Ride Of The Century (Unearthed Version)


Just one more minute then it's time to leave
From here on out it's just you and me
You and me on the ride of the century (yeah)

She's all tuned up and her tank is topped
Soft cushion seats, no need to stop
You and me on the ride of the century
We'll slide out of town and cross the bridge
And set our sides on that distant ridge
You and me on the ride of the century
You and me on the ride of the century (he he)

   And the radio plays on 
   (turn in up louder now)
   Your favorite sixties folk-rock hippie song 
   (crank it up louder now)
   Your arms outstretched as you stomp that trippy beat
   (sing it all together now)
   Against the leather dashboard with your sweet bare feet
   Yeah, sweet bare feet, sweet bare feet...

The stars blur past in this highway night
A top down wind and a full moon light
You and me on the ride of the century
Just close your eyes hear the engine roar
Hold on now baby 'cause I'm about to score
You and me on the ride of the century
You and me on the ride of the century (he he)

   It takes a night like this to do the trick
   (turn it up louder now)
   I'll take the wheel honey, you work the stick
   (crank it up louder now)
   Prarie dogs howling on an empty road
   (sing is all together now)
   Buckle up tight I'm 'bout to shoot my load
   Yeah, shoot my load, shoot my load...

Slippin' and slidin' on the century
Slippin' and slidin' on this ride of the century
Slippin' and slidin' on this ride of the century
You and me baby on the ride...of the century
