh Greeted at the back. door With, "Boy, thought I told you not to go outside" Trying your best to bring the water to your eyes Thinking it might stop her from whooping your behind. I wish those days could come back.

With 25 Grammy Awards, Stevie Wonder set the record for the most Grammys received by a male solo artist. His most successful album, Songs in the Key of Life, which includes iconic singles like "I Wish" and "As," forever solidified Stevie Wonder as a musical legend.
This is Stevie, so naturally that cut's anger is balanced by the ultra-buoyant "I Wish," "Sir Duke," and "Another Star. The 2000 reissue boasts radically improved remastered sound. This album is probably in the top 10 of every music fan in existence. It was the first album I fell in love with as a 15yo kid when it came out, and if it's not my all-time fave still, it's right near the top. It has everything. He never approached these heights again.
