Ronnie's Racing School [9 years]

(l-r): Lesley, C., M. @ Warped Tour, SF

Glitter Mini 9 “Ronnie’s Racing School”
Who’s that cool cat
racing down the track?
Is it Cary Grant?
No he’s too laid back

Larger than life
Ronnie’s making out 
icon of his time
he’s what motor sports are all about

Ronnie’s Racing School
making men of fools
Ronnie’s Racing School
it’s cool, it rules, it rules

Pack of Lucky Strikes
smoking down the speedway
you just cant deny
he’s hotwired for the 21st century

Ronnie’s Racing School
you know you can’t lose
Ronnie’s Racing School
it’s cool, it rules, it rules

Ronnie, hey
and the boys and the girls
they cry, he’s so shy
Ronnie hey

Ronnie’s Racing School
making men of fools
Ronnie’s Racing School
it’s cool, it rules, it rules, it rules (x2)
