Walking Heads - 24 Hours Of Racing (Going To Stay Awake All Night)

Alright

I’m going somewhere
I go every year
But how I get there
I’ve no idea
Lots of Germans
Many Danes
Blonde hair
Viking names
And some of them
Have been drinking
Since 6 am.

And they’re all here to watch a motor race
I think I’m in the right place
Hmmmmm.

24 hours of racing
Sounds alright
24 hours of racing     
I'm going to stay awake all night
24 hours of racing
Sounds alright
24 hours of racing
Going to stay awake all night.

It’s a killer at the circuit
Tryin’ to watch the race
Avoiding drunken Dutchmen
Falling flat on their face.

And the Mexicans strike up a rhythm

Everybody samba

Aye aye aye aye

Aye aye aye aye


Oohh ooooh

When I was at Le Mans
I saw lots people went
In million dollar Bentleys
Slept in 50 dollar tents.

To stay awake at Daytona
For 24 Hours
They drink mescal
Gives them super powers.

I’m going somewhere
I went last year
Motor racing
And lots of beer

We all get messed up
Don’t know where we are
50,000 Brits lost
In classic Jaguars

And we’re all here to watch a motor race
I think I’m in the right place.
Hmmmmm.

24 hours of racing
Sounds alright
24 hours of racing
I’m going to stay awake all night.
