(Bill Fries, Chip Davis)
We is screamin' through the valley
Through the mud and crud and cornfields
'Cross the railroad tracks of Persia
Had a CJ-5 with a four-wheel drive

On the I-six-eighty ramp
When I rumbled through his trap
And he made his siren wail
With Smokey on my tail
Now I got racin' stripes and dual pipes
Got a mill with a four pot carb, you know
Well, the chase was on, but I had the edge
Got a CJ-5 with a four-wheel drive

And I made a hard right turn
Went slashin' through the corn
And the kernels flew
Just cookin' alive in a four-wheel drive

Where the Nishnabotna flows
Where the mari-ju-wana grows
Up the hills and down the dales
And Smokey on my tail.
[Imagine a series of comic-style thought balloons.]
Look out, now. Here he come.
Oh, we gonna get it on now.
(Don't hit that fella with the banjo.)
We gonna swim this here creek now, Smokey. [Pronounced "crick", of course.]
Yard wide and a foot deep.
"Nishnabota River", they call it.
Might haveta winch out.
Gonna do a wheelie on that there gopher mound now, Smokey.
Can you dig it, Smokey?
Got four on the floor and four in the air on that one, didn't we?
Goodness gracious. 'Bout ta bust my shocks.
[Back to our regularly-scheduled rhyming. Add the sound of wailing sirens.]
Well, that Jeep of mine made Smokey whine
He was mired in fourteen feet of mud
I pulled up onto the blacktop
Sakes alive! I had twenty-five more

And Smokey had a Ford
But Smokey's stroked and bored
With a rig that'll never fail
Settin' out back a' the jail
