PINK CADILLAC

Jerry Lee Lewis' album version


Bruce Springsteen:Come on now, Killer!
Jerry Lee Lewis: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
Ain't no secret 'bout that
Well come on over here and hug me, baby
I'll show you where it's at
I ain't into your money
Baby I got plenty of that
I love you for your pink Cadillac
Crushed velvet seats
Hidin' in the back
Oozing down the street
Waving to the girls
Feeling out of sight
Go spending all my money
On a Saturday night
Springsteen and Lewis:Honey I just wonder what you do there in the back
Of your pink Cadillac, pink Cadillac
Jerry Lee Lewis:Whoah!

Jerry Lee Lewis:Way back in the Bible
Temptation always come along
Springsteen and Lewis:Always somebody tempting somebody
Jerry Lee Lewis:Into doing something they know is wrong
Well they tempt men with silver
And they tempt you, sir, with gold, whoah!
Springsteen and Lewis:And they tempt you with the pleasure
Jerry Lee Lewis:That flesh does surely hold
They say
Springsteen and Lewis:Eve tempted Adam with an apple
But man, I ain't going for that
Jerry Lee Lewis:I know it was her
Springsteen and Lewis:Pink Cadillac
Crushed velvet seats
Riding in the back
Oozing down the street
Waving to the girls
Feeling out of sight
Jerry Lee Lewis:Spending all my money
On a Saturday night
Springsteen and Lewis:Honey I just wonder what it feels like in the back
Of your pink Cadillac, pink Cadillac

Jerry Lee Lewis:Whoah!
Bruce Springsteen:Oh, that's right!
Jerry Lee Lewis:Whoah! Whoah!
Bruce Springsteen:Now come on!

Jerry Lee Lewis:Yeah some folks say it's a little too big
And
Bruce Springsteen:Whoah!
Jerry Lee Lewis:Uses too much gas
Springsteen and Lewis:Some folks say it's too old
And goes just a little too fast
Jerry Lee Lewis:But my love is bigger than a Honda
Bruce Springsteen:That's right
It's bigger than a Subaru
And man there's only one thing
Springsteen and Lewis:And there's one car that will do
Jerry Lee Lewis:Anyway we don't
Springsteen and Lewis: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
Jerry Lee Lewis:Spending all my money on a Saturday night
Springsteen and Lewis:Honey I just wonder what you do there in the back
Of your pink Cadillac; pink Cadillac
Bruce Springsteen:Whoah!

Jerry Lee Lewis:Rrrr!
Yeah baby!
Put the seat down a little bit
I'll show you a trick
The killer will show you a trick, baby
Bruce Springsteen:Whoah, come on, Killer

Info

Jerry Lee Lewis recorded PINK CADILLAC as a duet with Bruce Springsteen. He released it on his Last Man Standing album on 26 Sep 2006 (U.S. release date). Springsteen shares harmony vocals on the track.

Recording

Around November 2003, Springsteen overdubbed backing vocals for the Jerry Lee Lewis cover of Springsteen's own PINK CADILLAC. The basic track had been recorded by Lewis in another studio some months earlier, and Bruce merely added his parts at Thrill Hill Recording (Springsteen's home studio) in Rumson, NJ. His contribution was one of the first completed for a work-in-progress album that turned out to be the much-delayed album Last Man Standing, released in September 2006.

Official Release

In the works for years, Jerry Lee Lewis' first new studio album in more than a decade is finally seeing the light of day, released on 26 Sep 2006 on the Artists First Records label. Last Man Standing consists of duets between Lewis and some of the biggest names in music, past and present. The title derives from the generation of 1950's Sun Studios recording artists such as Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison, Charlie Rich, Carl Perkins, and Elvis Presley, all of whom had died, leaving Lewis the "last man standing".

Receiving positive reviews, Last Man Standing charted in four different Billboard charts, including a 9-week stay on the Billboard 200 where it peaked at number 26.
