Can't Catch Me

There was a mighty chicken truck
Whose name was Can’t Catch Me
He traveled to the coast and back
From sea to shining sea
All the smokies tried to catch him
They just wouldn’t let him be
But somehow ol’ Can’t Catch Me 
Just kept on slipping free
Well then one day ol’ smokey bear
Was hiding in the grass
When Can’t Catch Me came strolling by
He jumped out on his ass
He waited til ol’ Can’t Catch Me
Moved to the left to pass
Then he hit his lights and sirens
And said “I’ve got you now, at last!”
But, Can’t Catch Me had seen this all
Just once or twice before
And he handed that bear his paperwork
As he stepped up to his door
He said “What’s up?
What’d ya stop me for?
‘Cause I know it ain’t for speedin’
This truck only does 64!”
Well that bear was mad as a hornet
He just knew it wasn’t true
But his radar gun was busted 
And there weren’t nothin’ he could do
He cussed, and stomped, and shouted
And swore “I will get you!”
But Can’t Catch Me was off again
With just a “Too-da-loo!”
He’s probably still out there somewhere
Between those shining seas
And if you ever see him
You just smile and salute
That ol’ truck called
Can’t Catch Me!
