  • Johnny Magic has a way with metal
    Has a way with machines
    One day in a garage far away
    He met destiny
    In the form of a heavy metal Continental
    She was born to run on a Proud Highway

    Then the whole world started running out of money
    People losing their jobs
    Right here in Wichita

    Wichita
    The home of the heavy metal Continental
    Where the Motor-Head Messiah was tuning the system in
    Johnny Magic, Johnny Magic
    Johnny Magic, Johnny Magic

    She burst from the garage in a blaze of silence
    Disappearing down Douglas at lightning speed

    She was gone before the garage door was down

    In Wichita
    The home of the heavy metal Continental
    Where the Motor-Head Messiah was tuning the system in
    Johnny Magic, Johnny Magic
    Johnny Magic, Johnny Magic

    Wichita
    The home of the heavy metal Continental
    She was born to run on a Proud Highway
    Now she goes long range on domestic green fuel
    100 miles per gallon is the Continental Rule
    Out on the Kansas two-lane flats near Wichita

    Wichita
    The home of the heavy metal Continental
    She was born to run on a Proud Highway
    Johnny Magic, Johnny Magic
    Johnny Magic, Johnny Magic
    The Motor-Head Messiah went to Washington
    To show them what he'd done
    The senators and congressmen came down
    In Washington

    And they rode in the heavy metal Continental
    She was born to run on a Proud Highway
    Johnny Magic, Johnny Magic
    Johnny Magic, Johnny Magic
