Lyrics

There's was nothing on earth that a girl could do
The first minute I laid my eyes on you, on you
Turned sheets to the wind, I was all confused
Like burning my money, nothing left to lose
I knew, I was doomed

An attraction I just can't explain
But I knew I was never gonna be the same
I'd be lying if I said that I always chose what was good
So where we're gonna go in your Shelby '68?

I know you're gonna break my heart
When I get in your car
Oh, the trouble I'm in when we take that spin
Yeah, I'm in
I know there'll be hell to pay
Baby, I just can't wait
Oh, I'm gonna get high when I take that ride
In your Shelby '68

I was rolling with my very own Steve McQueen
When you were hitting that road
And I was living the dream
So it seemed
Like a diamond bullet in the dead of night
Yeah, I knew it was wrong but it felt so right to me
Can't you see?

An attraction I just can't explain
But I knew I was never gonna be the same
I'd be lying if I said that I always chose what was good
So where we're gonna go in that Shelby '68?

I know you're gonna break my heart
When I get in your car
Oh, the trouble I'm in when we take that spin
Yeah, I'm in
I know there'll be hell to pay
Baby, I just can't wait
Oh, I'm gonna get high when I take that ride
In your Shelby '68
I just can't wait

Burn rubber baby, get on with this show
I'll take a ride if it's your rodeo
The horses are wild and I'll cry, but I'm ready to go
Let's go
Longest of days and the starriest nights
Rocking and rolling and running those lights
No destination, we're racing baby, just drive
Drive
Take me away in your Shelby '68

I know you're gonna break my heart
When I get in your car
Oh, the trouble I'm in when we take that spin
Yeah, I'm in
I know there'll be hell to pay
Baby, I just can't wait
Oh, I'm gonna get high when I take that ride
In your Shelby '68

Ooh, I just can't wait
There'll be hell to pay
Take me away
Shelby '68
