Hands on a Hardbody the Musical - Human Drama Kind Of Thing Lyrics

Everything you thought you knew
Leave that all behind
Just keep one hand on the truck
And try not to lose your mind.
This is not a child's game
This is not a game of chance
It's a sharp-honed skill
It's a test of will
It's keepin' still
When the devil tells you
Dance
It's more than a contest
It's more than dumb luck
It's more than extra cash
It is much more than a truck
Someone's gonna cry here
Someone will go insane
Someone will be laughing
At someone else's pain
Someone's bound for glory
The rest are bound to lose
You'll get a hundred different stories
With a hundred point of views
Every texan needs a ride
And this truck is bona fide
But only one can grab that ring
And god alone knows what he'll bring
It's a human drama kind of thing

FRANK
This is frank nugent, comin' to you live
From the "hands on a hardbody" contest
Here at floyd king nissan!

Floyd king nissan
Pick up and go
Some are on vacation
Some are unemployed
Someone will drive home elated
Someone will walk home destroyed
Everybody's broke here
Tryin' to make ends meet
Pay a debt back, had a setback
Got to get back on our feet
So don't make any judgments
Let the players play
Leave the judging to the judge
Who'll judge us all on judgment day
Bring your family come alone
Grab a corndog or a cone
Get yourself a bleacher seat
In the shade out of the heat
For this human drama kind of thing!
If I win this truck, all my troubles are through
Just keep holding on
That's what I'm gonna do
Someone's getting lucky
Now who will it be
It's me
It's me

FRANK: Today's contestants underwent a grueling screening process, did they not?
CINDY: We drew their names out of a hat.
Business cards or beer coasters, it's all in the luck of the draw!

I put my name in early
There's tricks that you can do
I sprinkled mine with cola
So it sticks to you like glue
I put my faith in jesus
Hhe always sees me through
I put my name in thirty-two times
Thirty-two times
I got six mouths to feed and these are troublin' times
I rode my bike here every day
That pile of bills won't go away
I drive a car ain't got no brakes
And i'll do anything it takes!
I never won nothing, I came all the same
I thought I would die when they called out my name
I prayed for a chance to come year after year
It's here
It's here
It's here
Like the great ali did
When he changed his name from cassius
Everybody's hoping to rise once more from the ashes
Oh lord
It's been a real tough year
Thank you for this chance right here
I'm shaking and I'm sick with fear
But can I bend your ear a minute
Look at all these people in it
Jesus I just got to win this truck
This truck
This truck this truck this truck

CINDY: The rules! one time, and one time only!
MIKE: Breaks are fifteen minutes once every six hours.
CINDY: You may not lean, squat, or rest your legs.
MIKE: At no time may you remove your hand from the truck.
CINDY: And that hand must be covered!
We got cotton gloves, courtesy of true value hardware.
MIKE: No guns. no profanity.
CINDY: No alcohol or drugs.

Don't make any judgments
Let the players play
Leave the judging to the judge
Who'll judge us all on judgment day
This could be my ticket out
Long as i just stick it out
Get a good seat in the stands
For the laying on of hands

CINDY: Gloves on!

It's a human drama kind of thing
I'll stand here for days in the crowds and the heat
I ain't givin' up
I'm the cowboy to beat
Someone's getting lucky now who will it be?
It's me
It's me
I've been feeling kind of low
No work since two years ago
Guess who's driving home this truck
It's me
I'm little but I think i'm big
Gonna get all rambo on this rig
Here's redemption no tax exemption
But transportation and inspiration
If I just stand and I keep my hand on this thing
It's a human drama kind of thing
I'll honk my horn again, be reborn again
Busted flat, now I'm up to bat and I swing
The way it's looking here to me
The winner's gonna have to be benny
A body's got to feel his worth
Reason for his time on earth
Guess who's driving home this truck
It's me
Can I bend your ear a minute
Won't you let me drive home in it
Jesus I just got to win this truck
This truck
This truck

MIKE and CINDY: Hands on!
