Rodney Atkins – 15 Minutes

Het is hier op USCM al vaker aangehaald: Rodney Atkins maakt regelmatig gebruik van zeer vermakelijke teksten. Zo ook in deze song 15 Minutes van zijn album It’s America uit 2009.

Songtekst:

I got a call from my best friend this evening
He said he wasn’t going out with us guys on Friday night
Yeah he was gonna change
For his new-found flame
To keep her satisfied
I just laughed and said ‘Hey man
Well go ahead and try’

‘Cause I gave up smokin’,
Women and drinkin’ last night
And it was the worst
15 minutes of my life

Now I’ve heard it said
That too much fun’ll kill you
And I’ll be the first to tell you
That I don’t wanna die
Too many twelve-ounce curls, pretty girls
And parties ain’t advised
Well take it from me
Don’t believe all that hype

‘Cause I gave up smokin’,
Women and drinkin’ last night
And it was the worst
15 minutes of my life
That’s right

You can get hit by a truck tomorrow
So you might as well raise a little hell tonight

‘Cause I gave up smokin’,
Women and drinkin’ last night
And it was the worst
15 minutes of my life
Man it was the worst
15 minutes of my life
That’s right

Never again…
