I'm wearin' a
I ride a
It's tickling my fancy

I got some wild, wild life
About some wild, wild life
She's got some wild, wild life
Living wild, wild life
I wrestle, with your conscience
Sittin' on a window sill

He bought some wild, wild life
He got some wild, wild life
He's doin' wild, wild life
Living wild, wild life
Peace of mind?
Thought control!

Things fall apart, it's scientific
Sleeping on the interstate oh oh oh
Checkin' in, checkin' out! Uh, huh!
Spending all of my money and time oh oh oh
We want to go, where we go, where we go oh oh oh
I know it, that's how we start oh oh oh
Take a picture, here in the daylight oh oh
You've grown so tall, you've grown so fast oh oh oh
And I know that's the way you like it oh, ho!
