Taxi! Taxi!

Lady cab driver, can U take me 4 a ride?
Don't know where 'm goin'
Cuz don't know where 've been
So put ur foot on the gas, let's drive
Lady, don't ask questions
promise 'll tell U no lies
Trouble winds R blowin', 'm growin' cold
Get me outta here
feel 'm gonna die

Lady cab driver, roll up ur window fast
Lately trouble winds R blowin' hard
& don't know if can last

Lady, 'm so lonely
know that's not the way 2 B
Don't want isolation
But the air, it makes me cold
Drive it, baby, drive it
Drive this demon out of me
Take me 2 ur mansion
Honey, let's go everywhere
Help me, girl, 'm drownin'
Mass confusion N my head
Will U accept my tears 2 pay the fare?

Lady cab driver, roll up ur window fast
Lately trouble winds R blowin' hard
& don't know if can last
Oh

Lady cab driver (Hey, that's my taxi)
Can U take me 4 a ride?

Lady cab driver, roll up ur window fast
Lately trouble winds R blowin' hard
& don't know if can last

This is 4 the cab U have 2 drive 4 no money at all
This is 4 Y wasn't born like my brother, handsome & tall
This is 4 politicians who R bored & believe N war
& this... mmm yeah, that's 4 me, that's who that 1's 4
This is 4 discrimination & egotists who think supreme
& this is 4 whoever taught U how 2 kiss N designer jeans
Uh! That 1's 4, that 1's 4 where U have 2 live
This 1's 4 the rich - not all of 'em, just the greedy
The ones that don't know how 2 give
This 1's 4 Yosemite Sam & the tourists at Disneyland
This 1... ooh yeah, that's the 1
That's 4, that's 4 the Creator of man
This is 4 the sun, moon, stars, tourists at Disneyland
This is 4 the ocean, the sea, the shore
This is 4... & that's 4 U, that's who that 1's 4
This is 4 the women so beautifully complex
This 1's 4 love without sex
This is 4 the wind that blows, no matter how fast or slow
Not knowing where 'm going
Is galaxies better than not having a place 2 go
Now know, now know

Lady cab driver {repeat}
Hey, that's my taxi
