The Rip Chords – Hey Little Cobra lyrics

Hey, Little Cobra, don't ya know
You're gonna shut 'em down

I took my Cobra down to the track
Hitched to the back of my Cadillac
Everyone was there, just a waitin’ for me
There were plenty of Stingrays and XKE’s

(Shut ‘em down)
Spring, Little Cobra gettin’ ready to strike
(Shut ‘em down)
Spring, Little Cobra with all your might
(Shut ‘em down)
Spring, Little Cobra gettin’ ready to strike
(Shut ‘em down)
Spring, Little Cobra with all your might

Hey, Little Cobra, don't ya know
You’re goin’ to shut them down

When the flag went down
You could hear rubber burn
The Stingray had me
Goin’ into the turn

I hung a big shift
And I got into high
When I when I flew by the Stingray
I waved bye, bye

(Shut ‘em down)
Spring, Little Cobra gettin’ ready to strike
(Shut ‘em down)
Spring, Little Cobra with all your might
(Shut ‘em down)
Spring, Little Cobra gettin’ ready to strike
(Shut ‘em down)
Spring, Little Cobra with all your might

Hey, Little Cobra, don't ya know
You’re goin’ to shut 'em down

Around the far turn
Into the straight away
I was blowin’ off everything
That got in my way

Stingrays and Jags
Were so far behind
I took my Cobra out of gear
And let it coast to the line

(Shut ‘em down)
Spring, Little Cobra gettin’ ready to strike
(Shut ‘em down)
Spring, Little Cobra with all your might
(Shut ‘em down)
Spring, Little Cobra gettin’ ready to strike
(Shut ‘em down)
Spring, Little Cobra with all your might

Hey, Little Cobra, don't ya know
You’re goin’ to shut 'em down

Shut 'em down
Shut 'em down
Shut 'em down
Shut ‘em down...

    Highway 101, summer 1969, everybody is heading for the beach and that meant driving thru the mountains to half moon bay - there we are - there they are! The 2 cars and an event just like written about - guess who won?
    A mustang!
    Gas was 25 cents/gallon and the love was in the air 24x7 from san francisco to sandiego and all the beaches inbetween - in those days the beaches weren't posted so you could surf if you could get it!
