Hey, we ain’t never not made it before, have we?

(inspired by the movie "Smokey and The Bandit")

That time we went from Atlanta to Texarkana and back in 28 hours.

They said it couldn’t be done.  We wouldn’t make it.

Hey, we ain’t never not made it before, have we?

 

That time we were gonna use that broken bridge to jump that river.

They said “you’re crazy, you ain’t gonna make it”

Hey, we ain’t never not made it before, have we?

 

We ain’t never not made it before

Even when we both weren’t even that sure

That it could be done, but it sure would be fun

To give it a try and see what adventures we would have in store

When everyone else would say “you ain’t gonna do it, there ain’t no way”

To get from here to there in less than a day

To drive that fast and not get caught

To do all these things, hey, who woulda thought

 

We’re the greatest things to come out the South

Since the days of Jackson, Stuart and Lee

The things we do, the whole world will see

People will say “them boys are crazy, there ain’t no way, it couldn’t be”

We’ll show ‘em all, and then they’ll know

That we’re for real, we ain’t just for show

 

When a job comes along that they say can’t be done

We’ll show ‘em how to do it and still have fun

From here to there, from there to here

We’ll drive real fast and be sure to steer clear

Of all the things that’ll get in our way

 

Nevermind them brakes, we got the hammer down

We gonna blow right through your sleepy town

And when the man comes along tryin to stop us dead

We’ll go so fast, we’ll spin his head

We’ll get it done, we’ll settle the score

Cause hey, we ain’t never not made it before

 

That time we faced down all them city cops

Them county Mounties , and them smokey bears

We gave them the slip, we got away

We’re legends now, and when people say

You ain’t gonna make it, they’re ain’t no way

Hey, we ain’t never not made it before, have we?

This Day Is Done

 

It's been quite a day.

Dealing with all the people and all they had to say.

Seeing people I like a lot, and people that I don't like at all.

Wishing things could be better, or be the same and never change.

There are times in this day I wish I could say: "freeze this moment, let it live eternally"

There are times in this day I wish I could say: "fast forward, let me escape hurriedly".

Bottom line is this day is now done.

Now I'm asleep, and that's always fun.

Dreaming of the things I can't have at this time.

Whether that be a person, a place or a thing that can’t be mine.

I leave it to God to work out the details and the time of His choosing.

Worry over these things, I will not give in to doing.

So thank you Lord for one more day that I’m able to live.

Let me do it all over again, if tomorrow you will give.
