Rascal Flatts- Life is a Highway

Whooo umm yeah

Life's like a road that you travel on

When there's one day here and the next day gone

Sometimes you bend and sometimes you stand

Sometimes you turn your back to the wind

There's a world outside every darkened door

Where blues won't haunt you anymore

Where brave are free and lovers soar

Come ride with me to the distant shore

We won't hesitate

To break down the garden gate

There's not much time left today

Life is a highway

I wanna ride it all night long

If you're going my way

I wanna drive it all night long

Gimme gimme gimme gimme yeah

Through all these cities and all these towns

It's in my blood and it's all around

I love you now like I loved you then

This is the road and these are the hands

From Mozambique to those Memphis nights

The Khyber Pass to Vancouver's lights

Knock me down and back up again

You're in my blood I'm not a lonely man

There's no load I can't hold

A road so rough this I know

I'll be there when the light comes in

Tell 'em we're survivors

Life is a highway

I wanna ride it all night long

If you're going my way

I wanna drive it all night long

Gimme gimme gimme gimme yeah

Life is a highway

I wanna ride it all night long

If you're going my way

I wanna drive it all night long

Gimme gimme gimme gimme yeah

There was a distance between you and I

A misunderstanding once

But now we look in the eye

There ain't no load that I can't hold

A road so rough this I know

I'll be there when the light comes in

Tell 'em we're survivors

Life is a highway

I wanna ride it all night long

If you're going my way

I wanna drive it all night long

Gimme gimme gimme gimme yeah

Life is a highway

I wanna ride it all night long

If you're going my way

I wanna drive it all night long

Gimme gimme gimme gimme yeah

Life is a highway

I wanna ride it all night long

If you're going my way

I wanna drive it all night long

Gimme gimme gimme gimme yeah

Lyrics off of Google Play Music,

Life is a Highway, the farther you go the more places its takes you

It's close to midnight and something evil's lurking in the dark

Under the moonlight you see a sight that almost stops your heart

You try to scream, but terror takes the sound before you make it

You start to freeze as horror looks you right between the eyes

You're paralyzed

'Cause this is thriller, thriller at night

And no one's gonna save you from the beast about to strike

You know it's thriller, thriller night

You're fighting for your life inside a killer thriller, tonight

You hear the door slam and realize there's nowhere left to run

You feel the cold hand and wonder if you'll ever see the sun

You close your eyes and hope that this is just imagination

But all the while you hear a creature creepin' up behind

You're out of time

'Cause this is thriller, thriller at night

There ain't no second chance against the thing with forty eyes

You know it's thriller, thriller night

You're fighting for your life inside a killer thriller tonight

Night creatures call

And the dead start to walk in their masquerade

There's no escapin' the jaws of the alien this time

(They're open wide)

This is the end of your life

They're out to get you; there's demons closing in on every side

They will possess you unless you change that number on your dial

Now is the time for you and I to cuddle close together, yeah

All through the night I'll save you from the terror on the screen

I'll make you see

That it's a thriller, thriller night

'Cause I can thrill you more than any ghoul

Would ever dare try

This is thriller, thriller night

So let me hold you tight and share a killer, diller chiller

Thriller here tonight

That it's a thriller, thriller night

'Cause I can thrill you more than any ghoul

Could ever dare try

This is thriller, thriller night

Girl so let me hold you tight and share a killer, thriller

I'm gonna thrill ya tonight

Darkness falls across the land

The midnight hour is close at hand

Creatures crawl in search of blood

To terrorize y'awl's neighborhood

And whosoever shall be found

Without the soul for getting down

Must stand and face the hounds of hell

And rot inside a corpse's shell

The foulest stench is in the air

The funk of forty thousand years

And grizzly ghouls from every tomb

Are closing in to seal your doom

And though you fight to stay alive

Your body starts to shiver

For no mere mortal can resist

The evil of the thriller

Rod Temperton, Thriller, Producer Quincy Jones, recorded April to November 1982, released on November 30, 1982

Lyrics off of Google Play Music

Life is a Thriller, expect the unexpected.

Bawitdaba, da bang, da dang diggy diggy

Diggy, said the boogie, said up jump the boogie [x4]

My name is Kiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiid

Kid Rock

Bawitdaba da bang da bang diggy diggy diggy

Shake the boogie said up jump the boogie (Love someone)

Bawitdaba da bang da bang diggy diggy diggy

Shake the boogie said up jump the boogie (Come on)

And this is for the questions that don't have an answer

The midnight glancers, and the topless dancers

The can of freaks, cars packed with speakers

The G's with the forty's and the chicks with beepers

The northern lights and the Southern Comfort

And it don't even matter if your veins are punctured

All the crackheads, the critics, the cynics

And all my heroes at the methadone clinics

All you bastards at the I.R.S

For the crooked cops and the cluttered desks

For the shots of Jack and the caps of meth

Half pints of love and a fifth of stress

All the hookers that are tricking out in Hollywood

And for my hoods of the world misunderstood

I said it's all good and it's all in fun

Now get in the pit and try to love someone

Bawitdaba da bang da bang diggy diggy diggy

Shake the boogie said up jump the boogie (Love someone)

Bawitdaba da bang da bang diggy diggy diggy

Shake the boogie said up jump the boogie (Come on)

For the time bombs clicking and the heads they hang

All the gangs gettin' money and the heads they bang - bang

Wild mustangs, the porno flicks

All my homies in the county in cell block six

The grits when there ain't enough eggs to cook

And to D.B. Cooper and the money he took

You can look for answers but that ain't fun

Now get in the pit and try to love someone

Bawitdaba da bang da bang diggy diggy diggy

Shake the boogie said up jump the boogie (Love someone)

Bawitdaba da bang da bang diggy diggy diggy

Shake the boogie said up jump the boogie (Come on)

Live life while you can.

Vroom, Vroom, Vroom goes the Ford

Clink, Clank, Click, Clank goes the Chevy

The Ford runs like a top

The Chevy always seems to flop.
