In this well-known, original song, the singer obviously can’t do 55. However, evident in my own lyrics below, I can (and need to!) drive 85’ in order to escape the killer bees that are constantly after me! It seems that whenever I pull out of my driveway, I just happen to ram into their beehive just behind me... Naturally, these killer bees become furious; thus, I become their “bullseye” that they chase after at top speed. This is why I can (and need to!) drive 85!

Need For Speed to Stay Alive


My foot seems to have a mind of its own, hey!

Well, I see ya checkin’ out my chrome, ya!

Still, it ain’t wise to gravitate near

I reckon y’all wanna be close, shoutin’ those cheers again!


Gonna still do my normal 85!

This is what’s keepin’ me, here, alive

I’m out-runnin’ that bee-hive

I can drive 85! Oh ya!


Oh!

Ya, I whined to the cop, station 31, hey

If those bees catch me, then I’m done...

Start diggin’ my grave since they are nearly here


Why won’t you let me just drive in fourth gear?

He said, “Well! Oh, well!

Then, just do your normal 85

This is what’s keepin’ you here alive


You’re out-runnin’ that bee-hive

You can drive 85!

Oh, well!”


I can drive 85!

I can drive 85!

Oh!


I like to drive fast, ya know, to flee those bees

While I’m at it, I need to drive away fleas

Now I’m free from those killer bees and black fleas. Ugh!

The cops now keepin’ insects’ doom away from me


Gonna still do my normal 85

This is what’s keepin’ me, here, alive

I’m out-runnin’ that bee-hive

I can drive 85!

Ya! Ya! Ya!


I can drive 85!

I can drive 85!
