Back in my TAXI days, there was a listing asking for a song for a young artist who didn’t want to have a song about old age or divorce but about fun. Just think girls, girls, fast car and girls! This was my attempt… Unfortunately I could never finish the 2nd verse so I never submitted it. So here it is…somewhat delayed…

Verse 1
Don’t play me songs about old age
About divorce, the depression or dyin’ young
Don’t wanna hear about marital problems
Not when I’m tryna have some fun

Don’t tell me stories ‘bout the good old days
If you wanna make me feel good inside
Give me Rodeo bull ridin’
Beau Duke hood slidin’
Stuff that makes me feel alive

Build
Cause every day I get another day older
Can’t spend life lookin’ over your shoulder

Chorus
So give me girls, give me girls
Fast cars and girls
Hot senoritas every time
I’m livin’ life in the fast lane
Gonna lay it on the line
You can shoot me when I’m old and I’m done
Right now I’m crazy, I’m invincible, I’m young!

Verse 2
Don’t spend your whole life chasing money
It’s just the root of all evil (so they say)
Just earn enough to keep you footloose
That’s my philosophy anyway

Just give me an open top roadster out on the freeway
Two senoritas and the wind in my hair
It’s my plan to stay free
Of all responsibility
Livin’ life without a care

Build
Cause every day I get another day older
Can’t spend life lookin’ over your shoulder

Chorus
So give me girls, give me girls
Fast cars and girls
Hot senoritas every time
I’m livin’ life in the fast lane
Gonna lay it on the line
You can shoot me when I’m old and I’m done
Right now I’m crazy, I’m invincible, I’m young!

Bridge
[missing]

Guitar Break
[missing]

Don’t give up at the first hurdle
No that ain’t how the west was won
So stop cryin’ in your beer
Get your butt on over here
These two fine ladies are just looking for some FUN!

Chorus
So give me girls, give me girls
Fast cars and girls
Hot senoritas every time
I’m livin’ life in the fast lane
Gonna lay it on the line
You can shoot me when I’m old and I’m done
Right now I’m crazy, I’m invincible, I’m just plain dumb!
