Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

It was a hot night
It was a night for speeding
And we were in the mood
Sweet music playing
Selections really rocking
She start behaving rude
The way she wining
Could tell she have a engine
That really built for speed
That was no problem, cuz i′m an engine driver
And i could handle speed
She had me
Swinging engine, swinging engine all night
Swinging engine, swinging engine all night
Swinging engine, swinging engine all night
Swinging engine, swing she engine all night
I... klataye!
Now we are speeding, the engine really steaming
And i am pumping gears!
Wearing my seatbelt
Racing glove and my helmet
I riding with no fear
She start vibrating now i hear crank shaft knocking
Should i ease up or not
Now i smell gasolene, with all the spark that flying
The engine might blow up
But me still nah ease up
Swinging engine, swinging engine all night
Swinging engine, swinging engine all night
Swinging engine, swinging engine all night
Swinging engine, ah swing she engine all night
But me still nah ease off
Swinging engine, swinging engine all night
Swinging engine, swinging engine all night
In she gear box, in she gear box all night
Swinging engine, swinging engine all night
Klataye first gear!
Klataye second!
Klataye third!
Klataye fourth!
Klataye fifth!
Klataye reverse!
Radawwwe hand brakes!
Road hog! road hog!
But me still nah ease off
Swinging engine, swinging engine all night
Swinging engine, swinging engine all night
Klataye in the gear box all night




Klataye in the gear box all night
Swinging engine, swinging engine all night
