Get cracking, go for it!
Get moving crack the whip

But crackpots crave for some fun
Smoking crack a tragedy in the sun
Cracking software a test of wills
Cracked copies risking the bill

Crack a code
That’s a big load
Crack at the job
Shows a big flop
Crack a safe
Not nicely made
A crack shot
Is all that’s required

Not cracking under pressure
Lawyers knocking at the defendant’s composure

Driving’s  a real pleasure
If not cracking 70 miles per hour
Crackdown on speeding
To rope them in

At the crack of dawn
Lots of movements
Cracking the time
To earn a living


A crack shot with lots of potential
Crack at the job is very essential
Crack in the head working like a dog
And cracking up from overwork
