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
Riding it out in a thunderbird singing out loud every single word of Jack and Diane
Trying to pretend there was no rules
Kissing on boys and sneaking in bars trying to get a glimpse of who we are
We weren't wild but we weren't far

She said Thelma and Loiuse got nothing on me
And you can tell old James Dean to get in line
Thanks to Elvis and Kurt Cobain the world will never be the same
You 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 weathers good
But she changed her mind and went back to the 7-11
She went and married the football star
Had a few kids and works real hard
It ain't wild but it ain't far

She said Thelma and Loiuse got nothing on me
And you can tell old James Dean to get in line
Thanks to Elvis and Kurt Cobain the world will never be the same
You got to make history one day at a time
Yeah

Hey Thelma and Loiuse got nothing on me
And you can tell old James Dean to get in line
Thanks to Jesus and John Wayne the world will never be the same
You got to make history one day at a time

Like John Lennon and Kennedy
I'm with them yeah cause I believe
You got to make history one day at a time
