Nadine Is It You
Chuck Berry Lyrics


As I got on a city bus and found a vacant seat,
I thought I spied my future bride a-walking up the street,
I shouted to the driver "Hey conductor, you must"
"Slow down, I think I see her, please let me off this bus."

Nadine, honey is that you?
Oh, Nadine. Honey, is that you?
Seems like every time I catch you Darling you got something else to do.

I saw her on the corner when she turned and doubled back
And started walkin' toward a coffee colored Cadillac
I was pushin' through the crowd tryin' to get to where she's at
And I was campaign shouting like a southern diplomat

Nadine, honey is that you?
Oh, Nadine.
Honey, is that you?
Seems like every time I catch you Darling you're up to somethin' new.

Downtown searching for her, looking all around.
Saw her gettin' in a yellow cab a-heading uptown.
I caught a loaded taxi, paid up everybody's tab.
Slipped a twenty dollar bill, an' told him "Catch that yellow cab."

Nadine, honey is that you?
Oh, Nadine.
Honey, is that you?
Seems like every time I catch you Darling you're up to somethin' new.

She moves around like a wayward summer breeze,
Go, driver, go. Go on, catch her for me, please.
Moving through the traffic like a mounted cavalier.
Leaning out the taxi window tryin' to make her hear.

[Chorus]

Then if you're 65, how is it that you remained so stupid?
As you get older, you're supposed to gain knowledge and wisdom. You've gained neither.
I've studied this topic longer than you've been alive.
Elvis's soul depth and diversity destroys chuck.
And I love chuck.
But elvis is on a whole different level of diversity and soul.
But, at the end of the day?
Who really gives a shit about a debate on the internet?

As I got on a city bus and found a vacant seat
I thought I saw my future bride walking up the street
I shouted to the driver, "Hey conductor, you must slow down
I think I see her, please let me off the bus"
Nadine, honey is that you?
Oh, Nadine, honey is that you?
Seems like every time I see you
Darling, you got something else to do
I saw her from the corner when she turned and doubled back
And started walkin' toward a coffee colored Cadillac
I was pushin' through the crowd tryna get to where she's at
And I was campaign shouting like a southern diplomat
Nadine, honey is that you?
Oh, Nadine, honey where are you?
Seems like every time I catch you
But you're up to something new
Downtown searching for her, looking all around
Saw her getting in a yellow cab heading uptown
I caught a loaded taxi, paid up everybody's tab
Flip the twenty dollar bill and told him catch that yellow cab
Nadine, honey is that you?
Oh, Nadine, honey is that you?
Seems like every time I catch you
But you're up to something new
She moved around like a wayward summer breeze
Go, driver, go, go on, catch her for me please
Moving through the traffic like a mounted cavalier
Leaning out the taxi window trying to make her hear
Nadine, honey is that you?
Oh, Nadine, honey is that you?
Seems like every time I see you
Darling, you're up to something new

You are 100% correct.
These idiots who call chuck the king.
Or big mama the king.
Or little richard the king.
Or any of them.
Elvis Presley was the most diverse and soulful artist in history.
His critically acclaimed studio recordings are second to none.
The sheer diversity and soul of elvis was on an entirely different level.
Anyone who doesn't understand that?
Low low low IQ

The lyrical content of this song has to be some of the best ever written! "Campaign shout'n like Southern Diplomat..., She moves around like a wayward summer breeze GO driver Go Go on...paid up everybody's tab,  flip a twenty dollar bill told him catch that Yellow Cab, "Movin' thru the traffic like a mounted Cavelier, leanin' out the taxi window tryin' to make her hear", "conductor you must slow down I think I see her please let me off this bus.., saw her walkin' toward.a coffee color Cadillac"  Expressing  his torment with descriptive genius and that Chuck Berry style! Superb....

@David Hamilton "Nadine" > "Subterranean Homesick Blues" - continuous staccato rapid fire lyrics punctuated by one syllable words

So true about the lyrics. Always felt that way the moment I heard the song, along with the funky ass music, rhythm.
