    Gentlemen, Start Your Engines
    Always the first one…out of the gate….you know he never liked to lose
    He was hard on the pedal…down to the metal….when the starter would let him loose
    Traffic couldn’t stop him…he blew on by…he didn’t wait to take their names…He was hell bent on winnin’ anything he’s been in…but she had a different game…
    (Race car noise)

    She told the men…
    Gentlemen start your engines…my love’s on the line
    Satisfaction’s guaranteed….you won’t be denied
    Gentlemen start your engines…cause love is on the line
    The loser gets the water…and the winner takes the wine

    She was a feast…fit for a king…he knew she’s make a beautiful prize
    Tall and good lookin’…he knew she was cookin…the recipe was in her eyes
    Yah…she set the table…invited him in…she knew his appetite was right
    He was hell bent on winnin’…anything he’s been in…he wasn’t gonna lose tonight…
    (Race car noise)

    When she said…
    Gentlemen, start your engines…get up on the line
    Put your key in the ignition…let your motor wind
    Gentlemen start your engines…love is on the line
    The loser gets the water…and the loser takes the wine
    (Race car noise)

    She left him with lipstick…all over his face…his shirt had been completely undone
    His first heat out he lost his heart in…in the best race he’d ever run
    Yah she left him with lipstick…all over his face…she blew the man right off his track
    She got a good start…an inside on his heart…and he never got it back
    (Race car noise)

    She told the men…
    Gentlemen, start your engine…get up on the line
    He had the pole position…but she took home the wine
    He was the first to finish…but he ended up behind
    First heat out…he lost his heart…cause love was on the line
    First heat out…he…lost…his…heart
    Cause love…
    Was…on…
    the line….
