    Lyrics

    Mr. Smith had an Oldsmobile
    Baby-blue with wire wheels
    I took her home the day she was advertised
    He said she would leaked when it would rain
    Sounded like an aeroplane
    but I knew she was jewel in disguise

    She had a 455 rocket
    The biggest block alive
    I couldn't hardly wait just to take my turn
    She was made for straight-a-ways
    She grew up hating Chevrolets
    She's a rocket
    She was made to burn

    Well, who's junk pile piece of Chevelle is this?
    Did you boys come here to race or just kiss?
    mmm now don't ya want to know what I got underneath my hood
    I know she might sound like she's missin
    but buddy she could teach you a lesson
    in just a quarter mile and i'll smoke you good

    In my 455 rocket
    The kind the police drive
    I couldn't hardly wait to just take my turn
    She was made for straight aways
    She grew up hating Chevrolets
    She's a rocket
    She was made to burn

    I'm telling you and i ain't ashamed
    I cried when that wrecker came
    As we skid i thought i heard angels sing
    Sounded like the Beach Boys
    Hit the curb then began to sail
    Took out most of the safety rail
    Even the cop asked me, "Man what'd you have in that thing?"

    I had a 455 rocket
    The very kind you drive
    You wanna watch yourself when you take that turn
    She was made for straight aways
    She grew up hating Chevrolets
    She's a rocket she was made to burn, burn
    Ohh she's a rocket she was made to burn
