Paroles Burn Out

Le - Par .

Jimmy's outside with his motor engine hummin'
Sent me along to see if you were comin'
Out onto the highway gonna break the city limits
Jimmy's gettin' ready gonna put his foot in it
Soft shoe Louie drinkin' with his floozy Sue
Got the invitation the burn out's due

I'd be a rebel when I'm good and ready headin' for the bar
Tell Jimmy to cool it but not to go too far

Burn out on highway 9
There's gonna be a burn out on highway 9

Louie and Jimmy didn't know about the plan
Cops out on the highway, gonna take the job at hand
Been hidin' out for Louie gonna get him canned
Gonna catch him in the action
He's gonna wanna make a stand

Jimmy's impatient wants to burn on rubber
He's gotta wait for Louie 'cause there ain't no other
The undisputed king of the road said
"Jimmy, I'm ready, you better shift your load"

Burn out on highway 9
There's gonna be a burn out on highway 9
Come on, and get it, boy

Louie and Jimmy's out to have a fight
Shakin' hands with the man below
Stokin' out the flames, flames burnin' higher
One of them has gotta go
One of them has gotta go

Highway 9 and they're starting to roll
Jimmy's hearts thumpin', blood runnin' cold
Louie looks over and gives a sly smile
Says, look in your mirror, boy, cops are behind
Get a move on Jimmy, you're fallin' for the trap
There's only one winner, the loser takes the rap
Well, bye bye Jimmy, don't wait for me inside
I'm goin' back to floozy Sue and thanks for the ride

Burn out on highway 9
There's gonna be a burn out on highway 9 (it's gonna be a burn out)
Burn out on highway 9
There's gonna be a burn out on highway 9
