Born to Be Wild!!


Get your motor runnin'
Head out on the highway

Looking for adventure
In whatever comes our way

Yea darlin', gonna make it happen
Take the world in a love embrace

Fire all of your guns at once
And explode into space

I like smoke and lightnin'
Heavy metal thunder
Racing with the wind
And the feeling that I'm under

Yea darlin', Gonna make it happen
Take the world in a love embrace

Fire all of your guns at once
And explode into space

Like a true nature child
We were born, born to be wild
We can climb so high
I never wanna die

Born to be wild
Born to be wild
