Asked a girl what she wanted to be
She said, Baby, can't you see?
I wanna be famous, a star of the screen
But you can do something in between

Baby, you can drive my car
Yes, I'm gonna be a star
Baby, you can drive my car
And maybe I'll love you

I told that girl that my prospects were good
And she said, Baby, it's understood
Working for peanuts is all very fine
But I can show you a better time

Baby, you can drive my car
Yes, I'm gonna be a star
Baby, you can drive my car
And maybe I'll love you
Beep beep mm beep beep, yeah

Baby, you can drive my car
Yes, I'm gonna be a star
Baby, you can drive my car
And maybe I'll love you

I told that girl I could start right away
When she said, Listen, baby, I got something to say
I got no car and it's breaking my heart
But I've found a driver and that's a start

Baby, you can drive my car
Yes, I'm gonna be a star
Baby, you can drive my car
And maybe I'll love you
Beep-beep mm beep-beep, yeah
Beep-beep mm beep-beep, yeah
Beep-beep mm beep-beep, yeah
Beep-beep mm beep-beep, yeah
Beep-beep mm beep-beep, yeah

I've always liked how the Paul and George play that synchronized riff throughout the song.
What a terrible band name.....not a bad group though!!!!
Is there a negative rating for this tripe?

One of their best.
my goodness this is awful.  PSD now.

"Driver´s seat" directly after "Drive my car". I have to correct my rating for the Beatles-song downwards.
This certainly got my attention as a young lad! That fluid, nimble bass, the jazzy, layered harmonies, cool keyboards and catchy guitar!
For some reason this is one of my Beatels top 10, I still don't know why ... maybe that is the reason!
Too bad this song's only 49 seconds long :^ (

Are you referring to John's necktie?


Is that a euphemism?
McCartney's bass makes this one.

My mom was wonderful. She LOVED The Beatles. I'm her last child and she turned 34 that Summer. I was a 3 yr. old turning 4 and  I remember singing "beep beep, m, beep beep, yah" with her. Actually, I remember my love of The Beatles came from that Summer. No one else in the family was listening...Just me and my mom...Thanks Bill

 
Love the sentiment - and BTW this trancends ANYTHING (well.....almost) in the last 40 years

McArtney really could run a nice bass line, couldn't he.

 
Did you miss the "i" out of run?  It ain't that good!

I'd have this playing on the car stereo and a friend of my son's would always sing "beep-beep-beep, beep-beep-beep, yeah!" oblivious to the violation of rhythm. He never could get it right, but he enjoyed it.

More cowbell, Richard.

Yes, indeed. I've always loved the bass in this.

Had this one on reel to reel tape, bought in store,my very first STEREO experience!
This is a great tune that serves as a hell of a kick-off for the 'Rubber Soul' album. :bananajam:
baby i love you :hearteyes: :heartkiss:
nice_ transition from Chuck Berry (Nadine) this song's a 10 from me ed:(and then on to War-Low Rider--sweet set!!!)
Gave the song a 8, but this set?: Beatles - Drive My Car Chuck Berry - Nadine A Band of Bees - A Minha Menina A 10/10 :clap:
Great mix from Chuck Berry into The Beatles. As "Nadine" finished...I thought...it'll be a Beatles song next. Quality.

Sure, why not? no, really, I'm just curious, when people say that they are sick of something on RP, what is it they WANT to listen to? (and don't say "Choctaw Bingo" or I'll have to take you behind your trailer and beat you with a switch!) I thought that we were all here for the diversity of the music?
More Choctaw Bingo!!!

No Revolution # 9 takes it for the worst Beatles songs. Yoko was one of those ongoing screams on that track....
I love Revolution 9! I think it's awesome!

Rubber Soul is still my favorite Beatle's album. I'll agree that this song is simple and does sound dated, but it's always fun to hear as are any Beatle's songs. Refreshing compared to a lot of what is played today.
I think Rubber Soul shows exactly how not to be a cookie-cutter band. Unfortunately, few bands nowadays break the mold.
Gotta love it - it's got a cowbell!
Beep beep Beep beep Yeah!

Love it... who wouldn't. Sure, it's a little dated... but so is Mozart. Jacques Radio Paradise: Uh huh...
