Well, it's a shin-kick morning 
Gotta kickstart the day 
Wind up my machine and I'll be on my way. 

Well, a burning fever 
Woke me up at dawn 
I didn't have no choice, I had to carry on. 

Well, my engine's overheating 
And I'm running out of gas 
I only got the two speeds and it's slow and fast. 

Well, I got to find a town that's got some action 
Got to find a place stays open late 
Right away. 

C.C. Mama 
Motorcycle queen 
I'm gonna catch up with you with my lightning wheels. 
*sure look good in those tight blue jeans
It's cold black coffee 
Eggs and grease 
Stop in at the truckstop, I don't want to sleep. 

Well, it's a shin-kick morning 
I'm gonna turn up the heat 
I'm racing all the truckers and I got them beat
