Song Lyric Sunday 9/2/18 – Let’s Go

Car/Cars is our theme for this week’s Song Lyric Sunday. Well, it fits the theme if I use the band instead of a song with that, right? Right?!?!?!?

Well, OK. Instead of specifically doing a song with that theme, I’m instead going to go with my favorite song by the band The Cars. This song was featured on the album Candy-O and has long been my favorite song by the group.

So here’s the 1979 song “Let’s Go” by The Cars (written by Ric Ocasek):

She’s driving away
With the dim lights on
And she’s making a play
She can’t go wrong

She never waits too long

She’s winding them down
On her clock machine
And she won’t give up
‘Cause she’s seventeen

She’s a frozen fire
She’s my one desire
And I don’t want to hold her down
Don’t want to break her crown
When she says

“Let’s go”
I like the nightlife baby
She says
I like the nightlife baby
She says
“Let’s go”

She’s laughing inside
‘Cause they can’t refuse
She’s so beautiful now
She doesn’t wear her shoes

She never likes to choose

She’s got wonderful eyes
And a risque mouth
And when I ask her before
She said she’s holding out

She’s a frozen fire
She’s my one desire
And I don’t want to hold her down
Don’t want to break her crown
When she says

“Let’s go”
I like the nightlife baby
She says
I like the nightlife baby
She says
“Let’s go”

Ooh
I like the nightlife baby
She says
I like the nightlife baby
She says
“Let’s go”

  1. You picked a great song! If WP had a “love” button, I would have pressed it. The Cars is my FAVE group! (See my CARS shirt in my profile pic!). I had the same thought as you did: song by the group fulfills the theme. So far, I can’t decide which of many songs to use!
