Fire her up man

Jerry was a race car driver, he drove so god damned fast
He never did win no checkered flags but he never did come in last
Jerry was a race car driver, he'd say "El solo number one"
With a bocephus sticker on his 442, he'd light 'em up just for fun

Captain Pierce was a fireman, Richmond engine number three
I'll be a wealthy man when I get a dime for all the things that man taught to me
Captain Pierce was a strong man, strong as any man alive
It stuck in his craw that they made him retire at the age of 65

GO

Dog will hunt

Jerry was a race car driver, 22 years old
One too many Camparis one night and wrapped himself around a telephone pole, go

    What is Camparis? And What is Bocephus? These two things always confused me. I think Camparis=cold beers. As in "one too many cold beers one night, wraped himself around a telephone pole.
