You women heard of jalopies
You heard the noise they make
But let me introduce you to my Rocket '88

It's long and straight, and it just won't wait
Everybody loves my Rocket '88
Baby, we're ridin' in style movin' all along

Blow your horn Raymond

V-8 motor, this modern design
Convertible top and the gals don't mind
Sportin' with me, ridin' over town for joy

Step in my Rocket now and don't be late
We're pullin' out about a quarter past eight
Goin' around the corner and get us a fifth
Everybody here's gonna take a little nip
Movin' on out, groovin' and cruisin' along
