Killing is my business

Mechanix is the eighth and last track off of Megadeth's debut album Killing Is My Business... and Business Is Good!. It's Megadeth's version of the song "The Mechanix".

"The Mechanix" appears on several pre-Kill 'Em All Metallica demos. Metallica later reworked this song into the song "The Four Horsemen", which appeared on Kill 'Em All. It has different lyrics than the original song.

Megadeth then recorded the original song as "Mechanix" (dropping the word "the" from the title), but at a faster pace and a few other changes. It is closer to the original than "The Four Horsemen" is.

LyricsEdit

 Imagine you were at my station
 And you brought your motor to me
 Your a burner yeah a real motor car
 Said you wanna get your order filled
 Made me shiver when I put it in
 Pumping just won't do ya know luckily for you
 
 Who ever though you'd be better
 At turning a screw than me
 I do it for my life
 Made my drive shaft crank
 Made my pistons bulge
 Made my ball bearings melt from the heat
 
 We were shifting hard when we took off
 Put tonight all four on the floor
 When we hit top end ya know it feels too slow
 Said you wanna get your order filled
 And ya know it's more than enough
 Oh one more time ya know I'm in love
 
 Who ever though you'd be better
 At turning a screw than me
 I do it for my life
 Made my drive shaft crank
 Made my pistons bulge
 Made my ball bearings melt from the heat
 
 I'm giving you my room service
 And you know it's more than enough
 Oh one more time ya know I'm in love
 Said you wanna get your order filled
 Made me shiver when I put it in
 Pumping just won't do ya know luckily for you
 
 Who ever though you'd be better
 At turning a screw than me
 I do it for my life
 Made my drive shaft crank
 Made my pistons bulge
 Made my ball bearings melt from the heat
