Live fast, love hard, die young
Joe Allison - 1955

I wanna live fast, love hard, die young
and leave a beautiful memory.

I wanna live fast, love hard, die young
and leave a beautiful memory.
Don’t want slow walkin’ or sad singin’.
Let ’em have a jubilee.
I wanna leave a lot of happy women
a-thinkin’ pretty thoughts of me.
I wanna live fast, love hard, die young
and leave a beautiful memory.

I got a hot-rod car and a cowboy suit
and I really do get around.
I got a little black book and the gals look cute
and I know the name of ev’ry spot in town.

I wanna find ’em, fool ’em, leave ’em,
an’ let ’em do the same to me.
I wanna live fast, love hard, die young
and leave a beautiful memory.

I wanna live fast, love hard, die young
and leave a beautiful memory.
I’m a wampus cat let me grab my hat
and baby come along with me.
I wanna do some fancy steppin’.
I’m really goin’ on a spree.
I wanna live fast, love hard, die young
and leave a beautiful memory.

Now you may not approve of the things I do,
but that don’t bother me.
But don’t ever think you can tie me down.
I’m gonna stay footloose and fancy free.

So jump back, make tracks, move out,
an’ let the pretty gals with me.
I wanna live fast, love hard, die young
and leave a beautiful memory.
