​Detroit Diesel

This song is by Alvin Lee and appears on the album Detroit Diesel (1986).

Late at night I was driving home
Feeling tired I was all alone
I pulled in at the first truck stop motel
There she stood like a dream in the night
Hair was long and her dress was tight
Just one smile and I knew I was under her spell

You got me running like a Detroit Diesel
Got me humming like a Detroit Diesel
Hear me coming like a Detroit Diesel
Like I'm in overdrive

She took my hand checked me in for the night
She said "Honey don't you put up a fight.
I want some loving and to you it's all for free."
She got me blowing like a hurricane
So much good loving driving me insane
Can't believe that you really happened to me.

You got me running like a Detroit Diesel
Got me humming like a Detroit Diesel
Hear me coming like a Detroit Diesel
Like I'm in overdrive

You turn me on like an electric light
You burn me up like a missile sight
You got me running like a turbo nine forty-four
You move my soul like an original sin
You detonate me like a firing pin
When I leave you'll be coming back for more

You got me running like a Detroit Diesel
Got me humming like a Detroit Diesel
Hear me coming like a Detroit Diesel
Like I'm in overdrive.
