[Verse 1] I bought a brand-new air-mobile It was custom-made, it was a Flight De Ville With a powerful motor and some hideaway wings Push in on the button and you can hear her sing [Chorus] Now you can't catch me, baby you can't catch me Because if you get too close, you know I'm gone like a cool breeze [Verse 2] New Jersey Turnpike in the wee wee hours I was rolling slowly because of drizzling showers Here come a flat-top, he was moving up with me Then come waving by me in a little old souped-up jitney I put my foot on my tank and I began to roll Moaning siren, it was the state patrol So I let out my wings and then I blew my horn Bye bye New Jersey, I've become airborne [Chorus] [Verse 3] Flying with my baby last Saturday night Not a gray cloud floating in sight Big full moon shining up above Cuddle up honey, be my love Sweetest little thing I've ever seen I'm going to name you Maybellene Flying on the beam, set on flight control Radio tuned to rock and roll Two, three hours passed us by Altitude dropped to 5:05 Fuel consumption way too fast Let's get on home before we run out of gas [Chorus]
