Hey Little Cobra

This song is by The Rip Chords and appears on the album Hey Little Cobra and Other Hot Rod Hits (1964).

Hey little cobra, don't you know you're gonna shut 'em down

I took my Cobra down to the track
Hitched to the back of my Cadillac
Everyone was there just a-waitin' for me
There were plenty of Stingrays and XKs

Shut 'em down
(Spring little Cobra, get ready to strike)
Shut 'em down
(Spring little Cobra with all of your might)

Shut 'em down
(Spring little Cobra, get ready to strike)
Shut 'em down
(Spring little Cobra with all of your might)
Hey little Cobra, don't you know you're gonna shut 'em down

When the flag went down, you could hear rubber burn
The Stingray had me goin' into the turn
I hung a big shift and I got into high
And when I flew by the Stingray, I waved bye-bye

Shut 'em down
(Spring little Cobra, get ready to strike)
Shut 'em down
(Spring little Cobra with all of your might)

Shut 'em down
(Spring little Cobra, get ready to strike)
Shut 'em down
(Spring little Cobra with all of your might)
Hey little Cobra, don't you know you're gonna shut 'em down

Around the far turn in the straight-away
I was blowin' off everythin' that got in my way
The Stingrays and Jags were so far behind
I took my Cobra out of gear and let it coast to the line

Shut 'em down
(Spring little Cobra, get ready to strike)
Shut 'em down
(Spring little Cobra with all of your might)

Shut 'em down
(Spring little Cobra, get ready to strike)
Shut 'em down
(Spring little Cobra with all of your might)
Hey little Cobra, don't you know you're gonna shut 'em down

Shut 'em down, shut 'em down, shut 'em down
Shut 'em down, shut 'em down, shut 'em down
