guess shoulda known
By the way U parked ur car sideways
That it wouldn't last
C, U'r the kinda person
That believes N makin' out once
Love 'em and leave 'em fast
guess must B dumb
She had a pocket full of horses
Trojan & some of them used
But it was Saturday night
guess that makes it alright
& U say, "What have got 2 lose?"
&, honey, say...

Little red Corvette
Baby, U'r much 2 fast, oh
Little red Corvette
U need a love that's gonna last

Guess shoulda closed my eyes
When U drove me 2 the place
Where ur horses run free
Cuz felt a little ill
When saw all the pictures
Of the jockeys that were there b4 me
Believe it or not, started 2 worry
wondered if had enuff class
But it was Saturday night
guess that makes it alright
& U say, "Baby, have U got enuff gas?"
Oh yeah!

Little red Corvette
Baby, U'r 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, & give me the keys
'm gonna try 2 tame ur little red love machine

Little red Corvette
Baby, U'r 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 (Got 2 slow down, girl)
Little red Corvette
Cuz if U don't, U'r 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... got 2 slow down (Little red Corvette)
U'r movin' much 2 fast, 2 fast
U need 2 find a love that's gonna last... ooh!

Girl, U got an ass like 've never seen... ow!
& the ride...
say the ride is so smooth, U must B a limousine
Ow!
Baby, U'r much 2 fast
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'r 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 velvet sweat
Darling, there R some things that I want 2 do 2 U
So U'll never 4get!
Mayday
Mayday!
