"Heavy Metal (Takin' A Ride)" as written by Sabrina Louise Bernstein, Warren Felder and Steve Mostyn....
Drive it on up and let's cruise a while
Leave 'em very far behind
You can hedge your bet on a clean corvette
To get you there right on time

Now if you're ready to dive into overdrive
Baby the green lights are on
It's like you're runnin away on some high octane
Every time she reached the boulevard

Won't you take a ride, ride, ride
On heavy metal
It's the only way that you can travel
Down that road

Satisfied, fied, fied
On heavy metal
Baby won't you ride
Ride it until it explodes
Heavy Metal

My oh my how this lady can fly
Once she starts rollin' to leave you
You know you just can't lose the way she moves
You wait for her to finally release you

It's not a big surprise to feel your temperature rise
You've gotta get your redline fever
'Cause there is just on cure that they know for sure
You just become a heavy metal believer

Won't you take a ride, ride, ride
On heavy metal
It's the only way that you can travel
Down that road

Satisfied, fied, fied
On heavy metal
Baby won't you ride
Ride it until it explodes
Heavy Metal

Heavy Metal
Heavy Metal
Heavy Metal
Heavy Metal

    General CommentIt's a motorhead'd love song about his Corvette. Redline fever refers to maxing out the rpms, and trust me, if you go over too long the engine explodes. Seen it. Racing is such an adrenelin rush, nothing like it on the ground except on your fast fast fast bike. Riding a motorcyle's the closest thing to flying on the ground you can get...but this song is totally about hitting it in your Vette. Or your '69 Stang that will eat a Vette for lunch...dude! any other intrepretation is completely esoteric and not in keeping with the lyrics, Nacho84, if you know anything about racing.

    We'll hit the street with this blaring when we take our '81 350 (right now) Vette out and it is just so cool. Both from the same year, lol.
