I was standing on the corner, waiting for the light
When a silver Eldorodo pulled up on the right
I was looking for adventure, I was looking for a ride
And both of my prayers were answered when she motioned me inside

She said, "Where you going, cowboy?" I said, "Anywhere but here"
She looked me squarely in the eye and said, "Well have no fear
I'll get you there in half the time, I love to fast", she winked at me
The light turned green and the world went flying past

She said, "Boy, I'm gonna give you the ride of your life
We're only gonna do it once but we're gonna do it right
If you're into taking chances, you better hold on tight
'Cause I'm gonna give you the ride of your like"

We were screaming through the traffic, flying through the night
I was thinking it was cool, passing everything in sight
She took a right on Sunset, then a left on Canyon Drive
And I began to wonder, if I'd make it back alive

Like a demon had possessed her, she kept picking up the pace
My heart was beating faster and the blood drained from my face
A death grip on the armrest, my knuckles turning white
Why is it when you need a cop, there's never one in sight?

She said, "Boy, I'm gonna give you the ride of your life
We're only gonna do it once but we're gonna do it right
If you're into taking chances, you better hold on tight
'Cause I'm gonna give you the ride of your like"

Now, my thirst for adventure had long since disappeared
And any thoughts of passion were now overcome by fear
I was praying through anther curve when suddenly ahead
I saw an intersection and the light was turning red

I was planning my escape as she was gearing down
When she came to a screeching halt, I jumped out and kissed the ground
The light turned green, I heard her laugh as she drove out of sight
I realized just what she meant and was she ever right

She said, "Boy, I'm gonna give you the ride of your life
We're only gonna do it once but we're gonna do it right
If you're into taking chances, you better hold on tight
'Cause I'm gonna give you the ride of your like"
