Songwriters: Collins, Jim; Martin, Tony; Mobley, Wendell Lee

Blowin' out spring break
With your not right friends
Wake up on the beach
With new ink on your skin

Do somethin' crazy and dumb
While you're still young

Go on and tie the knot
Start a new life
Take turns gettin' up
When the baby cries

Living on nothin' but love
While you're still young

Life is too short to put it off anymore
You gotta live it before
It's too late
I can't turn that clock back around
Oh, what you're dreamin' about
You better do it now, don't wait

You give 'em your two weeks
At the dead end job
And do what you love
Be your own boss

Do what they say can't be done
While you're still young

Life is too short to put it off anymore
You gotta live it before
It's too late
I can't turn that clock back around
Oh, what you're dreamin' about
You better do it now, don't wait

Don't wait

Take the gold watch
Sell everything
Throw a dot at the map
Hook up the Airstream

Ride into that setting sun
Do something crazy and dumb
While you're still young

While we're still young

You're still young
