The Lyrics

Test race to see who’s going to join the team
Bold…daring
No…guys like me
Worry…never
I must win…you will see

Blown bearings
I remember
The wheels were out of line
I remember
Still took a top prize
Now I’m signed

Tweak…the engine
Tinkers…for the trial
Worry…never
I get angry…if I fail

Blown bearings
I remember
The wheels were out of line
I remember
Still took a top prize
Now I’m signed
Now I’m signed
