Lyrics

First To Last

Keeping it lit to prolong the enjoyment

Doing my best to avoid employment

The conventional wisemen advised me to see

All the things I could do with my college degree

But before you accept what you're about to receive

Don't reject what you've always believed

 

I'll be the first to last

never worry bout the past

first to last

 

I was married to young to an unloved girl

Who proceeded to guide me to her lonely world

I believed I could change her with my affection

Well, that didn't work; had to change my direction

With my children crying as I loaded my car

Reality exploded like a phony cigar

 

I'll be the first to last

never worry bout the past

first to last

Can't control what's in the past

 

Well I've worked real hard on a bunch of jobs

But I still ain't left a mark

Got all wet at least a hundred times

But it hasn't doused the spark

Started out slow; man, that was a drag

But I'm the last one standing when they're waving the flag

 

I'll be the first to last

never worry bout the past

First to last

can learn a lot from what has past

first to last

Can't control what's in the past
