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

Dont know if anyone cares at all but yesterday I hacked my girl friends Instagram password by using InstaPwn. Find it on google :D

Elvis was what Justin Timberlake is today.

@Red Fox Yeah, he was a degenerate pervert. His legendary status allowed him to get away with those things.

GOLDBAND45rpm

@Ian T Bone Walker influenced his guitar style
