The Lyrics

dedicated to my friend's brother who drives like a maniac...
youre on a highway somewhere and youre going pretty fast
and the lane up more is closing, but your foot's still on the gas
your car is almost flying, but the wheel's still in your hand
how you past your road test, I just cant understand

Are you playing with the gears?
speeding through the signs
is the road affront you clear?
are you always out of time?

Are you playing with the gears?
speeding through the signs
is the road afront you clear?
are you always out of time?

Youve been driving like youre fearless ever since you were seventeen
the car in front aint moving, so you feel you gotta speed
driving up to college, felt like time had never past
how you dont got a ticket, I just cant understand

Are you playing with the gears?
speeding through the signs
is the road afront you clear?
are you always out of time?

Well you spent a lot of money and you spent a lot of dimes
to buy a bottom body kit, that was lost during a drive
you ignore the speed limit, drive as fast as you can
you have left me clueless how you have no accidents

Are you playing with the gears?
speeding through the signs
is the road afront you clear?
are you always out of time?

Now I know this kid who Michael is talking about, and let me tell you.....he's worse than what this song even says....that kid needs to be brought down a few pegs, he thinks hes the greatest person in the world....

It actually started out good for you but you wimped out in the last stanza where you could have really brought it home. While your spelling here is much improved, the name of the tune is "Reelin' In The Years" off of the 1972 album "Can't Buy A Thrill"
