Carol Connors wrote the song “Hey Little Cobra” at Carroll Shelby’s urging, and likely in large part for Shelby’s promise to give her a Cobra of her own if she did! The song was a hit, and today ranks as one of the top car songs of all time. What you may not know is that Connors also wrote the holiday tune “Santa’s Got a Cobra,” or another more well known hit that she co-wrote: “Gonna Fly Now,” also known as the theme from Rocky. As Connors has said, “Hey Little Cobra” got her a Cobra, but the theme from Rocky got her a house in Beverly Hills. Courtesy of Shelby American, Inc.
