Hey, Little Cobra
Hey, Little Cobra, don't you know
you're gonna to shut 'em down

I took my Cobra down to the track,
hitched to the back of my Cadillac,

Everyone was there just a waiting for me
There were plenty of Stingrays and XKEs,

Spring little Cobra getting ready to strike
Spring Little Cobra with all  your might
Spring little Cobra getting ready to strike
Spring Little Cobra with all  your might

Hey, Little Cobra, don't you know
you are going to shut them down

When the flag went down, you could hear rubber burn,
The Stingray pulled me going into the turn

I hung a big shift, and I got into high,
When I when I flew by the Stingray, I waved bye  bye.

Spring little Cobra getting ready to strike
Spring Little Cobra with all  your might
Spring little Cobra getting ready to strike
Spring Little Cobra with all  your might

Hey, Little Cobra, Don't you know
you are going to shut 'em down

Around the turn into the straight away
I was blowing off everything that got in my way,

Stingrays and Jags were so far behind
I took my Cobra out of gear and let it coast to the line.

Spring little Cobra getting ready to strike
Spring Little Cobra with all  your might
Spring little Cobra getting ready to strike
Spring Little Cobra with all  your might

Hey, Little Cobra, Don't you know
you are going to shut 'em down
Shut'em down, shut'em down, shut'em down...




"Hey, Little Cobra" was written by Carol Conner in 1964. She apparently wrote "Hey, Little Cobra after she'd gone to Shelby American and purchased her very own Little Cobra. Her biggest hit was "To Know Him is to Love Him" selling 2 million copies.
The Rip Chords were Bruce Johnston and Terry Day (Melcher). Both  Bruce and Terry played with other surfer groups like the Beach Boys as well as under a lot of different named groups of their own. These two studio surfers laid the foundations on which the California sound of the 60's would be built. And they recorded and released "Hey, Little Cobra." in 1964.
