  • Oh oh, oh oh, oh
    Oh oh, oh oh, oh
    Still runs good, built to last
    Moves like a hula girl on the dash
    She ain't made for practicality
    Yeah, I guess she's just like me

    It's Saturday night, about time to go
    Got my white leather jacket and a neon soul
    Once I turn on the radio I'm ready to roll, roll, ready to roll

    Feel like a hard-to-get starlet when I'm driving
    Turning every head, hell I ain't even trying
    Got them Ray-Ban shades pretty in pink
    Call me old school but hey

    I'm a nineties baby
    In my eighties Mercedes
    I'm a nineties baby
    In my eighties Mercedes

    Oh oh, oh oh, oh
    Oh oh, oh oh, oh
    Pop the top down like a summer dream
    She's my teenage time machine
    Just keeps getting sweeter with age
    She's classic through any decade

    The sun's in the sky, glitter on the seats
    You can try, but the Benz is hard to beat
    So, hey, if you want you can ride with me, ride, ride with me

    Feel like a hard-to-get starlet when I'm driving
    Turning every head, hell I ain't even trying
    Got them Ray-Ban shades pretty in pink
    Call me old school but hey

    I'm a nineties baby
    In my eighties Mercedes
    I'm a nineties baby
    In my eighties Mercedes

    Oh oh, oh oh, oh
    Oh oh, oh oh, oh
    It's Saturday night, about time to go
    Got my white leather jacket and a neon soul
    Once I turn on the radio I'm ready to roll, roll, ready to roll

    Feel like a hard-to-get starlet when I'm driving
    Turning every head hell I ain't even trying
    Got them Ray-Ban shades pretty in pink
    Call me old school but hey

    I'm a nineties baby
    In my eighties Mercedes
    I'm a nineties baby
    In my eighties Mercedes
