Click clack, open up the door, girls
Click clack, open up the door, boys
Front door, back door, clickety clack
Take you riding in my car

Climb, climb, rattle on the front seat
Spree I spraddle on the backseat
Turn my key, step on my starter
Take you riding in my car
Engine it goes brm brm brrrm
Engine it goes brm brm brrrm
Front seat, backseat, boys and girls
Take you riding in my car
Trees and the houses walk along
Trees and the houses walk along
Truck and a car and a garbage can
I'll take you riding in my car

Brrrm brm brm brm brm brm brrrm

Ships and the little boars chug along
Ships and the little boats chug along
Brrrm brm brm brm brm brm brrrm

Take you riding in my car
I'm a gonna zoom you home again
I'm a gonna zoom you home again
Brrrm brm brm brm brm rolling home
Take you riding in my car

I'm a gonna let You blow the horn
I'm a gonna let you blow the horn
A oorah, a oorah, a oogah, oogah
I'll take you riding in my car

Brrrm brm brm brm brm brm brm, brrrm b' brrrm
