"Living in Fast Foreward" as written by Melvern Rivers Ii Rutherford and David Lee Murphy....
The body's a temple; that's what we're told
I've treated this one like an old honky-tonk
Greasy cheeseburgers and cheap cigarettes
One day, they'll get me if they ain't got me yet

'Cause I'm living in fast forward
A hillbilly rock star out of control
I'm living in fast forward
Now I need to rewind real slow

My friends all grew up; they settled down
Built nice little houses on the outskirts of town
They work in their office, drive SUVs
They pray for their babies, and they worry 'bout me

'Cause I'm living in fast forward
A hillbilly rock star out of control
I'm living in fast forward
Now I need to rewind real slow

I'm always runnin'
Son-of-a-gunnin'
I've had a good time, it's true
But the way I've been goin'
It's time that I toned it
Down just a notch or two

Oh yeah

Well, I'm living in fast forward
A hillbilly rock star out of control
I'm living in fast forward
Now I need to rewind real slow

Yeah, I'm living in fast forward
A hillbilly rock star out of control
I'm living in fast forward
Now I need to rewind real slow

Yeah, I need to rewind real slow
Yeah, I still got some miles to go

    General CommentIt's a shame that there's only a period in live in which you can live like this - your body is gonna give in someday... "and they worry 'bout me" - good thing that living fast forward you managed to keep them your friends!

    General CommentOne never wants to live in fast forward because your friends will never be able to keep up with you. That's what is meant when Kenny wrote the line "they prey for their babies and worry 'bout me."
