I've been looking for a driver who's qualified
So if you think that you're the one
Step into my ride
I'm a fine-tuned supersonic
Speed machine
With a sunroof top and a gangster lean

~Bridge~
So if you feel me let me know
Know, know
Come on now what you waiting for
For, for

My engine's ready to explode
Explode, explode
So start me up and watch me go
Go, go, go

~Chorus~
Got you where you wanna go
If you know what I mean
Got a ride that's smoother than a limousine
Can you handle the curves?
Can you run all the lights?
If you can baby boy
Then we can go all night

'Cause I'm 0 to 60 in three point five
Baby you got the keys

Now shut up and drive
(Drive, drive, drive)

Shut up and drive
(Drive, drive, drive)

I got class like a' 57 Cadillac
Got overdrive and a whole lot of
Boom in the back
You look like you can handle what's
Under my hood
You keep saying that you will boy
I wish you would

~Bridge~
So if you feel me let me know
Know, know
Come on now what you waiting for
For, for

My engine's ready to explode
Explode, explode
So start me up and watch me go
Go, go, go

~Chorus~
Got you where you wanna go
If you know what I mean
Got a ride that's smoother than a limousine
Can you handle the curves?
Can you run all the lights?
If you can baby boy
Then we can go all night

'Cause I'm 0 to 60 in three point five
Baby you got the keys

Now shut up and drive
(Drive, drive, drive)

Shut up and drive
(Drive, drive, drive)

'Cause you play that game
Got what I got
Don't Stop It's a sure shot
Ain't no Ferrari huh boy I'm sorry

I ain't even worried
So step inside and ride
(Ride, ride, ride...)

~Bridge~
So if you feel me let me know
Know, know
Come on now what you waiting for
For, for

My engine's ready to explode
Explode, explode
So start me up and watch me go
Go, go, go

~Chorus~
Got you where you wanna go
If you know what I mean
Got a ride that's smoother than a limousine
Can you handle the curves?
Can you run all the lights?
If you can baby boy
Then we can go all night

'Cause I'm 0 to 60 in three point five
Baby you got the keys

Now shut up and drive
(Drive, drive, drive)

Shut up and drive
(Drive, drive, drive)

Now shut up and drive
(Drive, drive, drive)

Shut up and drive
(Drive, drive, drive)
