Damn right, red light, ran right through it
Possible triple entendre?
1) Earl drove through a set of traffic lights when they were on red — this is illegal, but nowhere near as bad as the other things that him and Vince have done (and are about to do) in this song. This sets the scene for the rest of the verse.
2) Referring to the last line, running a red light is a a saying used when somebody metaphorically crosses the line (goes too far). Earl ran a red light by asking these girls “what the ass they like”.
3) Finally, a red light district is a place where you would find brothels and whorehouses. Earl is telling Vince here that despite his love for sex, he drove straight past a place where he could get an easy fuck. Of course, he wants a little more from the girl in his car than just sex…
