The Lyrics

I wrote this because the first three people to make an attempt at this song was "snot" up to par.
"Sling Shot"

So you think your getting nowhere
Cause your driving in a line
Knowing you can't finish first
Cause your running out of time

Why you want to think like that
Cause this is nothing new
You can get the checkers
You know what you have to do

So start to focus better
And open up your eyes
Sometimes it is hard to see
How you can pass him by

There's not gonna be a sign
Nor flashing neon light
Telling you to make your move
Or when the time is right

(So) Sling shot (sling shot) take a crazy chance
Sling shot (sling shot) drive right by real fast
If you don't do something
Winning you will not
So sling shot
Sling shot

Sling shot take a crazy chance
Sling shot take a crazy chance

You hope there is no yellow
Cause your going for the gold
Instead of getting second place
You must do what your told

You keep waiting where you are
For what I'll never know
Let's just fly right by that car
And go baby go
(So) sling shot (sling shot) take a crazy chance
Sling shot (sling shot) drive right by real fast
If you don't do something
Winning you will not
So sling shot
Sling shot

This could be the one for you
Oh, yea
Maybe yes, maybe no
It should be the thing to do
What I'm saying is
You gotta really go

You'll never get the checkers
Or kiss the trophy babe
If you don't believe there's a way

Sling shot
Please don't be to shy
Sling shot
Hit the gas and fly
You might win by little
And you might win a lot
So sling shot
Sling shot

Your Worst Nightmare - March 29, 2004 - Report this comment
This song was nice, but I normally would expect better from you. The pacing was good, but it seemed you were basically writing the lyrics of the original, but replacing a few words now and then. I gave it 4/3/4.
