CRUISE IN IT
(Jerry Allison)
THE CRICKETS (ZYGOTE MUSIC, 1978)

I paid a hundred dollars down on a '50 model Studebaker
It ain't brand new, but it was owned by an undertaker
Never been driven over fifty-five
Gotcha V8 engine, gotcha overdrive

And I cruise in it, take off my shoes in it
Don't ever lose in it, I just cruise in it

I had the blackwall tyres
I took some paint and put the white ones on
Took off the chrome and got it lookin' just the way I want it
Primered all the spots and then I customised the grille
Don't quite have it finished and I guess I never will

But I can cruise in it, I sing the blues in it
I make the news in it, well I cruise in it

Well, I cruise by the Hi-D-Ho and cruise through MacKenzie Park
Gonna cruise by my baby's house, and pick her up right after dark

Well, I took her to the dragstrip, to see if I could qualify
I couldn't 'cause the Fords and Chevys always pass me by
You don't have to go fast to be number one
I go real slow, but still we have a lot of fun

When I cruise in it, kick off my shoes in it
I payed some dues in it, yeah I can cruise in it

I paid a hundred dollars down on a '50 model Studebaker
It ain't brand new, but it was owned by an undertaker
Never been driven over fifty-five
Gotcha V8 engine, gotcha overdrive

Yeah, I can cruise in it, I get amused in it
I been accused in it, I get enthused in it
When Peggy Sue's in it, light up my fuse in it
Express your views in it, be Howard Hughes in it
Yeah, I can cruise in it, ain't gonna lose in it
