John Kelly: Music & Lyrics

Racing Car Driver

(Words & Music - John Kelly)
Racing Car Driver


I wanna be a racing car driver
An actor, a writer
A famous musician
The world’s politician

I wanna be an astronaut in space
Representing the human race
Receive high acclaim
Live off the fame

Chorus
Because I just can’t accept
I just won’t accept myself
No I just can’t accept
I just won’t accept myself

I wanna be an ace fighter pilot
With my baby inside it
The fatal attraction
A piece of the action
I wanna be a scientist searching
To stop people hurting
Receive high acclaim
Live off the fame

Chorus

I’ve anticipated
But I stay frustrated
All of the time
I’ll put my dreams on the shelf
Until I can accept myself
I’ll put my dreams on the shelf
Until I can accept myself

Chorus
John Kelly (©1992)
