ROAD MOVIE

I’ve got that pistol I bought from Harper’s bazaar
And the guy down the road has got a really fast car
If we stole it at dusk we could steal half a day
Hit the border by three, we could be well away
We could be famous like Bonnie and Clyde, just living for the ride



Let’s do a road movie, we can borrow a car
And we’ll drive to the coast if we can make it that far
Why don’t we do a road movie with the law on our tail
And the sun in our eyes and the wind in our sail
I wanna do a road movie with you



I’ve got that whisky I saved, I’ve got plenty of Yen
And I think I’ll give up not smoking again
And that sweet little dress that you took from your ma
We can be a day clear before she knows that it’s gone
We can be bandits like Butch and the Kid, not caring what we did



Let’s do a road movie, we can borrow a car
And we’ll drive to the coast if we can make it that far
Why don’t we do a road movie with the law on our tail
And the sun in our eyes and the wind in our sail
I wanna do a road movie with you



And with fifty miles to go to the edge of Mexico
I can’t wait to see those smiling señoritas



I’ve got this burning desire to rob a liquor store
We can go back again and we can rob it some more
We can lock up a cop in the trunk of his car
We can burn ourselves out just like a shooting star
We can be lovers like Frankie and John, running until we’re gone



Let’s do a road movie, we can borrow a car
And we’ll drive to the coast if we can make it that far
Why don’t we do a road movie with the law on our tail
And the sun in our eyes and the wind in our sail
I wanna do a road movie with you
