    Take me riding in the car, car;
    Take me riding in the car, car;
    Take you riding in the car, car;
    I'll take you riding in my car.

    Click clack, open up the door, girls;
    Click clack, open up the door, boys;
    Front door, back door, clickety clack,
    Take you riding in my car.

    Climb, climb, rattle on the front seat;
    Spree I spraddle on the backseat;
    Turn my key, step on my starter,
    Take you riding in my car.

    Engine it goes boom, boom;
    Engine it goes boom, boom;
    Front seat, backseat, boys and girls,
    Take you riding in my car.

    Trees and the houses walk along;
    Trees and the houses walk along;
    Truck and a car and a garbage can,
    Take you riding in my car.

    Ships and the little boars chug along;
    Ships and the little boats chug along;
    Boom buhbuh boom boom boom buh boom,
    Take you riding in my car.

    I'm a gonna send you home again;
    I'm a gonna send you home again;
    Boom, boom, buhbuh boom, rolling home,
    Take you riding in my car.

    I'm a gonna let You blow the horn;
    I'm a gonna let you blow the horn;
    A oorah, a oorah, a oogah, oogah,
    I'll take you riding in my car.

  • Sara from Silver Spring, MdDonovan covered this on his debut album What's Bin Did and What's Bin Hid aka Catch the Wind.
    Like Bob Dylan, Woody Guthrie was his major influence. He used to wear a Breton's fisherman's cap and even adapted Woody's "This machine kills facisits" on his first guitar but dropped the last part.
