18 and Life lyrics:


Ricky was a young boy
He had a heart of stone
Lived 9 to 5 and he worked his fingers to the bone
Just barely out of school, came from the edge of town
Fought like a switchblade so no one could take him down, no
He had no money, oooh no good at home
He walked the streets a soldier and he fought the world alone
And now it's

CHORUS (x2)
18 and life, you got it
18 and life, you know
Your crime is time
And it's 18 and life to go

Tequila in his heartbeat
His veins burned gasoline
It kept his motor running but it never kept him clean
They say he loved adventure, "Ricky's the wild one"
He married trouble, had a courtship with a gun
Bang, bang, shoot 'em up - the party never ends
You can't think of dying when the bottle's your best friend
And now it's

CHORUS

"Accidents will happen" they all heard Ricky say
He fired his six-shot to the wind that sure blew a child away

CHORUS
