Speedy’s Racing Hot Rod

We are just share tree mechanics trying to make our way, don’t have much money just Working harder every day.
Oh we’re shade tree mechanics, trying to make our way, we don’t have much money just
Working harder every day.

We’d pull up to the mark and concentrate for a while, the motors would roar, we’d
Burn rubber for a quarter of a mile.
Than race back to the shade tree, tune everything just right,
Got to be ready for that next big race tonight!

We are just share tree mechanics trying to make our way, don’t have much money just Working harder every day.
Oh we’re shade tree mechanics, trying to make our way, we don’t have much money just
Working harder every day.

We’d always work ‘till midnight, using jacks and trouble lights,
Had parts on the benches and on the ground, tools scattered all around
Had new tires and shocks and a four speed box, plus a big radiator
Now, now we are ready for the terminator.

We are just share tree mechanics trying to make our way, don’t have much money just Working harder every day.
Oh we’re shade tree mechanics, trying to make our way, we don’t have much money just
Working harder every day.

Now we’re at the big race and we are going to take it to the wire
The motors roar, the flag went down!!
The whole damn thing caught on fire!! Good Lord!!

Oh we’re share tree mechanics trying to make our way, we don’t have any money,
Just working harder every day!
Yes, we’re shade tree mechanics trying to make our way….
We don’t have any money, just working harder every day.
