Don’t Last Long

We were hell bent on raising hell

Summer of ‘99

With fake IDs and time to kill

Ride, rebels, ride

We’re mustang crazy in a one-horse town

Swore we’d live forever, never slow down

Always racing, racing against the sun

Chorus:

Can’t steal from time

But we damn sure tried (try)

Full tilt boogie

Till the day we die

Gonna live, gonna love,

Gonna grab it all before it’s gone

Cuz, brother it don’t last long

That all seems so long ago

Like someone else’s life

Now we all got lawns to mow

Ride, John Deere, Ride

We’re carpool cowboys in our pick up trucks

Little league, football, and 4H club

Still racing, racing against that sun

Repeat Chorus

Bridge:

We can bitch and moan, we can scream and cry

But that river’s gonna run, till it all runs dry

Might as well jump in, have a crazy wild ride

Life ain’t nothing if it ain’t fun

Chorus:

Can’t steal from time

But we damn sure try

Full tilt boogie

Till the day we die

Gotta live, gotta love,

Gotta grab it all before it’s gone

Cuz, brother it don’t last long
