The Lyrics

These freeways are boring
Folks in cars are backed up for miles
The temperatures are rising
All the folks I see wearing no smiles

That's why
We speed
Ooh,
That's why
This is why we speed
The reason why we speed

Don't you see tryin' only
Tryin' to get there and back in one day
We don't like all of this sitting
Just get around these jerks in any way

Ooh, ya
That's why
We speed
Ooh,
That's why
This is why we speed
The reason why we speed

This is why we speed
This is why we speed

This is why we speed
This is why we speed
This is why we speed

Slow drives

Hey you watch your driving
Don't you see the gas on the right?
Don't you know that you can punch it?
Just as long as we don't see black and whites

Woah
Woo, woo
Woah, woah

Ya
Shouldn't speed
Shouldn't speed

Pull it o'er
Pull it o'er
Pull it over to the side

I told you
I told you really shouldn't speed
I told you
