      About "Going On Eighteen"

      Lyrics for Dusty Drake - "Going On Eighteen"

      Mama preached to me, boy be a kid just as long as you can
      But I was hell-bent and bound and determined to be my old man
      I was ready to drive and I wanted a job
      Hungry to chase my dreams
      Way back when I was twelve years old going on eighteen

      Those four years of college I stretched into six and a half
      If I woke up in time after parties you'd catch me in class
      I moved back home, stayed out, slept in
      'Til one Monday morning I heard Daddy scream
      You're twenty-four years old boy, going on eighteen

      [Chorus]
      Hey all I'm dying to do is to live
      Just tryin' to take what the day has to give
      Everyone wants but they don't always get what's expected of me
      They say act your age, don't break no mold
      Be young when you're young and old when you're old
      They say I'm in the prime of my life, hell if I know what that means
      In the back of my mind I'm still going on eighteen

      Got the wife, got the kids, got the job, got the cars and the house
      In life's little rulebook it falls under "all settled down"
      But give a handful of friends a handful drinks
      It's like riding a time machine
      A bunch of thirty-something-year-old guys going on eighteen

      [Chorus]

      Now I preach to my boy be a kid just as long as you can
      But he's hell-bent and determined
      To be his old man
