RED, READY, AMBER
(Worman - Bloomberg)
POLECATS (MERCURY, 1981)

Red, ready, amber, set, green, let's go!
I'm racin' like the wind, that's not very slow
Takin' no notice of my my speedo
I put my foot to the floor, race forward and then
Had to pull over, I was nicked again

[Chorus]
I'm the king of the highway and don't you know
In my car I'm a cool daddy-o
I'm a hot rod kid and I never drive slow
Red, ready, amber, set, green, let's go!

Red, ready, amber, set, green, let's go!
I'm a real mean dude in my daddy's car
I go very fast, but I never go far
I toot my horn at the girls, just missed a brick wall
My foot slips off the gas, and then I stall

[Chorus]

Red, ready, amber, set, green, let's go!
I'm an A one driver, though I don't like to boast
I can go across zebras with both eyes closed
As for parking, you better beware
I park on the pavement, 'cause it's much safer there

[Chorus]

Red, ready, amber, set, green, let's go!
I stole the car from our garage
While my mama's on the phone to my auntie Marge
My dad didn't notice, he was watchin' the telly
I got on the road and a gave it some welly

[Chorus]
