Ride With Me, California Style

By Malcholm Dark

Come live Your life without regret
And ride with me in my Corvette...

We meet the gang at In-N-Out
A party planned, we twist and shout.
My baby in her see-all skirt
And me in my Hawaiian shirt.
Cruisin' down the coastal highway
Huntington beach comes up my way.
The tide rolls out, the sun comes down
Let's rock this night in partytown.

Sweet ocean air, we're feeling fine
Come take this plate and do a line.
The moon lights up a calming sea
Intense white sand is calling me.
Oh yes, we're sparkin' up the buds
And yes, we're drinkin' down the suds.
Our bonfire roars, the beach well lit
The dactyls dance and worship it.

Oh, mine and baby's eyes just met
A little taste of love to get.
Our midnight venture to the dock
Her thoughts received without much talk.
Young lovers on a sandy beach
She wants to learn, I want to teach.
Our romantic entanglement
This time we share so amply spent.

I live my life without regret
Come ride with me in my Corvette.

I love In-n-Out ;) the fast food and the innuendo seem to sum up the ride
