letra de demolition derby – hank green

yeah, we gotta out tickets ready,
are you ready to go?
pay two bucks extra to be in the front row,
so grab your deep-fried cheeses, and you deep-fried meats,
your deep-fried veggies, and your deep-fried sweets.
all that mangled metal, and the flaming exhaust
is worth every dime no matter how much it costs.
there’s a lot of good things at the county fair,
but the demolition derby is why i’m there.

oh, demolition derby’s got it going on,
demolition derby, all night long,
demolition derby, that guy just lost his tire,
demolition derby, now i think he’s on fire,
demolition derby is why i’m there.

well, a lot of old cars are ready to say goodbye,
but we can’t let a death panel choose how they die.
with cash for clunkers you get four-thousand bucks,
but it’s much more exciting once you ditch your old truck.
so strap your helmet on and grind down your gears,
and take a shot of whiskey and conquer your fears.
yeah, there’s a lot of good ways to get rid of old cars,
but the demolition derby is the best by far.

oh, demolition derby’s got it going on,
demolition derby, all night long,
demolition derby, motocross intermission,
demolition derby, then you’re back to compet*tion,
demolition derby is why i’m there.

i hear the engines roar and the screaming crowd,
anything this much fun shouldn’t be allowed. oh, nose to nose, and trunk to trunk,
nothing left over but hunks of junk.
yeah, this is my church and these are my prayers,
smashing each other and flying through the air.
one car left running and i shed a single tear,
demolition derby, i’ll see you next year.

oh, demolition derby, and your carburetor’s rusted,
demolition derby, and your radiator’s busted,
demolition derby, they thought you’d win the cash,
demolition derby, but you just got whiplash,
demolition derby, i’ll see you next year.
