Time Flies

  • Had another birthday, could've been the worst day
    I ever had
    Got a little drunk, and I fell into a funk
    And I woke up sad
    Looked into the mirror
    There were lines around my eyes

    Time flies when you're having fun
    Time flies when you live on the run
    The harder I go, the more I realize
    Time flies

    Life is moving fast and I'm running out of gas
    Time ain't on my side
    I'm still in the race and I'm barely keeping pace
    But it's worth the ride
    Waiting round the corner
    There's another sweet surprise

    Time flies when you're having fun
    Time flies when you live on the run
    The harder I go, the more I realize
    Time flies

    Hey yeah, hey yeah
    Time flies
    Hey yeah, hey yeah
    Time flies

    Some sad day, they'll be taking me away
    But I won't be dead
    'Cause even when I'm gone
    This stupid dance song will be in your head
    I'll be looking down with a twinkle in my eyes

    Time flies when you're having fun
    Time flies when you live on the run
    The harder I go, the more I realize
    Time flies when you're having fun
    Time flies when you live on the run
    The harder I go, the more I realize
    Time flies
