Lyrics

Imagine you were at my station
And you brought your motor to me
You're a burner, a real motor car
You said you want to get your order filled
It made me shiver when I put it in
Pumping just won't do and luckily for you

Who ever thought you'd better
At turning a screw than me
I do it for my life
You made my driveshaft crank
You made my pistons bulge
You made my ball bearings melt from the heat

We were shifting gears hard when we took off
Pushin' hard, all four on the floor
Then we hit top end, but it feels so slow
You said you want to get your order filled
It made me shiver when I put it in
Pumping just won't do and luckily for you

Who ever thought you'd better
At turning a screw than me
I do it for my life
You made my driveshaft crank
You made my pistons bulge
You made my ball bearings melt from the heat

I'm givin' you my full service
And you know its more than enough
Your engine sparks my plug, ya know that I'm in love
Imagine you were at my station
And you brought your motor to me
Put four on the floor, you know what's in store

Who ever thought you'd better
At turning a screw than me
I do it for my life
You made my driveshaft crank
You made my pistons bulge
You made my ball bearings melt from the heat
