Lyrics

He was a hard headed man
He was brutally handsome y'all she was terminally pretty
She held him up and he held her for ransom
In the heart of the cold cold city
He had a nasty reputation as a cruel dude
They said he was ruthless said he was crude
They had one thing in common they were good in bed
She'd say faster faster the lights are turnin' red
Life in the fast lane
Surely make you lose your mind
Life in the fast lane
Eager for action and hot for the game
The coming attraction the drop of a name

They knew all the right people they took all the right pills
They threw outrageous parties they paid heavily bills
There were lines on the mirror lines on her face
She pretended not to notice she was caught up in the race
Out every evening until it was light
He was too tired to make it she was too tired to fight about it
Life in the fast lane
Surely make you lose your mind

Life in the fast lane uh-huh

Life in the fast lane

Everything all the time
Life in the fast lane uh-huh

Blowin' and burnin' blinded by thirst
They didn't see the stop sign took a turn for the worst
She said listen baby you can hear them engines ring

We've been up and down this highway haven't seen a goddam thing
He said call the doctor think I'm gonna crash
But the doctor say he's comin' you gotta pay him cash

They went rushin' down that freeway messed around and got lost
They didn't know they were just dyin' to get off
And it was life in the fast lane
Surely make you lose your mind
Life in the fast lane
Life in the fast lane
Everything all the time
Life in the fast lane uh huh
Life in the fast lane
Life in the fast lane
Thank you thank you very much
Quite a thrill for us veterans tonight to be up here playing together again
I wanna thank all you guys it's nice to be back playing with you guys it's a lot of fun
And we hope y'all had a good time
Uh thanks for helping us get through this first one
It's all downhill from here
And we'll leave you with a nice memory here
