If Yer a Tarheel Driver

Sung to the tune of "If You're Happy and You Know It"

If ya lift it in a corner
You might spin
If you lift it in a corner
You might spin
If ya lift it in a corner
You can count yourself a goner
So you better keep you flippin'
Right foot in.

If ya turn when ya brakes
That's a sin
If ya turn when ya brakes
That's a sin
If ya turn when ya brakes
The whole damn car rotates
And yer view of where yer goin's
Where ya been.

If ya cross yer arms while steerin'
You'll confess
If ya cross yer arms while steerin'
You'll confess
If ya cross yer arms while steerin'
The words ya might be hearin'
Are "damn, how'd I get in
Such as mess?"

If yer a Tarheel driver
Clap real loud
If yer a Tarheel driver
Clap real loud
'Cause if yer a Tarheel driver
We know yer a survivor
All those dumb mistakes,
That's not allowed.

If yer a Tarheel driver
Stomp yer feet
If yer a Tarheel driver
Stomp yer feet
'Cause if yer a Tarheel driver
We know you'd bet a fiver
That Tarheel Sports Car Club
Cannot be beat!

 

We Are Tarheels

Sung to the tune of "My Country 'Tis of Thee"

We've all come here today
With our sports cars to play
And get our thrills.
The course looks really fast.
We're gonna have a blast.
Drive like each run could be our last.
We are Tarheels.

We'll all have so much fun.
Drive like hell every run.
How good it feels.
And if we start to spin,
We'll just put on a grin
Then neatly tuck it right back in;
We are Tarheels.

And when this day is through
We'll have a nice cold brew;
How good it feels.
Remember with great pride
That most fantastic ride
That cast all doubts aside
We are Tarheels.

Yes, when this day is past
We'll remember to the last
How good it feels.
To've pushed hard on the gas.
To have gone really fast.
To've really kicked some ass!
We are Tarheels.

 

My Money's Always on Tarheels

Sung to the tune of "Camptown Races"

Tarheel drivers have good times,
Doo-dah, Doo-dah.
Tarheel drivers drive the line,
Oh, de doo-dah day.
They're born to drive real hard.
They're trained to go real fast.
And other clubs are gettin' tard
Of Tarheels kickin' ass.

Chorus:
Oh, de doo-dah-dee.
Oh, de doo-dah-day.
My money's always on Tarheels;
Those folks are always bad!

Tarheel drivers have more fun,
Doo-dah, Doo-dah.
They give it hell on every run.
Oh, de doo-dah day.
They're trained to drive real smooth.
They're trained to drive real good.
But most of all they're trained to say,
"Thank you for the wood."

Chorus:
Who'll bet on CCR?
Who'll bet on Triad?
My money's always on Tarheels;
Those folks are always bad!
