Where I come from in Kentucky  There was an old gray headed man
The day I left he said, Sonny 
Well, I know you got some big plans 

 Round here we all think you're something 
But out there that doesn't mean nothing  There ain't no free ride in the fast lane
For every ounce of pleasure 
There's a pound of pain
You better love it if you play this game
 Cause there ain't no free ride in the fast lane

I made my way to the city
And met a long-legged beauty queen
I thought she'd always be with me
But she played me like a slot machine 
Soon as I ran outta money
She said you're real cute but honey 

 There ain't no free ride in the fast lane
For every ounce of pleasure there's a pound of pain
You better love it if you play this game
 Cause there ain't no free ride in the fast lane

Woke up in Dallas this morning with the mg flu again  Another party waiting in Houston 
With 10,000 of our closest friends
Well, I ain't slowing down and I ain't gonna sleep
Man, cause I got a promise to keep
Keep baby

One thing in this life is certain 
You're either dead or you're hurting  There ain't no free ride in the fast lane
For every ounce of pleasure there's a pound of pain
Hey, you better love it if you play this game
 Cause there ain't no free ride in the fast lane

Jump in and hold on
 Cause we ain't playing no games 
Jump in sit down shut up and hold on
Kick them mules and let's get the hell outta here
