I Lived and Loved Fast

Eating a whole lemon meringue pie I could be dead by morning for I am old Devouring him with my eyes Showing him a true cougar for my childish side is prominent I never expected to live this long I drove over a hundred miles an hour more than once I drank myself into a stupor a couple of times and still got behind the wheel of three or four cars I totaled. Walking away, sneering. They say when you do dangerous things you have a death wish Bungee jumping? Why the hell not? Wrestling with a crocodile might be a stretch I am five foot two my arms are stubby and soft I lived and loved fast Did all the things I wanted to do I was supposed to be dead by thirty.
