LYRICS

CADILLAC WOMAN

Words and music by Idlewilde

SHE WALKED IN THE ROOM

THE BOYS TURNED THEIR HEADS

SHE HAD THAT LOOK 

KNOCK YOU DEAD

SHE WAS A LONG COOL BLONDE

AND HER EYES WERE BABY BLUE

SHE SAT DOWN NEXT TO ME

I SAID, "HOW DO YOU DO?"

WELL I TRIED TO LOOK COOL 

JUST THINKING OF SOMETHING TO SAY

 

SHE'S A CADILLAC WOMAN

BUT I'M DRIVING A CHEVROLET

 

SHE SAID, "HEY BAR TENDER

POOR ME A COLD DRAFT BEER"

I TURNED TO HER I SAID, "MAMA

WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE?"
SAID, "IT'S A LONG SAD STORY

AND YOU REALLY DON'T WANNA KNOW

BUT I'M RUNNING FROM SOMETHING THAT HAPPENED

A LONG TIME AGO"

SHE DRAINED HER GLASS 

COCKED HER EYEBROW

AND LOOK MY WAY

 

SAID, "I'M A CADILLAC WOMAN

BUT I'LL DRIVE YOUR CHEVROLET"

 

SHE HAD A LONG BLACK ELDORADO

'BOUT A '59

RED LEATHER WAS ROLLED AND PLEATED

AND IT LOOKED REAL FINE

SHE JUMPED IN SLAMMED THE DOOR

DROPPED THE TOP SAID,

"GET IN JACK"

THREW THAT SUCKER IN GEAR

LEANED OVER SAID,

"DON'T LOOK BACK"

 

THE SUN CREPT THROUGH THE WINDOW 

THE SHADE WAS CLOSED

AND OFF IN THE DISTANCE I HEARD

A ROOSTER CROW

SHE WAS GONE

BUT IT WASN'T NO SURPRISE

SHE HAD THAT FAR AWAY LOOK

IN HER EYES

SHE GAVE ME ONE WILD NIGHT 

BUT I KNEW SHE WASN'T GONNA STAY

 

SHE'S A CADILLAC WOMAN

BUT I'M DRIVING A CHEVROLET

 

SHE'S A CADILLAC WOMAN

BUT I'M DRIVING A CHEVROLET

 

SHE'S A CADILLAC WOMAN

BUT I'M DRIVING A CHEVROLET
