PINK CADILLAC

Live 03 Oct 2003 version


[Spoken intro:] Come on, Nils! Let us play what rarely gets played, go ahead, kid. Play it, baby, play it, play it, man! (chuckles) Awhooo!!! Ah, give me a little slapback now! Yeaaaaahhhh... Whooo!! I feel it coming on...

Well now you may think I'm foolish
For the foolish things I do
You may wonder how come I love you
When you get on my nerves like you do
Well baby you know you bug me
Yeah there ain't no secret 'bout that
Well come on over here and hug me
Honey I'll spill the facts
'Cause honey it ain't your money
'Cause sugar I got plenty of that
I love you for your pink Cadillac
Crushed velvet seats
Riding in the back
Oozing down the street
Waving to the girls
Feeling out of sight
Spending all my money
On a Friday night
Honey I just wonder what you do there in the back
Of your pink Cadillac
Pink Cadillac

You know way back in the Bible
Temptations always come along
There's always somebody tempting
Somebody into doing something they know is wrong
Well they tempt you, man, with silver
They tempt you, sir, with gold
And they tempt you with the pleasure
That the flesh does surely hold
They say Eve tempted Adam with an apple
But man I ain't going for that
I know it was her pink Cadillac
Crushed velvet seats
Riding in the back
Oozing down the street
Waving to the girls
Feeling out of sight
Spending all my money
On a Saturday night
Honey I just wonder what you do there in the back
Of your pink Cadillac
Pink, play it Big Man!

Well now some folks say it's too big
Uses too much gas
Steve, some folks say it's too old
That it goes too fast
But my love is bigger than a Honda
Bigger than a Subaru
Hey man there's only one thing
And one car that will do
Anyway, sugar
We don't have to drive it
We can park it out in back
And have a party in your pink Cadillac
Crushed velvet seats
Riding in the back
Oozing down the street
Waving to the girls
Feeling out of sight
Spending all my money on a Saturday night
Honey I just wonder what you do there in the back
Of your pink Cadillac
Pink Cadillac
Pink Cadillac
Pink Cadillac
Pink Cadillac
Pink!
C'mon!

Keep it going, C!
Clarence!
I don't want to stop this thing yet!
I want you to go to the five for me!
One, two, three, four...
Let's go to that chorus one more time!
Come on, Max!
One, two, one, two, three, I say

Pink Cadillac
Crushed velvet seats
Riding in the back
Oozing down the street
Waving to the girls
Feeling out of sight
Spending all my money on a Saturday night
Honey I just wonder what you do there in the back
Of your pink Cadillac
Pink Cadillac

Whoah!
