The Lyrics

A song about a guy and his old busted Pontiac GTO (also known as the "Goat").
I'm running down the road, engine's wrecked
In my Goat
I got seven running all
the time
Four are trashed from racing,
Two just need replacing,
One is frozen and won't fire
Take it easy, take it easy,
The right-rear tire's kind of low,
Are you crazy?
Pop the clutch while you still can,
Or else you might burn up the trans--
This ain't a dual overhead cam!
Take it easy...
Well I was turning 'round a corner
in Winslow, Arizona
When the brakes just went out on me
I said, "Oh my Lord!" and barely missed a Ford
That must've come within a couple feet
Come on baby, drive it sanely
'Cause Triple-A no longer wants to come and save me
Some you lose and some you win
But it'll never have to smog again,
And half the parts don't match the VIN
So take it easy...
Well I'm running down the road, something's loose
In my Goat
The transmission's missing
second gear
Looking for The Kragen
On Third Street at Fagan
You can't find 'em here
Take it easy, take it easy,
The duct tape on the vinyl seats drives me crazy
Come on baby, drive it sanely
'Cause if you don't, corrosive liquid's
Gonna spray me, oh oh oh
I'm getting kind of queasy...
We oughta take it easy
