I was born in a hurry but there wasn't any place
Nowhere fast seemed better than nowhere slow
I never really got the hang of hanging around
When you get down to it
I guess I always knew it
What it is that makes my world go round
CHORUS
It's a matter of horsepower
For 8 seconds on miles per hour
It's the way I am and it's a fact I can't ignore
Yea, big boy legged, fuel injected
Running wild, radar detected
Man can always stand a little bit more
Horsepower
Well the view looks better from ahead than it looks behind
I've got a need to speed and I don't mean the drugs-store kind
Some people like a life that barely moves at all
I say more power to them
Then I fly right through 'em
Til it slows down to a crawl
CHORUS
Then I think about horsepower
For 8 seconds on miles per hour
It's the way I am and it's a fact I can't ignore
Yea, big boy legged, fuel injected
Running wild, radar detected
Man can always stand a little bit more
Horsepower

    The lyrics are incorrect and I cannot correct them using the "report lyrics" link because the banner is in the way. The webmaster needs to correct the code to restore functionality to the site. Seriously. What's the point of providing a feature that can't be used and what's the point of letting a feature remain broken? Lol!
    Anyway, chris ledoux is not singing about cars or engines in this song. He's singing about horses. The correct lyrics should read "yea, big four legged, fuel injected". Yes, four legged! Real cowboys prefer horses over any kind of vehicle. ;)
