Highway Star Lyrics

Nobody Gonna Take My Car, I'm Gonna Race It To The Ground
Nobody Gonna Beat My Car, It's Gonna Break The Speed Of Sound
Oooh It's A Killer Machine, It's Got Everything
Like A Driving Power, Big Fat Tires And Everything

I Love Her And I Need...

    The comment before me is wrong.
    The phrase "8-Cylinders all mine" is about a car with a V8 (8-cylinder) engine.
    Most fast sports cars and muscle cars have 8-cylinder engines.
    Cars with V8 engines can sustain very high speeds for a long time on the highway (in other words they are Highway Stars), they tend to be pretty fast, and have beautiful sound.
    Most common cars have only 4 or 6 cylinders.

    Its all about the drug speed :eg 8 cylinders all mine meaning 8 pills (cylinders/capsules).

    Anybody who owns a fast car and likes women can pretty much figure this out without and help.
