Shut Up and Drive
Rihanna Lyrics


I've been looking for a driver who is qualified
So if you think that you're the one step into my ride
I'm a fine-tuned supersonic speed machine
Got a sunroof top and a gangster lead

So if you feel it, let me know, know, know
Come on now, what you waiting for, for, for?
My engine's ready to explode, explode, explode
So start me up and watch me go, go, go, go
Get you where you wanna go, if you know what I mean
Got a ride that's smoother than a limousine
Can you handle the curves, can you run all the lights
If you can, baby boy, then we can go all night

'Cause it's 0 to 60 in 3.5
Baby, you got the keys
Now shut up and drive, drive, drive
Shut up and drive, drive, drive

I got class like a '57 Cadillac
And overdrive with a whole lot of boom in the back
You look like you can handle what's under my hood
You keep saying that you will, boy, I wish you would

So if you feel it, let me know, know, know
Come on now, what you waiting for, for, for?
My engine's ready to explode, explode, explode
So start me up and watch me go, go, go, go

Get you where you wanna go, if you know what I mean
Got a ride that's smoother than a limousine
Can you handle the curves, can you run all the lights
If you can, baby boy, then we can go all night

'Cause it's 0 to 60 in 3.5
Baby, you got the keys
Now shut up and drive, drive, drive
Shut up and drive, drive, drive

'Cause your Maybach ain't got what I got
Get it, get it, don't stop, it's a sure shot
Ain't a Ferrari, huh, boy, I'm sorry
I ain't even worried, so step inside
And ride, ride, ride

So if you feel me, let me know, know, know
Come on now, what you waiting for, for, for?
My engine's ready to explode, explode, explode
So start me up and watch me go, go, go, go

Get you where you wanna go, if you know what I mean
Got a ride that's smoother than a limousine
Can you handle the curves, can you run all the lights
If you can, baby boy, then we can go all night

'Cause it's 0 to 60 in 3.5
Baby, you got the keys
Now shut up and drive, drive, drive
Shut up and drive, drive, drive
Shut up and drive, drive, drive
Shut up and drive, drive, drive

​Listening to Rihanna's older songs makes me super proud that my childhood years had great music like this.

Your childhood!?! 😅 If you only knew.

@Mondo i did

no one asked

@wall guy definitely funny watching people of my age group from the 90's saying all the songs now are trash. I definitely live to now seeing people from my generation saying the same thing which people before our gen was saying. I can see now that whatever people were listening to in their teen to late 20's (especially main stream) is what they consider the best music ever. For me I like my music from that time as well, but I am cognizant of probably the reason why I like the music in that period maybe because that's what I was just listening to at the time.

Just funny seeing that guy getting worked up, saying you insulted him and getting all emotional because you don't agree with him saying all music since then is trash

The day this video was released was the day my daughter was born. I’ll never forget it. Now she sings this song with me! This song and “Clover Cage - Make a Difference” are the two songs keeping me sane through these tough times. I just want to send love to everyone and I want everyone to know things will get better. We are in this together..I love you ❤️

Angelica

I love how this song sounds like it could have been on Avril Lavigne, Hillary Duff, Lindsay Lohan, Kelly Clarkson or Pink's album that time. Rihanna should record more rock-style songs, her voice matched it. ❤️

Lindsay would have ATE this up for her Herbie movie

Darius Coates

I mean there’s a slight new wave influence but this is still pop more than anything
