Word's around McDonald's

There's a new kid in town

Blew in from McLean County,

Fastest ride around

The Dukes don't believe what they done heard:

King lost by five car lengths

And then he lost his nerve.

Don't know who done it, but

He blew away the King

Rumor fancy turbo feedin' his machine



Well the King and his friends are the real live Dukes

Readin' hot rod mags in the back of Algebra class

Don't give a damn about nothin' at all

'cept for a four-barrel carb

and an over-haul



King told the kids

He was Number One

Said it was his town

They's gonna have to run

Final showdown at the 4th Street light

Howlin' full moon on a hot summer night



CHORUS:

Pedal to the metal

First sight of green

Send shivers down your spine

When you hear those hemi's scream

The Duke sat stunned as the kid pulled away

To leave the King a pauper to try another day.
