Verse 2:

  E                       A                D
    Can't live forever,  that's wishful thinkin'.
  E                        A                   D
    Whoever said that      must have been drinkin'.
  E                        A              
   Don't wanna grow up.  I don't see why.
         G                          A
       I couldn't care less if time flies by.
  


Chorus:

  D         G              D        A
  18 'til I die, gonna be 18 'til I die. 
           D                  G
  Yeah, it sure feels good to be alive,

Verse 3: (same as verse 1)

  Anyway, I just wanna say
  Why bother with what happened yesterday?
  It's not my style, I live for the minute;
  If ya wanna stay young, get both feet in it.
  18 'til I die.


Verse 4: (same as verse 2)
  A little bit of this, a little bit of that;
  A little bit of everything, gotta get on track.
  It's not how you look, it's what ya feel inside
  I don't care when, I don't need to know why.


Chorus:(same as before-different ending)
 
    D         G             A   
 ...18 'til I die.  There's one thing for sure,

    I'm sure gonna try.

* Then you play the chorus again without words(instrumental)...
  D    G    Em     A    D    G    Em     A
  
ENDING:
    
  Yeah don't worry about the future, forget about the past; 
  We're gonna have a ball, yeah, we're gonna have a blast.
  Gonna make it last.     Hey,            yeah.
