It was a time crunch that had Canadian rock band Trooper’s lead singer Ra McGuire stressed out. They were just days from going into the studio to record their next album and he and co-writer guitarist Brian Smith were short some songs.
In an effort to comfort his pal, one the bands crew put an arm around McGuire and said “Hey don’t worry we’re here for good time not a long time”
Apparently the lyrics to the song came quite quickly after that.
