Lyrics


Drive it on up and let's cruise a while

Leave your troubles far behind

You can hedge your bet on a clean Corvette

To get you there right on time

Now if you're ready to dive into overdrive

Baby, the green lights are on

It's like you're running your brain on some high octane

Every time she reaches fully blown


Won't you take that ride on heavy metal?

It's the only way that you can travel down that road

Satisfied on heavy metal

Baby won't you ride, ride it until it explodes


Heavy metal


My oh my, how this lady can fly

Once she starts rollin' beneath you

You know you just can't lose, the way she moves

You wait for her to finally release you

It's not a big surprise to feel your temperature rise

You've got a touch of redline fever

'Cause there is just one cure that we know for sure

You just become a heavy metal believer


Won't you take that ride on heavy metal?

It's the only way that you can travel down that road

Satisfied on heavy metal

Baby won't you ride, ride it until it explodes


Heavy metal

Heavy metal

Heavy metal...
