Flirtin' With Disaster Lyrics: I'm traveling down the road and I'm flirting with disaster, I got the pedal to floor, my life is running faster, I'm out of money, out of hope, it looks like self destruction. We're flirtin' with disaster, ya'll know what I mean And the way we run our lives it makes more sense to me I don't know about yourself or what you want to be, yeah When we gamble with our time we choose our destiny. Speeding down the fast lane and honey we're playin' from town to town The boys and I been burnin' it up and honey can't seem to slow it down I got the pedal to the floor our lives are runnin' faster We got our sights set straight ahead but I ain't sure what we're after.
Album · 1978 · 14 Songs. Then again, maybe Flirtin’ with Disaster just had the perfect lyrical touch; lead singer and songwriter Danny Joe Brown had a way with the rock 'n' roll lexicon. Boogie No More, Good Rockin’," and Let the Good Times Roll are just a few examples of how Molly Hatchet placed itself in the great tradition of wild rockers like Little Richard and Jerry Lee Lewis.
By the time Flirtin' with Disaster reached stores, the Hatchet were already bona fide forces to be reckoned with on the Southern rock circuit, with a fan base nearly on par with contemporaries like Skynyrd and the Allmans (who they covered on their eponymous debut LP). With a Frank Frazetta album cover that clearly sent a message that the band means business - the business of hard partying and equally as hard rocking - Flirtin' with Disaster is a 40-minute tour de force spearheaded by a triple guitar attack and the raspy thrillbilly growl of Danny Joe Brown.
