Lyrics

  • TAKE YOUR FOOT OFF THE BREAKS
  • BUT YOU WON’T STOP MY SOUPED UP FORD
  • WELL YOU CAN SET YOUR CLOCK, ‘COS I WON’T STOP
  • I GOT MY BOOT TO THE BOARD
  • WELL THIS GREEDY JEEP, DON’T NEED NO SLEEP
  • DRINKS ALL THE GAS THAT YOU CAN POUR
  • IT’S A FRONT WHEEL DRIVE, SOUNDS LIKE A BEEHIVE
  • GOOD LORD THAT’S FOR SURE
  • I’M BLOWING TOWN, NOT BREAKING DOWN
  • DO YOU HEAR THAT SOUND, THOSE WHEELS TO THE GROUND
  • I’M ON MY WAY, I CAN’T STAY
  • MAKE NO MISTAKE, I’M PULLING OUT TODAY
  • HIT THAT SPOT ON THE DIAL AND WAIT FOR A WHILE
  • TILL THOSE TUBES ARE ALL A GLOW
  • GALVANIZED TO THE WHEEL, YOU NEED NERVES OF STEEL
  • BUT YOU KNOW THAT IT DON’T SHOW, WELL I GUESS YOU FEEL HIGHER ON
  • THOSE PNEUMATIC TYRES ’COS THEY SURE GRIP THE ROAD
  • KEEP THAT ENGINE CLEAN, FEED IT GOOD GASOLINE
  • GOOD LORD THAT’S FOR SURE
  • I’M BLOWING TOWN, I WON’T BE BREAKING DOWN
  • I’M MOVING DOWN, HEAR THOSE WHEELS ON THE GROUND
  • I’M ON MY WAY, I SURE CAN’T STAY
  • MAKE NO MISTAKE, I’M LEAVING TOWN TODAY
  • NO HIGHWAY COP, GONNA MAKE ME STOP WHAT I STARTED
  • ‘CAUSE I WON’T BE FREE TILL I GET UP AND GO WHERE MY HEART IS
  • DO YOU KNOW WHAT IT TAKES
  • TO TRY TO CATCH UP TO MY SOUPED UP FORD
  • WELL MAKE NO MISTAKE BY APPLYING THE BRAKES
  • WHEN I SAY ‘ALL ABOARD’
  • YOU CAN ROLL UP THE SIDEWALK AND END ALL THE SMALL TALK
  • WHEN I SHIFT MY GEARS, ‘COS I WON’T BE BACK
  • WHEN I HEAD DOWN THE TRACK,
  • A THOUSAND MILES FROM HERE
  • I’M BLOWING TOWN, NOT BREAKING DOWN
  • LISTEN TO THAT SOUND, THOSE WHEELS TO THE GROUND
  • I’M ON MY WAY, I SURE CAN’T STAY
  • MAKE NO MISTAKE, I’M LEAVING TOWN TODAY
