"Pod People" Soundtrack (1983)

Skip to 9:30 to hear the full version of the song

Burning Rubber Tires (also commonly known as Hear the Engines Roll Now) is a song from the 1983 film Los Nuevos Extraterrestres, which bears a resemblance to E.T. Joel Robinson later covered the song on MST3K with misheard lyrics (see below). It has also been covered by Lemon Demon.

An extended version was discovered on a rare soundtrack album by unclesporkums, and (among other songs from the film) was uploaded on YouTube on November 12, 2014.

Lyrics

Original (Spanish)

English Dub

This is the rare extended version from the soundtrack.

Get your bike ready, leather jacket on
Rev it up to nine, and let the engine go
Get 'em down the highway at the speed of light,
All I wanna feel is the wind in my eyes,
With stacks of money in my pocket
And all systems ready to go.

With a feebled mind, we kick it into gear
Steady, there she goes, my flyin' overdrive.
Get 'em down the highway at the speed of light,
All I wanna feel is the wind in my eyes,
With stacks of money in my pocket
And all systems ready to go.

Hear the engines roll now, hear the engines roll now,
Hear the engines roll now, hear the engines roll now,
Hear the engines roll now, wind and fire, burning rubber tires!

Get your bike ready, leather jacket on
Rev it up to nine, and let the engine go
Get 'em down the highway at the speed of light,
All I wanna feel is the wind in my eyes,
With stacks of money in my pocket
And all systems ready to go.

Hear the engines roll now, hear the engines roll now,
Hear the engines roll now, hear the engines roll now,
Hear the engines roll now, wind and fire, burning rubber tires!

Hear the engines roll now, hear the engines roll now,
Hear the engines roll now, hear the engines roll now,
Hear the engines roll now, wind and fire, burning rubber tires!

Hear the engines roll now, hear the engines roll now,
Hear the engines roll now, hear the engines roll now,
Hear the engines roll now, wind and fire, burning rubber tires!

MST3K/Lemon Demon Version

With a pickle mind, we kick the nipple beer
Steady as a goat, we're flying over trout
Ghetto down the highway at the speed of light
All I wanna feel now is the wind in my eyes
Sack of monkeys in my pocket, my sister's ready to go

Hear the engines roar now!
Idiot control now!
Hideous control now!
Ninny on the road now!
Minnie in control
Wheels on fire, burning rubber tires

Blurry jelly rolls now
Hiddy lets it go now
Needy inches bow down
Pitying a poor boy
Here the engines roar
Bees on pie, burning rubber tires
