Lady Cab Driver

This song is by Prince and appears on the album 1999 (1982).

Taxi, taxi

Lady cab driver
Can you take me for a ride?
Don't know where I'm going, 'cause I don't where I've been
Just put your foot on the gas, let's drive

Lady, don't ask questions
I promise I'll tell you no lies
Trouble winds are blowing, I'm growing cold
Get me outta here, feel I'm gonna die

Lady cab driver
Roll up your window fast
Lately, trouble winds are blowin' hard
And I don't know if I can last

Lady, I'm so lonely
I know that's not the way to be
Don't want isolation, but the air it makes me cold
Drive it baby, drive it, drive this demon out of me

Take me to your mansion
Honey, let's go everywhere
Help me girl I'm drowning, mass confusion in my head
Will you accept my tears to pay the fare

Lady cab driver
Roll up your window fast
Lately, trouble winds are blowin' hard
And I don't know if I can last, oh

Lady cab driver
Can you take me for a ride?

Lady cab driver
Roll up your window fast
Lately, trouble winds are blowin' hard
And I don't know if I can last

This is for the cab you have to drive for no money at all
This is for why I wasn't born like my brother, handsome and tall
This is for politicians, who are bored and believe in war
And this, mmm yeah, that's for me, that's who that one's for

This is for discrimination and egotists who think supreme
This is for whoever taught you how to kiss in designer jeans
Oh, that one's for, that one's for, where you have to live
This one's for the rich, not all of 'em, just the greedy
The ones who don't know how to give

This one's for Yosemite Sam and the tourists at Disneyland
THIS one, ooh, yeah, that's the one
That's for, that's for, the creator of man
This is for the sun, moon, stars, tourists at Disneyland

This one's for the ocean, the sea, the shore
This one's for... and that's for you, that's who that one's for
This is for the women, so beautifully complex
This is for the love without sex

This is for the wind, that blows no matter how fast or slow
Not knowing where I'm going is galaxies better
Than not having a place to go, now I know, now I know

Lady cab driver

Lady cab driver
Lady cab driver
Lady cab driver
Lady cab driver
Lady cab driver
Lady cab driver

Hey man, that's my taxi
