  • I will survive in my mach 5
    in my mach 5, I will survive

    I bring the hammer down
    A tiny crushing sound
    I'm in the yard
    Smashing match box cars
    An itty bitty crash
    And my machine is trash
    But I'm blastin' past
    With chickey on the dash
    Chickey on the gas

    I will survive in my mach 5
    In my mach 5, I will survive

    The firecracker blow
    An urge overload
    The wild plastic fire
    Smoke from the fire
    Layin' a little patch
    Without a single scratch
    Between the hammer and the rock
    I can see bright blue mach 5

    Oh my goodness
    It's the most beautiful little thing
    I've ever seen in my life
    It's blue on the outside
    And creamy on the interior
    I can't bring myself to smash it
    So I take it for a ride on a
    Sunny summer Sunday afternoon
    I'm riding with the top down
    Riding with the top down
    Riding with the top down
    Hell I blow the top right off my car!

    I will survive in my mach 5
    In my mach 5, I will survive Writer/s: CHRISTOPHER WELDON BALLEW, DAVID MICHAEL DEDERER
