Ronny & The Daytonas


G.T.O.

Ronnie and the Daytonas

Written by John Wilkin


- Peak chart position # 4 in 1964

- The title track from their 1964 debut album for another Beach Boys' soundalike,

this one from Nashville. The Daytonas had a little trouble hitting the high tenor

notes in the studio, so they resorted to speeding up their voices for this song.


TRANSCRIBER'S NOTE: Some lyrics are spelled phonetically, i.e., "why-ee-eye-

ine" = whine,

so as to look more like what was sung.



Little GTO, you're really lookin' fine

Three deuces and a four-speed and a 389

Listen to her tachin' up now, listen to her why-ee-eye-ine

C'mon and turn it on, wind it up, blow it out GTO


Wa-wa, (mixed with "Yeah, yeah, little GTO") wa, wa, wa, wa, wa, wa

(mixed with "Yeah, yeah, little GTO")

Wa-wa, (mixed with "Yeah, yeah, little GTO") wa, wa, wa, wa, wa, wa

(mixed with "Yeah, yeah, little GTO")

Wa-wa (mixed with "Ahhh, little GTO") wa, wa, wa, wa, wa, wa


You oughta see her on a road course or a quarter mile

This little modified Pon-Pon has got plenty of style

She beats the gassers and the rail jobs, really drives 'em why-ee-eye-ild

C'mon and turn it on, wind it up, blow it out GTO



Wa-wa, (mixed with "Yeah, yeah, little GTO") wa, wa, wa, wa, wa, wa

(mixed with "Yeah, yeah, little GTO")

Wa-wa, (mixed with "Yeah, yeah, little GTO") wa, wa, wa, wa, wa, wa

(mixed with "Yeah, yeah, little GTO")

Wa-wa (mixed with "Ahhh, little GTO") wa, wa, wa, wa, wa, wa

MIXTURE

Gonna save all my money (turnin' it on, blowin' it out) and buy a GTO (turnin' it on,

blowin' it out)

Get a helmet and a roll bar (turnin' it on, blowin' it out) and I'll be ready to go

(turnin'

it on, blowin' it out)

Take it out to Pomona (turnin' it on, blowin' it out)
