"Wild & Young" as written by and James/johnston Michael....
I fell in love with a southern girl
I gave her wings
But she don't wanna fly no more

Slow it down
Slow it down

She wants a ring
And she's slamming the door
"But baby don't cry
Whatcha in a hurry for?"

Slow it down
Slow it down

We are wild and young
We have just begun

So slow it down you move a little too fast
You take a deep breath, you make this last
These should be the best days of your life
So right, so right, tonight

I said we are wild and young
Oh, we are wild and young

Well, her free fall came a little out of the blue
What happened to the days of doing what we wanted to do?

Slow it down
Slow it down

Well, we should kick back
And getta have a little fun
Two kids getting high
Have a couple beers in the sun

Slow it down
Slow it down

While we are wild and young, yeah
Oh, we have just begun

I said we are wild and young
Oh, we are wild and young
We are wild and young
I said we are wild and young

Go on, slow it down you move a little too fast
You take a deep breath, you're making it last
I say that these should be the best days of your life
So right, so right, tonight

I said we are wild and young
I said we are wild and young
Oh, we are wild and young

    General CommentGreat Song, used by WWE. To me he's dating this girl and she wants to take it to the next step but he doesn't want to. He's young and wants to enjoy life. I could picture this happening around a graduation of high school or college.

    General CommentI love this song! I first heard it a few years ago on the tv show Greek and I've been waiting since then for it to be officially released!
    Like emnrenegade31 said it seems to be about high school/college times and enjoying life.
    It's such a fun and catchy song I'm surprised it's not more popular yet. Plus the band has some other great songs too!

    General CommentI agree with both emnrengade31 and strbrstcyl, I think the girl wants to get married but the guy wants to wait and he's young and wants to enjoy his life.

    Whatever it means, it's still such an amazing song. It was perfect for how WWE used it, in my opinion.
