: I recall the phrase "living in the fast lane", used during my childhood, long before the Eagles used "life in the fast lane", as a title for a song. I am 46.

: Does anyone remember the term "Whistle britches" ?

I found "fast lane" in one reference but it only dated it back to the song in 1976. But I agree with you. I think the phrase is older.

"Whistle britches" sounds familiar but I don't know what it means.
