  • I know it's a drag, I know it's a grind
    I know that a dollar ain't worth a dime
    Just trying to keep up with the Joneses at the end of the block
    I know you get tired, I know you get down
    I know you get sick of this soul sucking town
    But let's make a little lemonade, if lemons is all we got

    'Cause I'm stuck on you, you're stuck on me
    I never gotta wonder where my honey be
    I ain't savin' all my sugar for a Saturday night
    Seven days a week I got an appetite
    The sun sets like a tangerine
    Let's find a road we've never seen
    Don't waste another mile or a minute not kissin' me
    Life is short, make it sweet

    Open sky, glimpse of heaven, take the top off the CJ-7
    Let that surfside Santa Ana wind mess up your hair
    And let that windshield frame the ocean
    Radio keep coast-to-coastin'
    If we don't get where we're going, baby I don't care
    I'm already there

    'Cause I'm stuck on you, you're stuck on me
    I never gotta wonder where my honey be
    I ain't savin' all my sugar for a Saturday night
    Seven days a week I got an appetite
    The sun sets like a tangerine
    Let's find a road we've never seen
    Don't waste another mile or a minute not kissin' me
    Life is short, make it sweet

    Days will be long but the years will fly right by
    We'll never be as young as we are tonight
    Baby, ain't that right? Yeah

    'Cause I'm stuck on you, you're stuck on me
    I never gotta wonder where my honey be
    I ain't savin' all my sugar for a Saturday night
    Seven days a week I got an appetite
    The sun sets like a tangerine
    Let's find a road we've never seen
    Don't waste another mile or a minute not kissin' me
    Life is short, make it sweet

    Life is short, make it sweet
    Oh yeah yeah, yeah yeah Writer/s: Brad Tursi, Geoff Sprung, Matthew Thomas Ramsey, Shane McAnally, Trevor Rosen, Whit Sellers
