I guess I should've known by the way U parked ur car sideways
That it wouldn't last
See, U're the kinda person that believes n makin' out once
Love 'em and leave 'em fast
I guess I must b dumb, she had a pocket full of horses
Trojan and some of them used
But it was Saturday night, I guess that makes it alright
And U say, "What have I got 2 lose?"

And, honey, I say, "Little Red Corvette
Baby, U're much 2 fast, oh
Little Red Corvette
U need a love that's gonna last"

I guess I should've closed my eyes when U drove me 2 the place
Where ur horses run free
Cuz I felt a little ill when I saw all the pictures of the jockeys
That were there b4 me
Believe it or not, I started 2 worry, I wondered if I had enough class
But it was Saturday night, I guess that makes it alright
And U say, "Baby, have U got enough gas?"

Oh yeah! Little Red Corvette
Baby, U're much 2 fast, yes U r
Little Red Corvette
U need 2 find a love that's gonna last, oh

Little Red Corvette
Little Red Corvette
Ooh, ooh

A body like urs oughta b n jail cuz it's on the verge of bein' obscene
Move over, baby, and give me the keys
I'm gonna try 2 tame ur little red love machine

Little Red Corvette
Baby, U're much 2 fast
Little Red Corvette, uh
U need 2 find a love that's gonna last

Little Red Corvette, ooh
Honey, U got 2 slow down
Little Red Corvette
Cuz if U don't, U're gonna run ur little red Corvette right n the ground
(Little Red Corvette)
Right down 2 the ground (Honey, U got 2 slow down)
U, U, U got 2 slow down (Little Red Corvette)
U're movin' much 2 fast, 2 fast
U need 2 find a love that's gonna last! Ooh!

Girl, U got an ass like I never seen, ow!
And the ride... I say the ride is so smooth, U must b a limousine
Ow!
Baby, U're much 2 fast, yeah
Little Red Corvette
U need a love, U need a love
That's, uh, that's gonna really last, ooh (Little Red Corvette)
Baby, U got 2 slow down
Little Red Corvette
Cuz if U don't, cuz if U don't
U're gonna run ur body right n2 the ground...
Little Red Corvette, oh
Ooh...
Yeah!

There r some things U do 2 me that leave me n a veil of sweat
Darling, there r some things that I want 2 do 2 U so U'll never 4get!
Mayday
Mayday!
