Derby Car Song

Derby Car Song

(tune: Clementine)

First you carve it, then you sand it,
Then you paint it red and white.
They you put a number on it, add the wheels-
It’s out of sight.
Soon it’s race time.  Weigh it in now.
I can hardly wait to show…
All my friends are at the gate now,
One, two, three.  Get ready, go!
There’s a first place.  There’s a second place.
There are ribbons for the rest.
Oh, what fun it is competing.
And I know I did my best.

– Crossroads of America, 1992
