Runnin’ for the Red Light (I Gotta Life)

Madder than a mad man and bored to the c-c-core
Minute hand crawling, can’t take it anymore
Future’s up the highway, I gotta get away
I’m gonna take a little trip and find a Tijuana stray

I got the time to take it
I got the balls to break it
Gotta a car that it’ll make it

South of the border—don’t drink the water…

Gonna have a good time tonight
Crazy from the heat and runnin’ for the red light
Oh señorita, have two tequila
Love seeker—Lord the will is gettin’ weaker

Gonna have a good time tonight
Burnin’ with the fever and runnin’ for the red light
She ain’t a teacher, she ain’t a preacher
Just so close to holy that you’re runnin’ just to reach her

Time bomb is tickin’, my head’s about to bust
Need some personal attention or I swear I’m gonna rust
Gonna find a little place, no one will tell you what to do
I tell her I’m a rebel, she says, Yea, without a clue

Just need some understanding
A girl who ain’t demanding
Who ain’t afraid to fake it

South of the border—don’t drink the water…

Gonna have a good time tonight
Crazy from the heat and runnin’ for the red light
Oh señorita, have two tequila
Love seeker—Lord the will is gettin’ weaker

Gonna have a good time tonight
Burnin’ with the fever and runnin’ for the red light
She ain’t a teacher, she ain’t a preacher
Just so close to holy that you’re runnin’ just to reach her....

Need some understanding
A girl who ain’t demanding
A little bad behavior, she’s gonna be my saviour

My knees are shakin’
My back is breakin’
Oh mama mia—ah! Señorita!

Gonna have a good time tonight
Crazy from the heat and runnin’ for the red light
Oh señorita, have two tequila
Love seeker—Lord the will is gettin’ weaker

Gonna have a good time tonight
Burnin’ with the fever and runnin’ for the red light
She ain’t a teacher, she ain’t a preacher
Just so close to holy that you’re runnin’ just to reach her

Ha—it’s all right

Gonna have a good time tonight
Crazy from the heat and runnin’ for the red light
Oh señorita, have some tequila
Need sneakers—Lord the will is gettin’ weaker

Gonna have a good time tonight
Burnin’ with the fever and runnin’ for the red light
Just heard the bell that got me outta hell
I got a girl—I gotta life....
