Lyrics

"4 3 2 1"
Cruisin' down the freeway,
in a pink Cadillac.
Music turned up loud,
in a pink Cadillac.
Oh, how I wish,
I was doin' just that!

"4 3 2 1"
Speedin' round the race track,
on a big black Harley.
Revvin' up the engine,
on a big black Harley.
Oh, how I wish, I was doin' just that!

"4 3 2 1"
Jumpin' over surfin' waves,
on a real fast jet ski.
Makin' lots of noise,
on a real fast jet ski.
Oh, how I wish, I was doin' just that!

All these things are cool but
while I am at school.
I'll just have to daydreamabout
doin' just that!

All these things are cool but
while I am at school.
I'll just have to daydream about
doin' just that!
