Album: Joyride (1991)
Charted: 4 1
  • I hit the road out of nowhere
    I had to jump in my car
    And be a rider in a love game
    Following the stars
    Don't need no book of wisdom
    I get no money talk at all

    She has a train going downtown
    She's got a club on the moon
    And she's telling all her secrets
    In a wonderful balloon

    She's the heart of the funfair
    She's got me whistling her private tune

    And it all begins where it ends
    And she's all mine, my magic friend

    She says: Hello, you fool, I love you
    Come on join the joyride
    Join the joyride

    She's a flower, I can paint her
    She's a child of the sun
    We're a part of this together
    Could never turn around and run
    Don't need no fortune teller
    To know where my lucky love belongs
    Oh no

    Cause it all begins again when it ends
    And we're all magic friends

    She says: Hello, you fool, I love you
    Come on join the joyride
    Join the joyride

    Be a joyrider
    I take you on a sky ride
    A feeling like you're spellbound
    The sunshine is a lady
    Who ROX you like a baby

    She says: Hello, you fool, I love you
    Come on join the joyride
    Join the joyride Writer/s: Per H�kan Gessle

  • Dennis from Anchorage, AkThis song is one of my favorite musical guilty pleasures.
  • Peter C. "clemo" from Prague, Czech RepublicThe title comes (as I read in the booklet from Roxette greatest hits CD, Per Gessle himself said) from an interview with Paul McCartney, who said "writing songs with John (Lennon) was a complete Joyride" (or something like that)
