Lyrics

I'm a toy truck and I love to roar

Michael revs me up and I race along the floor

I spin around the bedleg, do wheelies down the hall

When I top 100, I'm halfway up the wall

Chorus

He's bad

he's mean

he's a mean machine

I'm a truck

Diesel!

Roaring around the bedroom, what is that I see?

Johnson and his house is attracting me

Wind my wheels up tight, throw my engine into gear

(Johnson) Diesel, not my house, stay away from here!

Chorus

He's bad

he's mean

he's a mean machine


Diesel!


I lurk behind the toy box

and try to trap McDuff

She says she isn't frightened

but I know it's only bluff

perhaps I'll only squash her, perhaps a little bump

(McDuff) oh, don't come any closer, or I'll give you back a thump!

Chorus

He's bad

he's mean

he's a mean machine

Oh, can't you take a joke!

Diesel!

Now I feel like speeding, but Alfred's in the way

He still bears all the bruises I gave him yesterday!

I'm revving up my motor, I'm picking out my path

(Alfred), oh, go and bother someone else, I want to take a bath!

Chorus

He's bad

he's mean

he's a mean machine

I don't like Water

Diesel!

I know I'm very noisy

I know I'm fairly rough

You might be surprised to learn most of it is bluff

but when the day is over

and I find I'm alone

I'm not as brave or boastful when playing on my own

Chorus

He's bad?

he's mean?

he's a mean machine

I'm alright!

For a Diesel!

When the sun is set

When my motor is cooling down

I find the silent scary and my window wipers frown

I want my friends to like me

but I'm scared to like them back

I'm not a mean machine at all, I'm just a scaredy cat!

Chorus

He's this, He's that

He's just a pussy cat

What was that?

I try to be like Johnson

and sit there all day

I try to be like sweet McDuff

and sing my fears away

Instead I'm just a small tow truck

As noisy as can be

I'm bad, I'm a mean machine

Nobody likes me!

Chorus

He's this, He's that

He's just a pussy cat

Diesel!
