Driving Down the Motorway

SYNOPSIS: A young man picks a woman up in his car and together they begin to really hit it off.

I’m driving down the motorway singing ‘whoa, whoa, whoa!’
You’re walking along and I hear you say ‘yo, yo, yo!’
I lean out of my window and ask ‘hey baby, do you wanna have a ride?’
And you flip me the finger and say ‘boy, I think it’s time you swallow your pride.’
I laugh and ask ‘didn’t your mother ever teach you it was always rude to tease?’
And you reply ‘didn’t your mother teach you, when you beg, to get down on your knees.’
I was not yet begging, but I am sure it was beginning to look that way
and with but a word she captured my breath and now there was nothing left to say.

I try to come up with another line, but you say ‘boy, that’s enough;
I realise that you want me, but you don’t ever have to talk so tough.
Moreover, you needn’t lie, for a facade I can see straight through.’
And I say ‘girl, from here onwards, I only wanna be with you.’
I think the line is just so fantastic, and, what’s more, it causes you to smile,
and you say, with a laugh ‘perhaps I could stay with you for just a little while.’
Such, is but music to my ears as I open up the door, and allow you to ride shotgun.
Boy, does it feel just so terrific to have finally found my someone.

So, there we are, the two of us in the car, singing to the song that we love,
as we shout and scream the lyrics to the clouds hanging in the sky up above.
I turn to you and check you out, from your head to your feet, as you look away,
unbeknownst to me you noticed what I did as you smile and begin to say;
‘this is not even a first date, so don’t let those fantasies go to your head,
so please, would you kindly be a gentleman and think some other thoughts instead.’
I nod, in reluctance, whilst in my mind I delve into the mouth of madness,
without you by my side today, my life would be condemned by utter sadness.
