She's got a lot of issues
Like a good magazine
The kind you'd find under my bed
If you know what I mean
'Cause Mother would trip if she saw
the way that girl wears her clothes
to the L3 shows

I got my fingers crossed
She'll say "18"
Lie through lip-gloss
and say "18"
Tonight
Tonight you're the girl with the big date
And I've become the guy that I used to hate

She's never turned down
And she's never down twice
"Getting lucky" for her ain't luck
It's just naming a price
'cause Father, he bounced her around
And I got the rebound

I got my fingers crossed
She'll say "18"
Lie through lip-gloss
and say "18"
Tonight
Tonight you're the girl with the big date
And I've become the guy that I used to hate

Jacque, are you all right?
Does your face burn?
And do the black lights make your guts turn?
Jacque, are you all right?
Do your ears burn?
And do the black lights make your guts turn
Inside out? outside in
between
Between the dust and the stars
Say "18"

I got my fingers crossed
She'll say "18"
Lie through lip-gloss
and say "18"
Tonight

I got my fingers crossed
She'll say "18"
Lie through lip-gloss
and say "18"

Say "18"
Tonight
Say "18"
Tonight
Say "18"

    General CommentThis song is a satirical approach on the girls that go to their shows and constantly say things like, "OMG SHAWN I WANT YOU SO BADLYOMGOMG.. by the way, I'm only 13!"

    The girls really annoy the guys in the band.. in that they really hate them, but there are many bands out there who will go and have 'relations' with the groupies if they say they're 18. So, like I said: Satirical approach to it all.

    General Commentthis song is about when the boys were in Nappa or something like that (they talk about it on their DVD) and they had girlfriends that told them they were 18. even though some of them weren't. apparently justin's turned 18 while he was dating her.
