They all looked out for traffic
The raccoon eyed the possum
And glanced across the street
He knew that he was faster
No way he could be beat

Then along came a rabbit
He’d never seen before
Well, he would be a challenge
He’d win the dash for sure

They scanned the road for traffic
As dusk turned into night
It looked to be clear sailing
Not a single car in sight

They all had heard the stories
The old folks liked to tell
‘Bout those who tried before them
When it didn’t end up well

But this time it was different
The 'coon took up his stance
He looked both ways for movement
He wouldn’t take a chance

The rabbit and the possum
Were just as ready too
The 'coon began to wonder
If the possum had a clue

They didn’t see a headlight
They all began their dash
Then all at once it happened
The flash! The squeal! The smash!

Oooh! Oooh! Oooh!
