Song Description

LIFE IS JUST DESTINY AND FATE - BETTER TO LIVE ONE DAY LIKE A LION THAN A THOUSAND DAYS LIKE A SHEEP

Story Behind the Song

STORY BEHIND THE SONG: - I was like most young boys, My mom used to say, "he's only got two speeds, full speed ahead or sound asleep" My dad was a US Marine, a real disciplined and controlled kind of guy, which is not to say that he wasnt creative too ,

Lyrics

When I was five-years-old, I had a green pedal car, I'd race it down the hall. / My Daddy'd say "Son, woncha please slow it down, before you kill us all" / My momma'd say "He's just his Daddy's boy, two speeds are all that he knows, / Full Speed Ahead or Sound Asleep that's how my story goes.

When I turned nine I got a brand new bike and man, she was really neat / Bright cherry-red with a chrome sissy bar and a big long banana seat / I pedal real hard, get up to full speed and throw her into a turn / Slam on the brakes, leave a big skid mark, man, smell that rubber burn.

'CAUSE I'M ONE OF THOSE WHO KNOWS THAT LIFE'S JUST DESTINY AND FATE / SO, I STEP ON THE GAS AND GIVE IT ALL I'VE GOT, I'M NOT ONE TO HESITATE / AND MY DADDY USED TO SAY TO ME "SON, LOOK BEFORE YOU LEAP" / BUT, I'D RATHER LIVE ONE DAY LIKE A LION, THAN A THOUSAND DAYS LIKE A SHEEP

Now, I'm all grown up, I've got hot rod Chevy, racin' down the inter-state / My girl says "baby, please slow down, let's not test your fate" / And I say darlin' it'll be alright, we're gonna be just fine. / Full speed ahead is how I live my life, I sure hope you don't mind.

Now when I get older, and I'm not sure I will, but if I do, I'll be driving fast / 'Cause, life's too short for the slow lane baby, I'm steppin' on the gas / Full speed ahead, is all I know and there's things I don't wanna miss / So, here we go baby, hang on tight, Hold my beer and watch this!

'CAUSE I'M ONE OF THOSE WHO KNOWS THAT LIFE'S JUST DESTINY AND FATE / SO, I STEP ON THE GAS AND GIVE IT ALL I'VE GOT, I'M NOT ONE TO HESITATE / AND I KNOW THAT THERE ARE THOSE WHO SAY, LOOK BEFORE YOU LEAP" / BUT, I'D RATHER LIVE ONE DAY LIKE A LION, THAN A THOUSAND DAYS LIKE A SHEEP

YEAH, I'D RATHER LIVE ONE DAY LIKE A LION, THAN A THOUSAND DAYS LIKE A SHEEP
