    He was a hard-headed man
    He was brutally handsome
    And she was terminally pretty
    She held him up, and he held her for ransom
    In the heart of the cold, cold city
    He had a nasty reputation as a cruel dude
    They said he was ruthless, they said he was crude
    They had one thing in common
    They were good in bed
    She'd say, "Faster, faster. The lights are turnin' red."

    Life in the fast lane
    Surely make you lose your mind
    Life in the fast lane.. ehhh

    Are you with me so far?
    Eager for action and hot for the game
    The coming attraction
    The drop of a name
    They knew all the right people
    They took all the right pills
    They threw outrageous parties
    They paid heavenly bills
    There were lines on the mirror
    Lines on her face
    She pretended not to notice
    She was caught up in the race

    Out every evening
    Until it was light
    He was too tired to make it
    She was too tired to fight about it

    Life in the fast lane
    Surely make you loose your mind
    Life in the fast lane yeah
    Life in the fast lane
    Every thing all the time
    Life in the fast lane uh huh

    Blowin' and Burnin'
    Blinded by thirst
    They didn't see the stop sign
    Took a turn for the worst
    She said, "Listen, baby. You can hear the engine ring.
    We've been up and down this highway, haven't seen a goddamn thing."
    He said, "Call the doctor. I think I'm gonna crash."
    "The doctor says he's comin',
    But you gotta pay him cash."
    They went rushin' down that freeway,
    Messed around and got lost
    They didn't care, they were just dyin' to get off

    And it was life in the fast lane
    Surely make you loose your mind
    Life in the fast lane ehh
    Life in the fast lane
    Everything all the time
    Life in the fast lane uh huh

    Life in the fast lane

    Life in the fast lane

      Amazing song.... my three favorites by the Eagles would have to be Life in the Fast Lane, Victim of Love, and Hotel California.
