18 Songs We All Sang Along To As Kids Even Though We Definitely Shouldn't Have

Damn, child me was wild.

1. We all loved to pretend that we understood heartache.

2. And we latched onto anything that sounded even just a little bit sad.

3. Honestly. Pretty much everything.

4. Like...were we ok?

Ne-Yo: And I'm so sick of love songs, so tired of tears. So done with wishing you were still here. Said I'm so sick of love songs, so sad and slow. So why can't I turn off the radio? 12 year old me: https://t.co/FYqUcxnI5i

5. Oh, we also thought we knew what turning up was.

6. And we tried to act like we were extremely knowledgable on sexual topics.

7. Especially when it came to super-specific things we actually had zero idea about.

Swedish House Mafia: I tell her, wear suspenders and some PVC and I’ll film it all up on my JVC 12 year old me:

8. To be fair, it was sometimes harder to decipher the artist's choice of words.

Gaga : Let’s have some fun, this beat is sick, I wanna take a ride on your disco stick 8 year old me :

9. And other times...I think we were just pretty blind to it all.

10. But most often, I just don't think we gave a fuck.

11. I mean, pretty much none of us had husbands or our own houses, but that didn't stop us.

P!nk: I guess I just lost my husband I don’t know where he went so I’m gonna drink my money I’m not gonna pay his r… https://t.co/zfqdHm3wPB

12. We honestly thought we understood cheating...

Beyoncé : RING THE ALARM IVE BEEN THROUGH THIS TOO LONG BUT I’LL BE DAMNED IF I SEE ANOTHER CHICK ON YO ARM 7 year old me : https://t.co/ZndqjcfW6C

13. And what relationship drama was.

14. Actually, damn. A lot of the time none of what we were singing made any sense at all.

Beyoncé: if I were a boy 12 year old me, also a boy: I THINK I COULD UNDERSTAAAAAND

15. But do you really think that stopped us? Nope.

16. Our little dramatic asses really thought we were IT.

17. Mum, I am so sorry for singing along to things I shouldn't have been.

“Girls call me jolly rancher cause I stay so hard you can suck me for long time oh mah gawd” 12 year old me:

18. But tbh, some things are never going to change.

“Honey came in & she caught me red handed creeping with the girl next door, picture this we were both butt naked banging on the bathroom floor” 7 year old me: https://t.co/gRieoKzkG2
