Every day I'd watch Them beauties roll by And sometimes I'd Hang my head and cry Cause I always wanted me one That was long and black One day I devised myself a plan That should be the Envy of most any man I;d sneak it out of there In a lunchbox in my hand Now getting caught Meant getting fired But I figured I'd have it all By the time I retired I'd have me a car worth At least a hundred grand I'd get it one piece at a time And it wouldn't cost me a dime You'll know its me when I come through your town I'm gonna ride around in style I'm gonna drive everbody wild Cause I'll have the only one There is around So the very next day When I punched in With my big lunchbox and With help from my friend I left that day with a Lunch box full of gears I've never considered Myself a thief But GM wouldnt miss Hust one little piece Especially if I strung it out Over several years The first day I got me a fuel pump And the next day I got me An engine and a trunk Then I got me a transmission And all the chrome The little things I could get In my big lunchbox Like nuts, an bolts And all four shocks But the big stuff we snuck out In my buddy's mobile home Now up to now My plan went all right Til we tried to put it all Together one night And that's when we noticed that Something was definitely wrong The transmission was a '53 And the motor turned out to be a '73 And when we tried to put in the bolts All the holes were gone So we drilled it out So that it would fit And with a little bit of help With an adaptor kit We had that engine running Just like a song Now the headlights They was another sight We had two on the left And one on the right But when we pulled out the switch All three of em come on The back end looked kinda funny too But we put it together And when we got through Well, that's when we noticed That we only had one tail-fin About that time my wife walked out And I could see in her eyes That she had her doubts But she opened the door and Said, honey, take me for a spin So we drove up town Just to get the tags And I headed her right On down main drag I could hear everbody laughing For blocks around But up there at the courthouse They didn't laugh cause to Type it up it took the whole staff And when they got through The title weighed sixty pounds I got it one piece at a time And it didnt cost me a dime You'll know its me when I come through your town I'm gonna ride around in style I'm gonna drive everbody wild Cause I'll have the Only one there is around Uh, yeah, Rid Rider This is the Cotton Mouth In the psychobilly Cadillac Come on Haw, this is the Cotton Mouth And negatory on the cost of This machine there, Red Rider You might say I went Right up to the factory And picked it up It's cheaper that way Uh, what model is it Well, It's a 49, 50, 51, 52, 53 54, 55, 56, 57, 58, 59 automobile It's a 60, 61, 62, 63, 64, 65 66, 67, 68, 69, 70 automobile
