As I passed by a real fine hotel
A chick walked out, she sure looked square
I gave her the eye and started to carry on
When a Cadillac cruised up and 'swish', she was gone

It should've been me with that real fine chick
It should've been me with that real fine chick
Hey hey hey hey, driving that Cadillac

A little later on, a theater I passed
I spotted another chick and did she have class
I was all set to write her name in my book
When her husband came up and gave me a real dirty look

It should've been me with that real fine chick
It should've been me with that real fine chick
It should've been me to have been her chaperon

When I got to the corner I saw a sharp cat
With a 300 dollar suit on and a 100 dollar hat
He was standin' on the sidewalk by a Dynaflow
When a voice within said,"C'mon daddy, let's go"

It should've been me with that real fine chick
It should've been me with that real fine chick
Hey hey hey hey, driving that Dynaflow

I ate a bowl of chili and I felt okay
At least until I passed this fine cafe
I saw a guy eatin' a great big steak
While a waitress stood by feedin' him ice cream and cake

It should've been me with that real fine chick
It should've been me with that real fine chick
You know, it should've been me eatin' ice cream and cake

It should've been me gettin' my natural kicks
It should've been me gettin' my natural kicks
Hey hey hey hey, lovin' those crazy chicks
