I got a little game that I play
And I call it 'try to beat the morning paper home'
I ain't very good but I get a lot of practice
Even won once a month ago
Of course there was a girl involved that wasn't gonna let me rest
But I've always said that I can sleep when I'm dead

If there's somethin' goin' on within a hundred miles from home
You're gonna hear my V-8 sing
Long as I can beat the train and they got a passing lane
Baby, I ain't gonna miss a thing
Life's too fun and I'm too young and the night ain't over yet
Like I said, I can sleep when I'm dead

It ain't no fun if you ain't got money
So I always make it in to work
The trick is to leave at least a half an hour
To brush my teeth and change my shirt
Keep a closet full of Red Bull and Visine to hide the red
I don't need the rest, I can sleep when I'm dead

If there's somethin' goin' on within a hundred miles from home
You're gonna hear my V-8 sing
Long as I can beat the train and they got a passing lane
Baby, I ain't gonna miss a thing
Life's too fun and I'm too young and the night ain't over yet
Like I said, I can sleep when I'm dead

When I get tired, I'll go to bed
All that I can say is that it hasn't happened yet

If there's somethin' goin' on within a hundred miles from home
You're gonna hear my V-8 sing
Long as I can beat the train and they got a passing lane
Baby, I ain't gonna miss a thing
Life's too fun and I'm too young and the night ain't over yet
Like I said, like I said, like I said I can sleep when I'm dead
I ain't even tired yet
