Primus – Jerry Was A Race Car Driver lyrics

[Verse 1: Les Claypool]
Jerry was a race car driver
He drove so goddamned fast
Never did win no checkered flags
But he never did come in last
Jerry was a race car driver
He'd say "El Sob number one"
With a Bocephus sticker
On his 442 he'd light 'em up
Just for fun

[Refrain: Les Claypool]

[Verse 2: Les Claypool]
Captain Pierce was a fireman
Richmond engine #3
I'll be a wealthy man when I get
A dime for all the things that
Man he taught to me
Captain Pierce was a strong man
Strong as any man alive
Stuck in his craw that they
Made him retire at the age of 65

[Refrain: Les Claypool]

[Bridge: Les Claypool & Chop Top]
He he he he he
Dog will hunt

[Refrain: Les Claypool]

[Verse 3: Les Claypool]
Jerry was a race car driver
22 years old
One too many cold beers one night
And wrapped himself around a telephone pole
