Loose Cannons
© 2003 Will Stanley

We were a couple of loose cannons, young and wild and free
Drivin real fast cars, hangin out in bars, with no responsibilities.
If we had kept it up that way, I think we'd both be dead by now
But somehow it seemed all right to just carouse all night
And we'd figure out the rest somehow.

Remember handin' those two girls that stupid line
How we were racecar drivers tryin' to unwind
We impressed them with our derring-do
Speedin? up Notchview Hill at 82
And when we got to the top, those girls knew what to do.

With a couple of loose cannons, who were young and wild and free
Drivin' real fast cars, hangin out in smokey bars, with no responsibilities.
You know if we had kept it up, I'm sure we'd both be dead by now
But somehow it seemed all right to just carouse all night
We'd figure out the rest somehow.

My folks thought we were headin' for the clink
All we seemed to do was smoke and drink
Days would pass, I wouldn't see my bed
One time they called the cops, thinkin' I was dead
And to this very day, my pa just shakes his head.

About a couple of loose cannons, young and wild and free
Drivin' real fast cars, always drinkin' in bars, with no responsibilities.
I'm sure if we had kept it up, we'd both be dead by now
Somehow it seemed all right to just carouse all night
We'd figure out the rest somehow.

We didn?t mean to upset anyone
Just a couple of kids goin? crazy havin? fun.

And now old pal of mine, I'll say goodbye
I've gotta get back to the wife and our small fry
It's been awful good to talk to you
To sit and reminisce and drink a beer or two
But now the real world waits and there's no room for me and you

To be a couple of loose cannons, cuz we're not young and wild and free
We drive stodgy cars, and don't hang out in bars, we've got responsibilities.
I'm sure that we both love our lives, but when we look back now
To when it seemed all right to just dance all night
We really miss those days somehow.
Cuz we'd carouse all night until the morning light....
And it all seemed just right somehow.
