I bought a brand new airmobile
'Twas a custom made, 'twas a flightning deal 
With a powerful motor and a hide away wing
Push in on the button, you will hear her sing 

Now you can't catch me
Baby, you can't catch me 
Cause if you get too close 
You know I'm going' like cool breeze 

Hey! Hey! 
Well, you walk! 
You walk! 

New Jersey turnpike in the wee wee hours
I was rolling slowly cause of drizzling showers 
Here come a flat-top, he was moving up with me
Then come waving goodbye in a little old souped up jitney 
I put my foot in the tank, I began to roll
Moaning siren, 'twas the state patrol 
I let out my wings, then I blew my horn
Bye-bye, New Jersey, I become airborne 

Now you can't catch me
Baby, you can't catch me 
Cause if you get too close
You know I'm going' like cool breeze 

Hey! 
Well, you walk! 
Yeah, walk! 

I bought a brand new airmobile
'twas a custom made, 'twas a flightning deal 
With a powerful motor and a hide away wing
Push in on the button, you will hear her sing 

Now you can't catch me
Baby, you can't catch me 
'cause if you get too close
You know I'm going' like cool breeze 

Hey! Hey! 
Well, you walk! 
You walk! 

Flying with my baby last Saturday night
Wasn't a gray cloud floating in sight 
Big, full moon, shining up above
Cuddle up, honey, be my love 

Sweetest little thing that I 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 into five-o-five 
Fuel consumption, way too fast
Let's get on home before we run out of gas 

Now you can't catch me,
Baby, you can't catch me 
Cause if you get too close 
You know I'm going' like cool breeze 

Get it on! 
Yeah, walk! 
Get it on, get it on, get it on, do it! 
Get it on, get it on! 
You know you can't catch me!
