Johnny Hot Rod

Gather ’round, all you kats
Yeah you ankle biters too
Come lend an ear for a stack-up story
Every word’s I swear the truth
Listen close and tight, hey
And don’t you tank a word
To the story of Johnny Hot Rod
Saddest story that you’ve ever heard

Johnny was the fastest, yeah
The quickest kat around
In his baby-blue thirty-two
Hopped up rockin’ Ford Deuce Coupe
Johnny was the ginchiest, yeah
The coolest kat in town
And wherever Johnny made the scene
Was the coolest hangout around

Johnny was a romeo
With dreamy eyes in his leather coat
And whenever Johnny dragged the gut
All the Dollys came in tow
Johnny gigged at Old Roy’s Shop
Changin’ oil, givin’ tune up jobs
Old Roy said when he retired next year (he’d be 68)
Old Roys would become Johnny’s Shop

Chariots always came from all around
Lookin’ to chase that Johnny Hot Rod down
When they found him, (well Johnny never hid)
He’d take ’em out to old Boggstown Road
The blacktop was old, full of cracks and potholes
Quarter mile up a fat line was painted in gold
And at the finish, time after time
Johnny was first to cross that golden line

Johnny Hot Rod, Johnny Cool
The fastest kat, the hippest dude
In your wailin’ rocket dipped in baby blue
Hopped up thirty-two deuce coupe
All the rodders came gunnin’ for you
To find out if the legend was true
But you took ’em on, one at a time
Man, you were the fastest kat of all time

One day a kat came from outer space
With an unknown name, unfamiliar face
In a fifty-five Chevy dipped in gunmetal gray
Soundin’ mean and lean and full of rage
When he found Johnny they set the race
At dusk they’d meet, well, you know the place
And man Boggstown Road was antsville for sure
When the sun kissed the earth that day

Off the line the chariots flew
Layin’ rubber, leavin’ nothin’ but fumes
Halfway down they were still neck n’ neck
‘Til Johnny edged ahead and made his move
Johnny’s chariot was first to cross the line
But just as he did, trouble arrived
The deuce coupe slid, spun and flipped over
Rolling smack-dab into an old telephone pole

Johnny Hot Rod, Johnny Cool
You were the fastest kat, the hippest dude
That day you died you were only 22
And they buried you in your Ford deuce coupe
Many years have scooted by since that fateful day
But rumor has it, well, some oldtimers say
They still see you, Johnny Hot Rod, just at dusk
In your rockin’ deuce coupe, still draggin’ the gut



  1. I’m so jealous of your mad photograpy skillz 🙂
