Lyrics to Electric Car

By They Might Be Giants

Electric car
On roads so dark To change the end Rewrite the start Electric car
So good, so far

Electric car
On verdant green Invent a turn Invent a dream Electric car
The new machine

Let’s take a ride in an electric car To the West Side in an electric car How can you deny an electric car? Won’t you take a ride with me? Come on and take a ride with me

Electric car Beside the tree Roll past the dock Roll past the sea

Electric car
Roll silently Electric car On roads so dark
To change the end Rewrite the start Electric car
So good, so far

Let’s take a ride in an electric car To the West Side in an electric car How can you deny an electric car? Won’t you take a ride with me? Come on and take a ride with me

Appendix 1

Not diesel, steam, or gasoline
Let’s take a ride in an electric car Happiness resides in an electric car You can even drive an electric car

Won’t you take a ride with me? Come on and take a ride with me

Let’s take a ride in an electric car To the West Side in an electric car How can you deny an electric car? Won’t you take a ride with me? Come on and take a ride with me
