Pink Cadillac

  • Well now you may think I'm foolish
    For the foolish things I do
    You may wonder how come I love you
    When you get on my nerves like you do
    Well baby you know you bug me
    There ain't no secret 'bout that
    Well come on over here and hug me
    Baby I'll spill the facts
    Well honey it ain't your money
    'Cause baby I got plenty of that
    I love you for your pink Cadillac
    Crushed velvet seats
    Riding in the back
    Cruising down the street
    Waving to the girls
    Feeling out of sight
    Spending all my money
    On a Saturday night
    Honey I just wonder what you do there in back
    Of your pink Cadillac
    Pink Cadillac

    Well now way back in the Bible
    Temptations always come along
    There's always somebody tempting
    Somebody into doing something they know is wrong
    Well they tempt you, man, with silver
    And they tempt you, sir, with gold
    And they tempt you with the pleasures
    That the flesh does surely hold
    They say Eve tempted Adam with an apple
    But man I ain't going for that
    I know it was her pink Cadillac
    Crushed velvet seats
    Riding in the back
    Oozing down the street
    Waving to the girls
    Feeling out of sight
    Spending all my money
    On a Saturday night
    Honey I just wonder what it feels like in the back
    Of your pink Cadillac
    Pink Cadillac

    Now some folks say it's too big
    And uses too much gas
    Some folks say it's too old
    And that it goes too fast
    But my love is bigger than a Honda
    Yeah, it's bigger than a Subaru
    Hey man there's only one thing
    And one car that will do
    Anyway we don't have to drive it
    Honey we can park it out in the back
    And have a party in your pink Cadillac
    Crushed velvet seats
    Riding in the back
    Cruising down the street
    Waving to the girls
    Feeling out of sight
    Spending all my money
    On a Saturday night
    Honey I just wonder what you do there in back
    Of your pink Cadillac
    Pink Cadillac
    Pink Cadillac
    Pink Cadillac
    Pink Cadillac
    Pink Cadillac
    Pink Cadillac
    Pink Cadillac

  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyFor what its worth; on August 22nd 1902, the Henry Ford Company founded the Cadillac Motor Company, the new company was named after Antoine Laumet de La Mothe, sieur de Cadillac {founder of Detroit, Michigan}. General Motors purchased the company in 1909…
    The Cadillac emblem is based on de Cadillac's coat of arms...
    Also on this date in 1902 Theodore Roosevelt becomes the first President of the United States to ride in an automobile {don't think it was a Caddy, unless they were able to build the first one in one day}.
  • Ken from Pittsburgh, PaSomeone as Ed The Sped how many songs HE'S written.
  • Rick from Boston, MaThis song is definitely about sex, but more specifically about women's genitalia. The use of cars as a metaphor is quite clever. Perverted mind? Maybe, but that applies to Springsteen too!
  • Dwight from Scranton, PaThis song is awesome, but I'm confused. Is he singing about a "naughty" girl when he says he wonders what she does in the back of her pink Cadillac?
  • Sarah from Kennewick, WaEd from INCOGNITO, CA is a retard. Wait, that is an insult to retards. That is all.
  • N.i. from Baltimore, MdI can't believe no one has mentioned that this song has the same melody as Chuck Berry's "Rock and Roll Music."
  • Scott from West Palm Beach, FlThe term Rock-n-Roll is synonomis with sex.

    "Rock-and-Roll (räk'n roll') n. first so used (1951) by Alan Freed, Cleveland disc jockey, taken from the song "My Baby Rocks Me with a Steady Roll". The use of rock, roll, rock and roll, etc., with reference to sexual intercourse, is traditional in blues, a form of popular music that evolved in the 1950's from rhythm and blues, characterized by the use of electric guitars, a strong rhythm with an accent on the offbeat, and youth-oriented lyrics." - DK Peneny, Published 3/98 http://www.history-of-rock.com

    So if you listen to RnR, I suppose you should want and desire SEX! ;) In almost every RnR song ever written one can find some sort of sexual inuendo, comment or just plain relate sex to it's wording. Hell, just enjoy the music people! And yes, I too love the Pink Cadillac! ;)
  • Kelly from Kc, Moor....maybe we just have perverted minds.....
  • Kelly from Kc, MoKyle, I have always thought the same thing about this song. Sex, totally. Glad to hear someone else picked up on that...finally!
  • Scott from West Palm Beach, FlTo Ed: Man, what side of the bed did you get up from? ;) The Boss is undeniably one of the greatest rock-n-roll singer/songwriters of our time ... what, he can't simply have a "fun" song too? Diversity is what sets a singer/songwriting genius apart from the wannabes. The song IS catchy, and to put something together in less time it takes for me to write this - AND produce a hit maker from it ... what more need I say about the man's ability! BRUUUUUUUUUUCE!!
  • Ed from Incognito, IlGeez, this is the most boring song! If it took over 15 minutes to write/record it, they spent 10 minutes too long...and this guy's heralded as a songwriting genuis?!?!?!? Wake up!
  • Darrell from Eugene, United StatesMy 1978 Dodge Magnum XE is definitely bigger than a Honda (other than the Ridgeline "truck") and much bigger than any Subaru, it goes very fast, it uses lots of gas, it has crushed velvet seats, but it is brown with a tan top and closer to a T-Bird than a Cadillac.
  • Ameer from La, CaI love the guitar and bass riffs in this song along with some amazing drum playing. It isn't to hard to figure out what they're singing about and I love the lyrics "They say Eve tempted Adam with an apple
    But man, I ain't goin' for that
    I'm goin' for some

    Pink Cadillac...."
  • Jordan from Philly, PaThe line "My love is bigger than a Honda, yeah it's bigger than a Subaru" in a song about a Cadillac has to be a reference to Buddy Holly's "Fade Away" (recorded by the Stones as "Not Fade Away") which has a line that goes: "And my love is bigger than a Cadillac/I'll try to show it if you drive me back."
