Corey Smith - Twenty One

rate me

When I was only 17 couldn't wait for twenty one<br />

I'd hang around on Clayton St in the bars there getting drunk<br />

A baseball cap and a fake I'd would get me in the clubs<br />

Then I would dance with the college girls and lie about who I was<br />

Well, I'm premed here at UGA<br />

Live on Millage Avenue<br />

I was raised over in Buckhead<br />

I drive a BMW<br />

I was breaking hearts<br />

And taking names and numbers just for fun<br />

Stealing kisses wishing I was twenty one<br />

<br />

Well Thursdays came<br />

And pocket change would quickly disappear<br />

Upstairs at Lowry's Tavern<br />

We'd pay a nickel for the beer<br />

Shooting pool, smoking cigarettes<br />

With a dizzy head and a grin<br />

4 A.M. on a school night<br />

Still hanging out with my friends<br />

One hour sleep on a dirty coach<br />

No shower off to school<br />

Smelling just like a brewery<br />

With a bad hangover too<br />

The teachers all would hassle me<br />

"Stay awake Pay Attention"<br />

I was catching hell wishing I was twenty one<br />

<br />

The youngest one of all my friends<br />

I didn't act my age<br />

Too cool for the football games and the homecoming parades<br />

Now I look back and have to smile<br />

Cause boy it was fun<br />

Being seventeen wishing I was twenty one<br />

<br />

Now I'm only twenty six<br />

Feeling more like forty three<br />

My hair lines disappearing<br />

And I never get IDed<br />

My clothes are out of fashion<br />

No I'm not cool anymore<br />

In the bed by ten o clock each night<br />

And up at half past four<br />

Still I go down<br />

To that college town<br />

When the Bulldogs play at home<br />

I drink keg beer from a trash can<br />

'Till the whole damn thing is gone<br />

Then I look at all those college girls so innocent and young<br />

I just check them out and say "Damn<br />

I wish I was twenty one"
