The Lyrics

...i was just kidding about the BMW...what i really want is a corvette...
my toy...boy...its so smooth
along the coast, lazy days, i cruise
jealous guys...i hear their sighs
engine cries...how it flies
you'll notice me when i come flashin' through
i was in middle age...and anxious too

i got a 'vette...now i'm zoomin'
its like nothing else to make you feel sure you've arrived
i got a 'vette...now i'm zoomin'
the men are a-gawkin'...the ladies are stalkin' now

this toy...boy...its my friend
folks say, "wow...this car's the end"
i roll fleetly down the street
its so neat...fresh and sweet
i feel my image is enhanced again
this is eleven on a scale of ten

i got a 'vette...now i'm zoomin'
its like nothing else to make you feel sure you've arrived
i got a 'vette...now i'm zoomin'
the men are a-gawkin'...the ladies are stalkin' now

crisis, mid-life...oh what is one to do ?
you can't be slummin' in a suburu
it was a lot to pay...you know its true
but gosh, this car's so fine
with seats of luscious leather

so...i got a 'vette...now i'm zoomin'
its like nothing else to make you feel sure you've arrived
i got a 'vette...now i'm zoomin'
the men are a-gawkin'...the ladies are stalkin' now

talk about cars...this is a special one
the mileage, stupid...but it sure is fun
i like to peel out with the motor gunned
cause it sounds sublime...and drivin' its a pleasure
its a joy that's hard to measure

its a jewel...the best that i have found
built with precision..it won't let you down
it draws attention when you drive around
it has gorgeous lines...a look that one can treasure
an automotive pleasure
a thrill beyond all measure

yeah...i got a 'vette...now i'm zoomin
i got a 'vette...now i'm zoomin
i got a 'vette...now i'm zoomin'
my life was halfway through
i feel i was due

Very good - especially liked the Suburu line. I'm having a go at this one at the moment but it's a tricky one. I know this song very well, been a fan for 30 years now but he's not well known over here. Can't understand why because I think he's a great songwriter & musician. If you see this comment can you let me know if he is/was well known in the States
alvin - April 09, 2009 - Report this comment
thanks andy....in the US he has only had three hits...hello, its me, i saw the light and bang the drum all day...but i'm with you...i'd put him in the top five of all musical artists...in fact my first child has todd as a middle name
