Eight-track machine playing ‘Half Moon Bay’
Drivin’ in my Volks down on Hamstead Way
Her mother got bust on a 88
And her brother got stuck on my number plate

Hey mister bartender won’t you gimme some wine
I gotta get outta’ town, meet my baby on time
He put five gallons in my petrol tank
You know we just about made it but her breath sure stank, yeah

[Chorus:]
Drivin’ sister rock’n’roll
She’s got feel on the wheel
Drivin’ sister rock’n’roll
She don’t make with no brakes

Drivin’ sister rock’n’roll
She’s an automobeat on the street
Drivin’ sister rock’n’roll
She’s much too much on the clutch

[Chorus]

I said drive, drive, drive, drive
And drive little sister drive
I said drive, drive, drive, drive
And drive little sister, drive on
