I've got a friend who wears go-go boots to Sunday School 
We used to sit and drink pink champagne on a tin roof 
Ridin' it out in a Thunderbird 
Singin' out loud, every single word of "Jack & Diane"
Tryin' to pretend there was no rules 
Kissin' on boys and sneakin' in bars 
Tryin' to get a glimpse of who we are 
We weren't wild, but we weren't far 
She said, "Thelma and Louise, you got nothin' on me"
And you call, tell ole James Dean to get in line 
Thanks to Elvis and Kurt Cobain, the world will never be the same 
You've got to make history one day at a time 
She graduated in 1987 
We were gonna make a break for it together 
Headed out to Hollywood 
Where the stars are bright and the weather's good 
But she changed her mind 
Went back to the 7-11 
She went and married the football star 
Had few kids and works real hard 
It ain't wild but it ain't far 
She said, "Thelma and Louise you got nothin' on me"
And you call, tell ole James Dean to get in line 
Thanks to Elvis and Kurt Cobain, the world will never be the same 
You've got to make history one day at a time 

Hey, Thelma and Louise, you got nothin' on me 
And you call, tell ole James Dean to get in line 
Thanks to Jesus and John Wayne the world will never be the same 
You've gotta make history one day at a time 
Like John Lennon and Kennedy
I'm with them yeah, 'cause I believe 
You gotta make history one day at a time
