All right this is a one, a two
A one two three four

So far she's taken three red lights
Four wrong turns
She's got the leatherette seat full of cigarette burns
Good-bye in the front
Good-bye all about
Stop this car I'm getting out
This time I'm gonna scream and shout
Stop this car I'm getting out!

I'm not gonna wait until we land in the brook
And have all the little fishies swim by and take a look
Now they're all laughing at us with the brook trout
Stop this car I'm getting out
This time I'm gonna scream and shout
Stop this car I'm getting out!

"Mellow out man, mellow out"
"No, no"
"Yeah, what's he so uptight about?"
"No, no"
"Smoke some of this man"
"And act like an ostrich with his head in the sand?"
This time I'm gonna scream and shout
Stop this car I'm getting out!

Suppose that deer runs across the road
Suppose that truck hits a rock in front of us
All you mellow little fellows could be scattered about
Stop this car I'm getting out
This time I'm gonna scream and shout
Stop this car I'm getting out!

Stop this car I'm getting out!

"Jonathan don't make a scene!"
"O.K., just tell her to wait until the light turns green"
"You're wild man, like your vibes are so uptight"
"Yeah, but not for long pal, I'm saying good night"

She's taken three red lights
Four wrong turns
She's got the leatherette seats full of cigarette burns
Bye in the front
Bye all about
Stop this car I'm getting out
This time I'm gonna scream and shout
Stop this car I'm getting out!

This time I'm gonna scream and shout
Stop this car I'm getting out!

Stop This Car Lyrics

Jonathan Richman – Stop This Car Lyrics

All right this is a one, a two
A one two three four

So far she's taken three red lights
Four wrong turns
She's got the leatherette seat full of cigarette burns
Good-bye in the front
Good-bye all about
Stop this car I'm getting out
This time I'm gonna scream and shout
Stop this car I'm getting out!

I'm not gonna wait until we land in the brook
And have all the little fishies swim by and take a look
Now they're all laughing at us with the brook trout
Stop this car I'm getting out
This time I'm gonna scream and shout
Stop this car I'm getting out!

"Mellow out man, mellow out"
"No, no"
"Yeah, what's he so uptight about?"
"No, no"
"Smoke some of this man"
"And act like an ostrich with his head in the sand?"
This time I'm gonna scream and shout
Stop this car I'm getting out!

Suppose that deer runs across the road
Suppose that truck hits a rock in front of us
All you mellow little fellows could be scattered about
Stop this car I'm getting out
This time I'm gonna scream and shout
Stop this car I'm getting out!

Stop this car I'm getting out!

"Jonathan don't make a scene!"
"O.K., just tell her to wait until the light turns green"
"You're wild man, like your vibes are so uptight"
"Yeah, but not for long pal, I'm saying good night"

She's taken three red lights
Four wrong turns
She's got the leatherette seats full of cigarette burns
Bye in the front
Bye all about
Stop this car I'm getting out
This time I'm gonna scream and shout
Stop this car I'm getting out!

This time I'm gonna scream and shout
Stop this car I'm getting out!
