"Manic Mechanic" as written by and Frank Lee Beard Joe Michael Hill....
You want to race If you insist At that price I can't resist That's right That's right That's right Tonight it ain't right I got to have me a week But I'll be back for you, Jack And I'll let the machine speak That's right That's right That's right Showdown, you bet And I haven't even saddled my pony yet Have mercy, Miss Percy I done put the coon tune on this bet That's right That's right That's right

    General CommentYes, street racing. The lyrics are spoken in a slowed-down voice, not sung. "Coon" refers to a cajun I hear, not African Americans. The music is cool and sleak, very urban groove. Greatest semi-instrumental ever!

    My OpinionI dig this album quite a bit, but LOL this song is really lame. Just my opinion.

    General CommentNever could decide if this song was about a tough guy about to kick some butt on the track or just a wanna be trying to act tough. The line where he says "tonight, ain't right, I need to have me a week" sounds like "Yeah, I'm going to beat you, but ummm, not right now, maybe later..."
