*This is a parody of Queen’s “Under Pressure” if you haven’t guessed it already – we highly suggest you sing it to the tune.*

**bass solo intro ends with boost waste gate relief sounds instead of cymbal smash**

Mm brap brap pfft
Hnng boom brap pep
Hnng boo-boom brap bap pfffffttt
Pressure, spooling down on me
Pushing air in tubes when asked for
Turbo pressure, that brings more horses abound
Cuts my lap times in two
Beats people in Street
Hnng boom brap pep
Hnng boom brap pep
Boom brap ah
Boom brap ah – that’s okay
It’s the terror of not knowing
When this engine will blow
Watching that pressure
Screaming “LET ME OUT!”
Pray tomorrow gets me higher
Pressure on pistons, those rings better seal
Dea-dea-dead
Mmm-hmmm
Oh-god-its-ba-ba-bad
OKAY
Scroungin’ around – gut the engine on the floor
These are the days it never rains but it pours
EEH ARRGH EH
ARGH WHAT THE FUH?
Umm… to the dump!
Man up!
Piston rings seal – please seal ah yes
Piston rings seal – please seal please seal please seal ah
It’s the terror of not knowing
When this engine will blow
Watching that pressure
Screaming “LET ME OUT!”
Pray that the next lap gets me higher, higher high
Pressure on pistons, those rings better seal
Blown away in competition like a rookie
Prayed to the gods but she won’t start
Keep comin’ with a rebuild but its a hack and slash
Why – why – WHY?
Boost boost boost boost boost
Insanity laughs as head gaskets keep blowing
Can’t we give ourselves one more bar?
Why can’t we give her just one more chance?
Why can’t we just rebuild rebuild rebuild rebuild
Rebuild rebuild rebuild rebuild rebuild…
‘Cause boost is the worst drug
That fools you with rebuilds and
Head gaskets that seal at peak boost
With which you get more torque and so many more horses
Caring ’bout nothing but
This is our last lap
This is our last lap
This is ourselves with
Turbo pressure
Turbo pressure
Pressure

*Pssssh*

For someone who isn't a chef, Kevin tends to employ the word 'stock' a lot. The only thing he cooks up are tires in the summer as per non grata amongst family and friends as he scurries between lapping and competing in Time Attack, Autocross and the occasional endurance karting.
