By Tom Petty

I want you to be my little lover
I want you to be my power glide
Oh, oh, oh, little girl, don't misunderstand me
Cuz there's a rumor going 'round
Somebody's gonna let me down
And I don't know what it's all about
Or if it's true
I'm counting on you

I want you to drive my El Dorado
I want you to fly my aeroplane
Oh, oh, oh, little girl, don't misunderstand me
Cuz there's a rumor going 'round
Somebody's gonna let me down
And I don't know what it's all about
Or if it's true
I'm counting on you
Counting on you

Well I saw your reflection in the river
And I swear I heard you in the wind
Oh, oh, oh, little girl, don't misunderstand me
Cuz there's a rumor going 'round
Somebody's gonna let me down
And I don't know what it's all about
Or if it's true
