  • I got me a deuce and a quarter, babe
    She will ride you right
    Pick you up about half past nine
    We can ride all night

    I came up from the country, baby
    City's where I stay
    Got me a deuce and a quarter, babe
    That's all I got to say

    She's a Detroit made
    Deuce and a quarter, babe
    She's a Detroit made
    Deuce and a quarter, babe

    Big-block she'll do all the work
    So we can ride in style
    Leather on those bucket seats
    Carpet double pile
    Chrome that takes the moonlight on
    Sea to shining sea
    You can hear those glass pipes rumble to the Statue of Liberty

    She's a Detroit made
    Deuce and a quarter, babe
    She's a Detroit made
    Deuce and a quarter, babe

    Now when I first got out of high school
    I drove an old farm truck
    All the girls they walked right by me
    Didn't even say good luck
    Now I ride my 225, they all want to be my friend
    I'll pick you up later tonight now baby
    If you can wait till then

    She's a Detroit made
    Deuce and a quarter, babe
    She's a Detroit made
    Deuce and a quarter, babe

    Detroit made
    Deuce and a quarter, babe
    Detroit made
    Deuce and a quarter, babe

    Just about every cat I know wants in my coupe de ville
    I pay half the price, I get twice as nice
    And they still have to pay that bill
    I can't say everything's okay riding in my car
    But I got me a deuce and a quarter baby
    She goes like a shooting star

    She's a Detroit made
    Deuce and a quarter, babe
    She's a Detroit made
    Deuce and a quarter, babe

    Detroit made
    Deuce and a quarter, babe
    Detroit made
    Deuce and a quarter, babe Writer/s: JOHN R HIATT
