What It Is Kid Lyrics

Whoa!
Yeah!
Yeeaaaaah!

Draggin' old Mustang ' 69
Top dropped back and lookin' fine
Workin' the groove backin' up with Scotch
Lookin' like Sir Lancelot

What it is Brother
What it is kid
Rock it like a mother
What it is!

Lookin' to sway by the evenin' shade
But I'm not ready to behave.
That ain't bad on the other hand
Detroit rocks lke the Rio Grande

What it is Brother
What it is kid
Rock it like a mother
What it is

What it is
What it is
What it is
What it is
What it is what it is

ZZ Top has lots of cool car songs:

I'm Bad, I'm Nationwide

{An original catch phrase for the ages, it's the lyrical and musical
embodiment of the low rider ethos. Though millions swore they'd heard
it before, the national anthem of the U.S. of ZZ first greeted dawn's
early light on 1979's DEGUELLO, their first for Warner Bros.}

Well I was rollin' down the road in some cold blue steel,
I had a blues man in back, and a beautician at the wheel.
We going downtown in the middle of the night
We laughing and I'm jokin' and we feelin' alright.
Oh I'm bad, I'm nationwide.
Yes I'm bad, I'm nationwide.

Easin' down the highway in a new Cadillac,
I had a fine fox in front, I had three more in the back.
They sportin' short dresses, wearin' spike-heel shoes,
They smokin' Lucky Strikes, and wearing nylons too.
'Cause we bad, we nationwide.
Yeah we bad, we nationwide.

Well I was movin' down the road in my V-8 Ford,
I had a shine on my boots, I had my sideburns lowered.
With my New York brim and my gold tooth displayed,
Nobody give me trouble cause they know I got it made.
I'm bad, I'm nationwide.
Well I'm bad, bad, bad, bad, bad, I'm nationwide.

and one of my favorites:

Manic Mechanic

You want to race?
If you insist.
At that price, I can't resist.
That's right, that's right, that's right.

Tonight it ain't right,
I got to have me a week.
But I'll be back for you, Jack,
and I'll let the machine speak.
That's right, that's right, that's right.

Showdown? You bet.
And I haven't saddled my pony yet.
Have mercy, Miss Percy.
I done put the coon tune on this bet.
That's right, that's right, that's right.

I wonder how many Mustang songs there are?

Here's one, I don't know if you've heard it before...

Mustang Sally by Wilson Pickett


Mustang Sally, think you better slow your mustang down.
Mustang Sally, think you better slow your mustang down.
You been running all over the town now.
Oh! I guess I'll have to put your flat feet on the ground.

All you want to do is ride around Sally, ride, Sally, ride.
All you want to do is ride around Sally, ride, Sally, ride.
All you want to do is ride around Sally, ride, Sally, ride.

One of these early mornings, oh, you gonna be wiping your weeping eyes.
I bought you a brand new mustang 'bout nineteen sixty five
Now you come around signifying a woman, you don't wanna let me ride.
Mustang Sally, think you better slow your mustang down.
You been running all over the town now.
Oh! I guess I'll have to put your flat feet on the ground.

All you want to do is ride around Sally, ride, Sally, ride.
All you want to do is ride around Sally, ride, Sally, ride.
All you want to do is ride around Sally, ride, Sally, ride.

Or other Ford related songs?

Hey Little Cobra by The Rip Chords

I took my Cobra down to the track

Hitched to the back of my Cadillac

Everyone was there just a waiting for me

There were plenty of Stingrays and XKEs

(chorus, interspersed with "Shut 'em down"s)

Spring little Cobra get ready to strike

Spring little Cobra now with all of your might

Spring little Cobra get ready to strike

Spring little Cobra now with all of your might

Hey little Cobra don't you know you're gonna shut 'em down

When the flag went down you could hear rubber burn

The Stingray had me going into the turn

I hung a big shift and I got into high

---------------

And when I flew by the Stingray I waved bye-bye

(chorus again)

From the intro to "Black Sunshine" by White Zombie:
"Gripping the wheel, his knuckles went white with desire, the wheels of his Mustang exploding on the highway like a slug from a .45.
True death: 400 horsepower of maximum performance piercing the night.
This is Black Sunshine."
