Primus – Jerry Was A Race Car Driver lyrics

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

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
