"Collision of Worlds" is the first song that plays during the end credits of the 2011 Disney/Pixar animated film, Cars 2. It is performed by Brad Paisley and Robbie Williams and is lyrically told from the perspective of Lightning McQueen and Mater about their trip around the world.

Lyrics

Whoa!

At the first sign of the morning light, Old Glory's in the sky
'Cross the pond, it's afternoon and the Union Jack flies high
We're on our first cup of coffee, we're on our third cup of tea
And we can't pretend to live on different planets, you and me
In this collision of worlds, watch the new day dawn on a distant shore
In this collision of worlds, oh, you can't sit this out no more (out no more, out no more)

Abbey Road, Route 66, CIA, to the MI-6
Right lane, left lane, metric, imperial, pounds, dollars, howdy, cheerio!
A v8 growls, to a v12 screams, hail to the chief, well, God save the Queen!
Cops, bobbies, tabasco, wasabi, pistachio ice cream!
In this collision of worlds, well, it's too late and you can't stop it now
In this collision of worlds, yeah, find you a place and just watch it now, watch it now!

(Instrumental)

Yeah, you're a good old boy, well, you're a decent bloke
I say it's irony, I say it's a joke
When I look around, now I can see, we ain't so different, you and me

Meat and potatoes, bangers and mash, dollars, pounds, dosh, cash
Autobahn, to the rising sun, the I10, to the M1
Congress, Parliament, President, the Queen, petrol, you say, gasoline
Now grab your bird, and get your girl, now it's a small world!
Collision of worlds, watch the new day dawn on a distant shore
In this collision of worlds, no, you can't sit this out no more
It's a collision of worlds, it's too late and you can't stop it now
Collision of worlds, find you a place and watch it now
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh
