You go squeeze in your dress and go and strap
on your boots
I'm going to sharpen my nails and primp up real cute
I'm going to smoke up a storm and step into the night
I'm getting ready to burn, I'm getting ready to fly
I said hey, are you shooting to kill?
Hey, would I tell you a lie?
We'll be slamming tequilas, popping hydrogen
And lose the coils and the kinks that are wrecking my life
Give me a drink, don't be talking so much
You're a pain in the butt
How can I think when you puke up your guts?
I'll be juiced in this stuff
(Yeah) We'll be wired all night
(Yeah) We hit the high life
Watch me now
You blew jellyface Joe and Pedro the pimp
I'm as hard as a brick, I hope I never go limp
Is the earthquake shaking? Is there going to be war?
Tell the National Guard to mind the grocery store
I said, hey, and I don't give a hoot
Hey, I need some earthly delights
I'll be drowning my sorrows, banging my box
Till the sirens start singing and I'm ready to fly
I'll be kicked in the nuts
Yes, the high, high, high, high, high life
Wild, wild, wild nights
Yeah high, high, high, high, high life
That was my idea (to start the record with more familiar-sounding songs). I supposed you could start it with something more unusual. But sometimes it's good to start with things that are more familiar and go off slightly, rather than starting off weird and going straight later.
