Drive It Like You Stole It

She showed you the road
Said let’s go for a ride
Got the car right here
Got the time so let’s just go

Turned it over once
Started a little rough
You said I’m not sure about this
She said there’s nothing to it

Just drive it like you stole it
Drive it like you stole it

Blinker ticking like a broken clock
Tells the right time twice a day
This one moves in spite of itself
Ticking like a broken clock

Just drive it like you stole it
Drive it like you stole it

Nothing broken about this love
No matter how hard it might get
Runs as loud as a Model T

Rough as a backwoods road
She said let me drive
You gave up the wheel

Pulled over by a lake
You said my heart won’t quit on you
She just smiled and said
I’m not the kind to let that go

Heart ticking like a perfect clock
Tells the right time all the time
Ticking like a perfect clock
Clicking on all cylinders

Drive it like you stole it
Drive it like you stole it

Come sit beside me while we drive
Drive it like we stole it
