Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I bought a Big Chief Pontiac Eat up the road and that's a fact 500 horsepower under my hood Custom paint job sure looks good Fender skirts and white wall tires You outta hear my pistons fire
You can have your Cadillac All I want is my Pontiac You can keep your Cadillac All I want is my Pontiac My Pontiac. My Pontiac
My Pontiac. My Pontiac

I gotta jet intake with a power glide I gotta champion chain with an overdrive I burn nitro in my tank You outta hear my motor crank
You can have your Cadillac All I want is my Pontiac You can keep that Cadillac All I want is my Pontiac My Pontiac. My Pontiac
My Pontiac. My Pontiac
