NOT Fontaines DC, but close

NOT Fontaines DC, but close

Fountains DC - It‘s all about the vibe.

Sunday morning’s really boring

Unless you’re at Le Mans

Coz Formula One

Doesn’t get going

Until about ten past one

I get dismayed at the track parade

It lacks spectacle and glory

If I’m honest

I’m frankly dismayed

At drivers on the back of a diesel lorry.

CHORUS

They’ve gotta work harder

To earn my dollar

It’s all about the vibe

It’s all about the vibe

It‘s all about the vibe

It’s all about the vibe

It‘s all about the vibe.

Maybe I’m just getting older

In the past this sport was much, much bolder

V10s, V12s in the mix

Not just the monotone drone

Of V6 after V6 .....(after V6).

It makes me sick

I think they’ve missed a trick

I liked the noise when it came fast and thick

These rules were written by a dipstick.

CHORUS

They’ve gotta work harder

To earn my dollar

It’s all about the vibe

It’s all about the vibe

It‘s all about the vibe.

Think for minute

How does it look?

How does it sound?

Holy fook!

Do something about it

By hook or by crook

Take a leaf out

Of someone else’s book.

At Le Mans you get a range of sounds

V8 Corvettes shake the ground

Flat 6 Porsches

Sound like bees

Even turbo Toyota

Please my ears

And it’s been like this for years.

F1, change gear

Change gear F1

Or we’ll be gone

Or we’ll all be fookin’ gone

It’s all about the vibe

It’s all about the vibe

It‘s all about the vibe.
