1. Brand New Car

From the recording VIII


There once was a girl in days gone byShe lived at the oceansideShe only had one care in the worldShe didn’t want to beg a rideBut suddenly a sweet surpriseCame right out of the blueShe called her friends with tears in her eyesSaid, “I’ve got some real good news”My Daddy gave me a brand new carIt’s a Rocket 88Gonna drive it up to the starsLet’s go – Now don’t be lateShe liked the feel of the wheel in her OldsmobileShe said, “From way up high we’ll look back downSee all the streets, all the avenuesIn every city and townHey, there’s Mustang SallyMaybelline in a Coupe DeVilleHere comes a little red CorvetteRollin’ on down the hillWay down below there’s a GTOI pray it won’t collideWith a little Deuce Coupe on Dead Man’s CurveCruisin’ side by sideThey’re playing our tune, Fly Me To the MoonAnd we’re taking off tonightFrom here to the stratosphereOut of reach, out of sight”So if you’re getting’ your kicks on Route 66And a Rocket comes alongShe’ll be riding in style and she’ll throw you a smileWhile she’s singing this little song
