A Supercharged Example of the Breed

For many men the drug of choice is speed,
Their dreams contain pure automotive bliss
A supercharged example of the breed

Is all these would be racing drivers need
No greater stimulant exists than this
For many men the drug of choice is speed,

And childish thought is father to the deed
An open road too good a chance to miss
A supercharged example of the breed

The little boy inside the man is freed
His pounding heart can leap the great abyss
For many men the drug of choice is speed,

His family car becomes a mighty steed
His wife a captive Princess he must kiss
A supercharged example of the breed

But all too soon real life must intercede
The dream balloon deflating with a hiss
For many men the drug of choice is speed,
A supercharged example of the breed
