"Seventeen" as written by Aimee Mayo, William Luther and Craig Lindsey....
Back seat of her daddy's car
I was tryin' not to go too far
Kept thinkin' 'bout the words the preacher man said
Lightning flashed across the sky
I saw love in a young girl's eyes
And that's a look you never forget

Seventeen
Only comes once in a lifetime
Don't it just fly by wild and free
Goin' anyway the wind blew baby
Seventeen
Livin' on crazy dreams
Rock and roll and faded blue jeans
And standin' on the edge of everything
Seventeen

Legs hangin' off the bayou bridge
Feedin' fish potato chips
And talkin' 'bout the mysteries of the universe
Yeah the world was somewhere else
We had the summer all to ourselves
And the stars went off like fireworks

Seventeen
Only comes once in a lifetime
Don't it just fly by wild and free
Goin' anyway the wind blew baby
Seventeen
Livin' on crazy dreams
Rock and roll and faded blue jeans
And standin' on the edge of everything
Seventeen

Seventeen
Only comes once in a lifetime
Well don't it just fly by wild and free
Goin' anyway the wind blew baby
Seventeen
Livin' on crazy dreams
Rock and roll and faded blue jeans
And standin' on the edge of everything
Seventeen
Yeah seventeen
Sweet seventeen

    General Comment"The world was somewhere else.
    We had the summer all to ourselves."

    Best part of the song. It completely sums it up. While in the midst of your capricious youth, those endless summers, rarely do you stop to worry about the world. You're living in the moment, lazily passing the days, discovering girls ... just having a good time.

    And yeah, it only comes once in a lifetime.
