"The Race" as written by and Tim Brantley....
Sinbad has a shop next door
Where the boys gather outside
Said he's from San Francisco
By way of Carolina
They hang out, the street crowd
Waiting for a dream
To shake hands with the man
That can get them anything

Oh, Castleberry Hill
The neighborhood of thrills

And Captain hit the corner, going 90 miles an hour
Got stopped by his girl's old man
Slow down, slow down, slow down, slow down, boy, where are you going?
Sir, I heard you was a racer and I was thinking I could take you
By the way, you know we're more than friends
Slow down, slow down, slow down, slow down, boy
Can't you see, it's not a race? A race

Fireworks burn the Friday skies
After we take on the men in blue
Sinbad leans on the hood of his car
After a long day of work it through
We hang out, the street crowd
Waiting for a dream
On lockdown
Behind those doors of C-13

Oh, Castleberry Hill
The neighborhood of thrills

And Captain hit the corner, going 90 miles an hour
Got stopped by his girl's old man
Slow down, slow down, slow down, slow down, boy, where are you going?
Sir, I heard you was a racer and I was thinking I could take you
By the way, you know we're more than friends
Slow down, slow down, slow down, slow down, boy
Can't you see it's not a race?
(Hit the corner, going 90 miles an hour
Got stopped by his girl's old man)
Can't you see it's not a race?
(Hit the corner, going 90 miles an hour
Got stopped by his girl's old man)
Can't you see it's not a race? A race

So, we hang out, with nothing to do now
Waiting for a dream
There's a lookout sending his people
To the gorgeous Gold and Green

Come on through to Castleberry Hill
The neighborhood of thrills

Captain hit the corner, going 90 miles an hour
Got stopped by his girl's old man
(Can't you see it's not a race?)
Captain hit the corner, going 90 miles an hour
Got stopped by his girl's old man
(Can't you see it's not a race?)
Captain hit the corner, going 90 miles an hour
Got stopped by his girl's old man
(Can't you see it's not a race?)
Captain hit the corner, going 90 miles an hour
Got stopped by his girl's old man
Can't you see it's not a race?
