Racing In The Street

Text písně Racing In The Street

I got a 69 Chevy with a 396 
Fuellie heads and a Hurst on the floor 
She's waiting tonight down in the parking lot 
Outside 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 got no strings attached 
We set 'em up and then we shut 'em down 
Tonight tonight the strips just right 
I wanna blow 'em off in my first heat 
Summer's here and the time is right 
For racing in the street 


We take all the action we can meet 
And we cover all the north east states 
When the strip shuts down we run 'em in the street 
From the fire roads to the interstate 
Now some guys they just give up living 
And start dying little by little piece by piece 
Some guys come home from work and wash up 
And go racing in the street 
Tonight tonight the strips just right 
I wanna blow 'em all out of their seats 
Calling out around the world 
We're goin' racing in the street 


I met her on the strip three years ago 
In a Camero with this dude from L.A. 
I blew that Camero off my back 
And drove that little girl away 
But now there's wrinkles round my baby's eyes 
And she cries herself to sleep at night 
When I come home the house is dark 
She sighs 'baby did you make it alright?' 
She sits on the porch of her daddy's house 
But all her pretty dreams are torn 
She stares off alone into the night 
With the eyes of one who hates for just being born 
For all the shut-down strangers and hot-rod angels 
Rumblin' through this promised land 
Tonight my baby and me we're gonna ride to the sea 
And wash these sins off our hands 
Tonight tonight the highway's bright 
Out of our way mister you best keep 
Summer's here and the time is right 
For racing in the street 


Tonight tonight the strip's just right 
I'm gonna blow 'em all outa their seats 
'Cos summer's here and the time is right 
For racing in the street 
In the street - in the street - in the street - in the street
