I got a brand new pair of roller skates you got a brand new key.....
Do you have great memories of roller skating as a child? I do.
I can remember having a pair of roller skates like these. I hung the key on a string around my neck after fitting the skates to my Keds sneakers. Then I would whip up and down the on my street. I loved it. The sidewalks were a bit bumpy so it would kind of rattle your teeth, and invariably one of the skates would come off resulting in lots of skinned knees and elbows. Back in those days no one had heard of protective pads. It was a booming business for Bandaids.
Well, I never got the cute outfit or the spiffy roller skates, but after my family moved to Canada I took up and got some really cool skates and a sweet little wool skirt.
Summer wouldn't have been the same without roller skating and an orange popsicle.
