Track Name: Take Me for a Ride
We can’t say we’ve just begun
No, this ain’t our first time
We can’t blame it on we’re young
I see those laugh lines

Why don’t you drive by tonight
Come take me for a ride

Let those clock hands spin round round
Let that big sun fall down down
Let me take you on the town
Don’t care what those folks say

I don’t even have one doubt
Wanna kiss that pretty mouth
And then keep on kissin’ south
Cause you’re still the girl I dream about

All these years and I’m not bored
Oh no, baby
Cause oh my lord, here comes my girl
In a flatbed Ford

Why don’t you drive by tonight
Come take me for a ride

Let those clock hands spin round round
Let that big sun fall down down
Let me take you on the town
Don’t care what those folks say

I don’t even have one doubt
Wanna kiss that pretty mouth
And then keep on kissin’ south
Cause you’re still the girl I dream about

Ride, ride, ride
C’mon, cowgirl
Ride, ride, ride
If we don’t then who will?
