The Golden Age

Today I was driving around listening to some music and a song I had never heard came on.   I'm not sure I even made it through the first singing of chorus before I started laughing out loud. It was one of those moments when I was glad I have a blog to share this with all of you. Read the lyrics.

We drove right past

That no trespassing sign
We sat on the tailgate
And watched the planes take off

We thought we had all night

There was no need to rush
That's when those cops
Came pulling up
And I thought
Man, ain't this some shhhh


Your daddy's gonna kill me
But if I survive tonight
I wouldn't change one thing
Baby, yeah
I know it sounds crazy


But there was somethin bout the way
The blue lights were shinin
Bringing out the freedom in your eyes
I was too busy watching you
Going wild child
To be worried about going to jail
You were thinking that
Running for it
Would make a good story
I was thinking you were crazy as hell
And you were so
But you were stealing my heart
I fell in love in the back of a cop car

Man, they weren't playin

They sure threw those cuffs on quick
You tried to sweet talk 'em
They didn't fall for it
But I did
You were on the left
I was on the right
I knew you didn't smoke
When you asked him for a light
And I laughed
He got mad and slammed the door

[Repeat Bridge]

[Repeat Chorus]

Side by side

And locked in tight
They were taking their time
But we didn't mind

We talked

And we laughed
We sat real close
By the time they let us go
I was already gone

At first I thought it was a really bad commercial and then I thought it was sarcastic/ isn't.  Yes, this was actually on the radio.  Yep.  We live in a golden age people, a golden age of music.  I think that this would be an Awesome theme song for a reality tv show!  I mean we also live in the golden age of tv, where shows like Here Comes Honey Boo Boo and Keeping Up with Kardashian's are prime time shows.  I can completely see that chorus leading into a shot of a woman detailing the beginning of her relationship, stars in her eyes, or maybe just the reflection of the infamous blue lights.  You know it would be a hit.  Haha, I'm sorry, every time I look at the lyrics I chuckle some more!  Welcome to the Golden Age!
