On Borrowed Time

Yeah I was hangin' with this pretty lady
Who was kind of a little bit shady
She asked me to buy her a drink
Yeah I didn't have time to think
We drove out to this sleazy bar
We didn't have to go too far
We stepped on in and had a seat
I knew I was in for one hell of a treat

I'm living on borrowed time
I've never had me a dime
I'm real lucky to breath this air
To give a damn or even care
I've lived on a blasting rocket
Pulled a rabbit from my pocket
You know I'll be just fine
I'm living on borrowed time

She broke a bottle over my head
Left me on the floor for dead
She took the cash from my shirt
Left me laying face in the dirt
She stole my keys and then my car
Then she peeled off from that bar
Someone said go into the light
But that wasn't going to happen that night


When I came to my head was aching
My body heaved my hands were shaking
Some long haired mutha with a black toothed grin
Said hay man it looks like you never win
That fine lady just busted your chops
But don't worry slick we called the cops
She won't get far 'cause we got the plates
So sit back pal and life will be great

Yeah the cops got in a high speed chase
To catch that chick with the pretty face
She wrapped my car around a tree
Spread her brains for all to see
Anyone there said what a shame
She must have been one crazy dame
Now she's gone and yet I am fine
I must be living on borrowed time

Highly amusing
It starts with the pic, then continues with the rockin' music. Much better than a poke in the eye.
