The Lyrics

Sad song, about a man who loves a race, but keeps coming last, & gets an unwanted nickname because of it. Some say... it may be about the former BBC Top Gear presenter James May. All I know is... it's NOT the Stig!
Slow Jim, Slow Jim
There's a rush that drives me deep inside
But each race ever I run in
Here I am in last again
I can see there's no-one behind

I'm so damn lonely
Cos I'm so far behind
I'm so damn lonely
Wanna shake off this tag of mine

Mayday, Mayday
Was Bristol born, Jan of '63
& since then, I've been driftin' away
Comin' last got it's grip on me
That's when I learned to drive

I've been in top gear
But I'm so far behind
I hate it when those two drone
But what else is new?
I'm so damn lonely

I hate it when those two drone
But what else is new?
I'm so damn lonely

They fly by, speedin'
People pass me by
No matter if you're Stig
No matter what you drive

Slow Jim, Slow Jim
There's a rush that drives me deep inside
But each race ever I drive in
Here I am in last again
I can see there's no-one behind

I've been in top gear
But I'm so far behind
I'm so damn lonely

Slow Jim, oh yeah (oh)
Some say I'm better known as Captain... Slow, yeah

An artist can announce their arrival with a particularly good cover, made uniquely their own. I'm no singer nor musician, so if you can perform it, please send me a version & lots of royalties!
