CHUGGIN' RED BULLS AND SWALLOWIN' THEM CAFFEINE PILLS,
STAYIN' AWAKE'S WHAT THIS COWBOY'S GOTTA DO,
OPEN THE WINDOWS, BLASTIN' COUNTRY RADIO,
ANYTHING TO KEEP ALERT AND GET HOME TO YOU.

(CHORUS)
RED BULLS AND CAFFEINE PILLS,
THE DEVIL'S TRYIN' TO KNOCK ME OUT, BUT I'M STAYIN' UP ON,
RED BULLS AND CAFFEINE PILLS,
IF IT HADN'T BEEN FOR THEM, I MIGHTA HIT THAT TRUCK.
IT'S A SCARY SITUATION DRIVIN' HALFWAY 'CROSS THE NATION,
BUT I'M DOIN' WHAT I HAVE TO DO,
DRINKIN' RED BULLS AND TAKING CAFFEINE PILLS TO GET TO YOU.

TWO AND A HALF DAYS, I ONLY STOPPED FOR FOOD AND GAS,
ONCOMING HEADLIGHTS ARE BLINDING MY EYES,
PIECES OF RETREADS AND ROADKILL LYIN' EVERYWHERE,
NODDING OUT IS RISKY, GOTTA MAKE IT HOME ALIVE.

(CHORUS)
RED BULLS AND CAFFEINE PILLS,
THE DEVIL'S TRYIN' TO KNOCK ME OUT, BUT I'M STAYIN' UP ON,
RED BULLS AND CAFFEINE PILLS,
IF IT HADN'T BEEN FOR THEM, I COULDA HIT THAT TRUCK.
IT'S A SCARY SITUATION DRIVIN' HALFWAY 'CROSS THE NATION,
BUT I'M DOIN' WHAT I HAVE TO DO,
DRINKIN' RED BULLS AND TAKING CAFFEINE PILLS TO GET TO YOU.

(BRIDGE)
SPEED TRAPS, TRUCK STOPS, MOUNTAINSIDES WITH FALLING ROCKS,
I'M TRYIN' HARD TO STAY AWAKE,
AND THIS IS WHAT IT'S GONNA TAKE.

NINETY TWO MILES AND I CAN ALMOST TASTE YOUR LIPS,
I'M GETTIN' KINDA PUNCHY FROM FIGHTIN' OFF SLEEP.
WHAT KEEPS ME GOIN' IS THE WAY THAT YOU SWAY YOUR HIPS,
AND HELP FROM MY FRIENDS THAT ARE LEGAL AND CHEAP.

(CHORUS)
RED BULLS AND CAFFEINE PILLS,
THE DEVIL'S TRYIN' TO KNOCK ME OUT, BUT I'M STAYIN' UP ON,
RED BULLS AND CAFFEINE PILLS,
IF IT HADN'T BEEN FOR THEM, I WOULDA HIT THAT TRUCK.
IT'S A SCARY SITUATION DRIVIN' HALFWAY 'CROSS THE NATION,
BUT I'M DOIN' WHAT I HAVE TO DO,
DRINKIN' RED BULLS AND TAKING CAFFEINE PILLS TO GET TO YOU.
