Now there was me, my wife, my RIO and a gallon of JOE,
took off in my AA5B from San Pedro.
We hadn't much gas 'n' the skies were low,
but the doggone Grumman could really go.

Now along about the middle of the night,
we were rippin' along like Pilots might,
when a AG5B behind he blinked his lights,
and he cycled his engine and he flew outside.

We had a PowerFlow Exhaust and a K&N Filter - but,
you people may think that I'm in a rut,
but to you folks who don't dig the jive,
that's a Low Resistance Exhaust and extra Manifold Pressure for the overdrive.

We made grease spots outta many a good town,
and left the FAA’s heads spinnin' round 'n' round.
They wouldn't chase, they'd run and hide,
but me and that AG5B stayed side by side.

Now we were Grumman men and we likely knew,
that we would race until somethin' blew,
and we thought it over,
now, wouldn't you?

I looked down at my lovely bride,
her face was blue, I thought she'd died.
We left streaks through the clouds about forty feet wide,
but me and that other Grumman stayed side by side.

My RIO was pale, he said he was sick,
he said he was just a nervous wreck.
But why should I worry, for what the heck,
me and that Grumman was still neck-and-neck.

Now on through the deserts low we did fly,
a-flyin' low and a-flyin' wide,
me an' that Grumman was a-takin' a ride,
and we stayed exactly side by side.

Now I looked in my Formation mirror and I saw somethin' comin',
I thought it was a JET by the way it was a-runnin'.
It was a-hummin' along at a terrible pace,
and I knew right then it was the end of the race.

When it flew by us, I turned the other way,
the guy in the other Grumman had nothin' to say,
for it was a kid, in a hopped up Model-AA1A.

Yea, just a KID in a Hopped Up AA1A with an IO-360, Electronic Ignition, constant speed prop and every speed Mod you can think of.

I plagiarized "Hot Rod Lincoln"
I only had a Hot Rod '53 Ford .
In those days they did not have model names Wink
