The story: At full racing speed, it only takes 15 seconds to make a full lap at Bristol Motor Speedway.  Round & Round is a silly ditty about all the things you can & cannot do in those 15 seconds.

LYRICS:

Round and Round and Round you go
You can make 4 laps in a minute or so
There’s lots of things that you can’t do
In 15 seconds…Except drive on through
Round and Round and Round you go

You can pop the top on your favorite beer
Unscrew the lid of your moonshine, dear
Take a bite of your favorite foot-long
Then whatta ya know the time’s all gone.

You can’t brew a cup of your favorite coffee
Or write a page in your diary
No time to compose your favorite cheese plate
They’ve lapped again. You’re gonna be lat

Round and Round and Round you go
You can make 4 laps in a minute or so
There’s lots of things that you can’t do
In 15 seconds…except drive on through
Round and Round and Round you go

Bristol’s home to the fastest quarter mile
No time to laugh, wink, wince or smile
Keep your eyes peeled on the track
If you miss this round, they’ll be right back…

You can pop the top on your favorite beer
Unscrew the lid of your moonshine, dear
Take a bite of your favorite foot-long
Then whatta ya know the time’s all gone.

Round and Round and Round you go
You can make 4 laps in a minute or so
There’s lots of things that you can’t do
In 15 seconds…except drive on through
Round and Round and Round you go

Bristol’s home to the fastest quarter mile
Pop the top on your favorite beer
No time to laugh, wink, wince or smile
Unscrew the lid of your moonshine, dear
