Johnny Lightning

Shifting up a gear, compensate understeer
Throw her in a curve, feel those tyres surf
Push the pedal down, enjoy the rumbling sound
Pull the parking brake, make that bugger shake
Hear those mufflers roar, ride her like a whore

Turn the wheel sharp right, take the corner tight
Shift down for a boost, keep those fingers loose
Turn the wheel slight left, feels like grand auto theft
Let those rear wheels spin, you’re guaranteed to win
Lay back your head and yell, you’re on your way to hell

GO GO, JOHNNY LIGHTNING, GO GO GO!
the smell of burning rubber, full speed on cruise control

GO GO, JOHNNY LIGHTNING, GO GO GO!
Eight-hundred-fifty yards, before the flag is shown

GO GO, JOHNNY LIGHTNING, GO GO GO!
Another sharp left turn, his 3rd win in a row

GO GO, JOHNNY LIGHTNING, GO GO GO!
Here comes the racing champ, this guy is rock ’n roll
He slams one final drink, and drives the girls back home

Push the pedal down, enjoy the rumbling sound
Turn the nitro on and all behind is gone
Open the window shout, and let that tail break out
Hear that turbo scream, rpm’s endlessly
The engine yells and yells, you’re on your way to hell

The Accident is Imminent

Hey I hear Johnny Lighting!
Do you hear Johnny Lighting?
That must be Johnny Lightning!
… can you hear those wheels spin?

Look there goes Johnny Lightning!
Hey was that Johnny Lightning?
You sure that’s Johnny Lightning?
… oh my God it’s him!

Yeah that was Johnny Lightning!
Sure it was Johnny Lightning!
Who else than Johnny Lighting?
… oh my God it’s him!

The air feels weird and eerie, the car folds ‘round the oak tree
His eyes burn rpm greed, the engine in the rear seat
Goat hooves crossing the skidmarks, horns torn out from the tree bark
The cold air sudden gone, and Johnny just rides on…

IN HELL !
