Twas the night before Christmas, and caught at the lights
Was a domestic V8, and no cops in sight.
I will try, I will try with my small motor
To beat this Mustang, even with his big blower
When the lights go green I pull like no joke
While the Mustang erupts in clouds of tire smoke
Now Smasher! Now Revver! Now Stroker! Now Blitzen
These are the name of my four VTEC pistons
Pulling ahead I am the star of the action
But I know I am in trouble when that V8 gets traction
Grabbing second I hear the rpm sing
My mirror is blocked by my shopping cart wing
It doesn't take long before I hear the monster gaining
All I can do is keep this little four banger straining
In a second the shockwave hits with a blast
My stickers go flying, now a thing of the past
Now no need for third because now it's too late
Just sit back and relax like you can relate
Looking up at the taillights getting smaller and smaller
The driver backs off just to give me a holler:
"You can't win them all" he said with a grin
"You mightn't win any with that silly thing"
As I watch the Mustang disappear in the distance
I pray to Santa for that turbo this Christmas.
