When people wore pajamas and lived life slow
When laws were stern and justice stood
And people were behavin' like they ought ta good
Must had been a good and boring life.
“Pajamas” could also refer to a brief period of time in NYC where hip hop fashion was to wear pajamas (circa 1985). This was also a time just before crack addiction hit NY hard.
