RACING IN THE STREET

Outtake version 1


One, two, three, four
I got a 32 Ford, she's a 318
Fuelie heads and a Hurst on the floor
She'll be sitting tonight down in the parking lot
Down at the Seven-Eleven store
Me and my partner Sonny built her straight out of scratch
And he rides with me from town to town
We only run for the money ain't no strings attached
We shut 'em up and we shut 'em down
Tonight tonight the strip's just right
I wanna blow 'em all out of their seats
So come on out around the world
We're goin' racin' in the street

Well we take all the action we can meet
And we cover all the northeast states
When the strip shuts down we run 'em in the street
From the back roads to the turnpike gates
Now some guys they do it for the money
Other guys do it cause they don't know what else they can do
And me I sit with nothing left at home
I got tired of waking up in a world that somebody else owns
And so tonight tonight the strip's just right
I wanna blow 'em off in my first heat
Summer's here and the time is right
For goin' racin' in the street

Well I met her on the strip three years ago
She was in a Camaro with this dude from L.A.
And I blew that Camaro off my back
And I stole that little girl away
But now there wrinkles round my baby's eyes
And she cries herself to sleep at night
When I come home the house is dark
She whispers "hey baby did you make it all right?"

Tonight tonight the strips just right
I wanna blow'em all out of their seats
And so come out now everyone
And we'll go racing in the street
Yes come on out now little one and we'll go dying in the street
Yes come on out now everyone and we'll go dying in the street
Look at me it's true
Baby what else can we do
Racing in the street
Racing in the street
Racing in the street
Racing in the street
Racing in the street
Racing in the street
