    Gentlemen, Start Your Engines (Built to Last Demo, 1988)

    [Verse 1]
    It's three A.M. in the combat zone
    Gentlemen, start your engines
    You can close this bar, but baby I ain't going
    Gentlemen, start your engines
    If you lock up the whiskey, give me gasoline
    Got a seven grand redline on the black machine
    The dead can do my sleeping, if you know what I mean
    Gentlemen, start your engines

    [Verse 2]
    Got a little girl here in a pinafore
    Gentlemen, start your engines
    She's gonna do us all and thеn beg for more
    Gentlеmen, start your engines
    It's dark outside, but it's darker within
    Check the back of my jacket just to see my grin
    They don't write poems about the state that I'm in
    Gentlemen, start your engines

    [Bridge]
    One of these days I'm gonna pull myself together
    Soon as I finish tearing myself apart
    Let me tell you, honey, there's some mighty stormy weather
    Rolling 'round the caverns of my heart

    [Instrumental Break]

    [Verse 3]
    When the police come you better let 'em in
    Gentlemen, start your engines
    Don't forget to tell them what a sport I've been
    Gentlemen, start your engines
    Got a head full of vintage TNT
    They're gonna blow me up instead of burying me
    If you don't like trouble, better leave me be
    Gentlemen, start your engines

    [Refrain]
    Ge-ge-ge-gentlemen, start your engines
    Ge-ge-ge-gentlemen, start
    Ge-ge-ge-gentlemen, start
    Ge-ge-ge-gentlemen, start your engines

    [Outro]
    Like the Devil's Mustangs I've been ridin' hell for leather
    Put away angry and angry in the dark
    Let me tell you honey, there's some mighty stormy weather
    Rolling 'round the caverns of my heart
