Just make sure the kids are tucked in… “Road racin’ Movin’ on down apbum line Shiftin’ gears, Face into space And time Move so fast I can’t explain Hands on the wheel I’m on the road again Baby all the time To my lovin’ machine Baby, radio’s blastin’ Rockin’ all night Rollin’ down the highway Through the dead of night Road racin’!

Mark Reale is very underrated. Sabrutin February 1st Comments. The result is another intense moment that will leave the unaware listener silent during the first listen.
