Lyrics
Lookin' for a thrill
You'll get it my way
Let's hit the highway
I'll take you down
Shoot out in the night
Lookin' for action
The main attraction
Is back in town

Press the pedal to the metal
On your mark, set, go

Under the gun
Do your living on the trigger
Under the gun
Walk on the wire
Under the gun
When the stakes are gettin' bigger
Under the gun
Take aim and fire

I don't need a reason to get crazy
I'm gettin' crazy
And that's enough
Show me somethin' strange
I'll make it stranger
I swear that danger
Runs in my blood

Press the pedal to the metal
On your mark, set, go
When the dust begins to settle
Everybody's gonna know

Under the gun
Do your living on the trigger
Under the gun
Walk on the wire
Under the gun
When the stakes are gettin' bigger
Under the gun
Take aim and fire, fire, fire, fire, fire

Yeah, there's no speed limit where I am coming from
Let's hit the highway doin' 69

Press the pedal to the metal
On your mark, set, go
When the dust begins to settle
Everybody's gonna know

Under the gun
Do your living on the trigger
Under the gun
Walk on the wire
Under the gun
When the stakes are gettin' bigger
Under the gun
Take aim and fire
Under the gun
Under the gun
Under the gun
Under the gun

Come on boys, fire
I can't hear you, fire
Fire!
