Letra:

 

I’m a steamroller baby, I'm 'bout to roll all over you
I'm a steamroller baby, I'm 'bout to roll all over you
I'm gonna inject your soul with some sweet rock'n'roll

And shoot you full of rhythm and blues
I'm a cement mixer, a churning urn of burning funk
I'm a cement mixer, a churning urn of burning funk

I’m a demolition derby, a hefty hunk, steaming junk

 

I’m a steamroller baby, I'm 'bout to roll all over you
I'm a steamroller baby, I'm 'bout to roll all over you

I'm gonna inject your soul with some sweet rock'n'roll

And shoot you full of rhythm and blues
I'm a napalm-bomb guaranteed to blow your mind
I'm a napalm-bomb guaranteed to blow your mind
If I can't have your love now baby, there won't be nothing left behind
