Song title: Born to be wild

by The Speenwolf

Born to be wild

Get your motor running
Head out on the highway
Lookin' for adventure
In whatever comes our way

Here and god are 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 lightning
Heavy metal thunder
Racin' with the wind
And the feeling that that I'm under

Like a true nature's child
We were born, born to be wild
We can climb so high
I never want to die
Born to be wild

Notes: Often performed mixed in other songs (Light of day, Twist and shout...)
