Atkins, Rodney - 15 Minutes Lyrics

I got a call from my best friend this evening
He said he wasn't going out with us guys on Friday night
Yeah, he was gonna change for his new found flame to keep her satisfied
And I just laughed and said, "Hey man, well go ahead and try"

'Cause I gave up smoking, women and drinking last night
It was the worst fifteen minutes of my life

Now I've heard it said that too much fun will kill you
And I'll be the first to tell you that I don't wanna die
Too many twelve ounce curls, pretty girls and parties ain't advised
Well, take it from me don't believe all that hype

'Cause I gave up smoking, women and drinking last night
And it was the worst fifteen minutes of my life
That's right

Well, you could get hit by a truck tomorrow
So you might as well raise a little hell tonight

'Cause I gave up smoking, women and drinking last night
And it was the worst fifteen minutes of my life
Man, it was the worst fifteen minutes of my life
That's right

    Good song. Does anyone remember a song from maybe 5 years ago about a young man working on a farm and having an affair with the older woman who owned the farm? No husband in the picture.

    I liked the song but couldn't find the name before.


    Never mind. I found the song on Google. Garth Brooks - That Summer. Good song.


    that summer garth brooks

  9. Mike Ward

    Why is Taylor swift being mentioned on comments! This is COUNTRY! Lol Taylor ain't country! Country artists don't just give up on their style ... If anything this song reminds me of brad paisley's song I'm gonna miss her! Pipe down and Enjoy a real country tune.

    Hannah Toman

    haha she started off as a kinda country pop singer

    Mike Ward

    Hannah Toman she did .. My point is ... Her roots are supposed to be country right? She grew up in the country didnt she? Lol and still come out with that country pop bullshit! I tell ya man these "country" singers of today have realy screwed this amazing culture over.

    Hannah Toman

    yeah they have

    Chaplain Strunk

    Mike Ward,you just hit the nail right on the head.

    i just gave up drinking because I knocked a guy out last night for "looking at me wrong" I think giving it up will be the best decision of my life

  20. nolvar

    Talking about who is country and who is not, you all sound like a bunch of country hipsters, saying "I listened to that band way before you heard them."

  21. joseph mark

    @skollwintergreen i am country because i am, just cuz you do certain things it dont make you anything.

  22. jordan street

  57. beautyholic babe

    i love this song!! bse!!

  58. QSH6H

    awesome song :o

  59. Lars A

    i like girls :)

  60. Foofpup

    Oh, I didn't say it was you who had. I actually rather think it was probably Hirshules or some like-minded person. Lol.

  61. rockcabbage

    Hm, thats funny, I haven't rated any of your comments at all, I as simply stating that I've come across several weird, unrelated conversations in the comment section of country music videos. But I do agree with you, how people think there so important and right based on the amount of thumbs up or down a comment has.

  62. Foofpup

    Because everyone's weird and we like to use country songs as an excuse to prove it--subconsciously, of course. =P Although I think it's kinda funny someone's insecure enough to feel the need to give my comments a thumbs-down, but not anyone else in the argument. How pathetically lame is that? Lol.

  63. rockcabbage

    Why are the weirdest fucking arguments in the comments of good country songs?

  64. Foofpup

    Well, at least it's not inappropriate for school. I had my bro watch some of comedian Rodney Carrington's stuff, and he realized in class less than two weeks later he was mouthing the words to "Little Things That Piss Me Off."
    Still doesn't quite compare to the time he realized he was blasting his ears out to Seether's FMLYHM in class, though. He took his headphones off and could still hear it. Thankfully no one who noticed got it. Lol.

  65. Foofpup

    Lol. *mock appraising look* This mean you haven't given up on me? (Yes, I'm female)
    "The why of the who who stole my bacon is quite unclear, like radishes." --my cousin Yamesu, in response to my question about why an unidentified person had stolen his bacon (We agreed that this was a rather mean thing to do. *innocent blink* What? So we like bacon! What's the problem? *intent, owl-eyed stare*)

  66. Foofpup

    *rofl* I hear that lately! That's why I don't pay much attention to the new stuff unless I like the artist!

  67. Foofpup

    Lol. Actually, I think most of the chicks in my group are at least a little bi. Even the straight ones have been known to say they'd agree to a threesome with their guy and another chick, under certain conditions. XD
    Although the gays I know tend to be flamboyant about it. My cousin Yamesu's gay bro, Akiiro, does make-up flawlessly, and has all the mannerisms. I think he wants to cry every time 'su hisses at him, 'cause he always pouts. Lol.

  68. Foofpup

    Thanks for the support. I don't particularly care what pig-headed fools say of me and my group, but it's nice to know not everyone falls for that crap.

  69. Foofpup

    *amused* I'm polytheist. Which god are you talking about?
    And on top of that, I've been known to be cruel and unusual enough (in perfectly legal ways) that my homophobic and straight male cousin informed me in no uncertain terms that he'd rather take it up his ass then live another childhood with me. Hell probably wouldn't let me in. *shrug* I was a terror. Still am, when the mood strikes. I just manage it better now. Doesn't mean I don't do paybacks. Lol. Vengeance, thy name is irony. :)

  70. Andy Fry

    you guys are all lil bitches

  71. Foofpup

    *rofl* Man, my family went to Texas Roadhouse one time, eight of us or more at once...they dropped our food right before they got it to the table and we got it all remade again, for free. My dad left a $20-something tip on the table for the waiters, since we were treated well apart from the loss of our food the first time, and the manager told us the cost was waived. Over $100 in food, free. YES!!!

  72. Bookgirl251

    I love this song. Wished he had a video on this song. :D

  73. Foofpup

    Totally agree with you there. On all of it.

  74. Foofpup
