You Can't Catch Me
Chuck Berry Lyrics

I bought a brand-new air-mobile
It custom-made, 'twas a Flight De Ville
With a pow'ful motor and some hideaway wings
Push in on the button and you can hear her sing

Now you can't catch me
Baby you can't catch me
'Cause if you get too close, you know I'm gone like a cool breeze

New Jersey Turnpike in the wee wee hours
I was rollin' slowly 'cause of drizzlin' showers
Here come a flat-top, he was movin' up with me
Then come wavin' goodbye in a little' old souped-up jitney
I put my foot on my tank and I began to roll
Moanin' siren, 'twas the state patrol
So I let out my wings and then I blew my horn
Bye bye New Jersey, I've become airborne

Now you can't catch me
Baby you can't catch me
'Cause if you get too close, you know I'm gone like a cool breeze

Flyin' with my baby last Saturday night
Not a gray cloud floatin' in sight
Big full moon shinin' up above
Cuddle up honey, be my love
Sweetest little thing I've ever seen
I'm gonna name you Maybellene
Flyin' on the beam, set on flight control
Radio tuned to rock 'n' roll
Two, three hours passed us by
Five to two dropped to 5:05
Fuel consumption way too fast
Let's get on home before we run out of gas

Now you can't catch me
No, baby, you can't catch me
'Cause if you get too close, you know I'm gone like a cool breeze

To the Beatles fans coming here for the source of inspiration for Come Together. Here you go

John could have easily avoided that lawsuit if he changed the first line of the song. Paul tried to help him out, but nooooo!

Btw, this is so awesome. For singing guitarists, Chuck Berry was never equaled as a performer. Maybe Jimi. That's about it.


@Onion Woods Yeah, Thanks. Muchos Gracias....

@Thundergod129-7307 English I just fixed my comment. Hope it's clear enough for understanding.


@Onion Woods What language is this ?? Que lengua es este ????

Onion Woods

'Here come old flat top" was just the bit that was use in the song everything else was an exaggeration.
