Lyrics

On the beach, fell asleep
As the sand burned our feet
It's a shame we didn't drink, we didn't smoke
So what 'cha wanna do today?
Throw our girls in the waves
Beat our chests as the cops let us go

Now we got those good times
Playboys in our pink ties
Mucking up the punchlines
Might not last forever
But now we got those
Good times
Blowing off the stop signs
Good that we can unwind
Might not last forever
But now we got good times

It's hard to know
What to do when you look like a fool
Hemingway spilled his brains on the street
Boost your testosterone
But get the hell off your phone
What's the point if you're not 23?

Now we got those good times
Playboys in our pink ties
Mucking up our punchlines
Might not last forever
But now we got those
Good times
Blowing off the stop signs
Good that we can unwind
Might not last forever
But now we got good times

Everyone should get a second chance
When they make the mistake of their life
But if you walk out and find someone
Tall and dark and kind of dumb
I can't guarantee that I'll be free
When you come crawling back to me someday

Good times
Playboys in our pink ties
Mucking up our punchlines
Might not last forever
But now we got those
Good times
Blowing off the stop signs
Good that we can unwind
Might not last forever
But now we got good times

Now we got good times
Now we got good times
