It takes a fast car, lady, to lead a double life
It takes a slow star, lady, if you wanna do it twice
You take your backseat rumble, take your front seat wife
Takes a fast car, lady, to lead a double life

It takes a light foot, lady, to lead a double life
It takes a good book, maybe, if you wanna do it nice
When you idle at the stop light, better get the signal right
Light foot, lady, you need a double life

Well, lift me from the wonder maze
Alienation is the craze
And it's all gonna happen to you
You think it's a phase
And it's all gonna happen to you
When you drive in the haze

It takes a freeway, lady, to lead a double life
It takes leeway, lady, if you wanna it twice
Neon blinking on the street, everyone is bittersweet
Freeway, lady, to lead a double life

Well, lift me from the wonder maze
Alienation is the craze
And it's all gonna happen to you
You think it's a phase
And it's all gonna happen to you
When you drive in the haze
It's all
Gonna happen to you
It's all gonna happen to you
That's right I said
Well, it's all gonna happen to you
That's right, well
Gonna say it to you
It's all gonna happen to you
Well that's right, oh
Well, it's all gonna happen to you, well
I said, it's all gonna happen to you, ooh-ooh, yeah
Gonna tell you again, I said
It's all gonna happen to you, well
