Lyrics & Music by Noddy Holder and Jim Lea

Sitting here in my mean machine - I'm ready to explode

Looking out of my helmet at the faces

I been wondering all night long - If I will live or die

Yeah, it's always the same before the races

I got some hot line information

About the man who's occupation is driving the cars

Standing out there on the grid

And it's a kind of fascination - And it demands full concentration

The kind of a job

We all dreamed of as a kid

I can see on the track ahead - the heat is rising high

Gotta win for the team and it's never easy

I been feeling the butterflies - strapped into my seat

Yeah, and already the tension's getting to me

We're waiting in anticipation

For some official indication - They're ready to go

Revving up and hit the road

'Cause it's another big occasion

And there won't be no relaxation - They're ready to go

And they're Ready To Explode

You're gonna drive 'em round the bend

Have a go on the chicane

Gonna drive 'em round the bend

Without a warning - Ready Now To Explode

Who's gonna be the big sensation?

Who'll be the champion of the nation?

In one of them cars - Standing out there on the grid

He's gonna get a big ovation

Be the champion of the nation

The kind of a thrill we all dreamed of as a kid

I don't wanna break down

And I wanna explode

Don't let me break down

I wanna explode

Ever since I was just thirteen, I had a crazy, reoccuring dream

To be faster than the speed of sound

It was the only way to get around, oh yeah

(Speeding in my dreams)

Seventeen and I passed my test - Never settling for second best

I knew right away what I'd like

It was a 750 motorbike, oh yeah

(Speeding in my dreams)

I was living for speed
