If I was stagger wing plane
A stagger wing painted red
I'd fly over to your house, baby
Buzz you in your bed

If I was a taper wing
A taper wing painted blue
I'd be barrel-rolling over you

You're gonna need a rider anyhow
Let me be your rider now

If I was a Maserati
A red 300s
I'd ride around to your house, baby
Give you a driving test

If I was a Mustang racer
White with a stripe of blue
You could ride me, baby
Whenever you wanted to

You're gonna need a rider anyhow
Let me be your rider now

If I was a fender guitar
A fender painted red
You could play me, darlin'
Until your fingers bled

If I was one of them Gibsons
Like a '58 or '9
You could plug me in
And play me anytime

You're gonna need a rider anyhow
Let me be your rider now

If I was a motorcycle
A Vincent red rapide
I'd ride around to your house
Baby, get you up to speed

If I was short track racer
I'd be an Indian
You could ride me around
And ride me round again

You're gonna need a rider anyhow
Let me be your rider now

You're gonna need a rider anyhow
Let me be your rider now
