Little Red Corvette Lyrics

Here is the Little Red Corvette Lyrics.

[Verse 1]

I guess I should've known by the way you parked your car sideways

That it wouldn't last

See, you're the kinda person that believes in makin' out once

Love 'em and leave 'em fast

I guess I must be dumb 'cause you had a pocket full of horses

Trojan and some of them used

[Pre-Chorus]

But it was Saturday night, I guess that makes it all right

And you say - "What have I got to lose?"

[Chorus]

And honey, I say Little Red Corvette

Baby, you're much too fast (Oh)

Little Red Corvette

You need a love that's gonna last

[Verse 2]

I guess I should've closed my eyes when you drove me to the place

Where your horses run free

'Cause I felt a little ill when I saw all the pictures

Of the jockeys that were there before me

Believe it or not, I started to worry

I wondered if I had enough class

[Pre-Chorus]

But it was Saturday night, I guess that makes it all right

And you say, "Baby, have you got enough gas?"

Oh yeah!

[Chorus]

Little Red Corvette

Baby, you're much too fast

(Yes you are)

Little Red Corvette

You need to find a love that's gonna last

(Oh, oh)

[Verse 3]

A body like yours oughta be in jail

'Cause it's on the verge of bein' obscene

Move over, baby, gimme the keys

I'm gonna try to tame your little red love machine

[Chorus]

Little Red Corvette

Baby, you're much too fast

Little Red Corvette

Need to find a love that's gonna last, hey hey

[Chorus]

Little Red Corvette

Honey, you got to slow down (Got to slow down)

Little Red Corvette

'Cause if you don't, you're gonna run your Little Red Corvette right in the ground

(Little Red Corvette)

Right down to the ground (Honey, you got to slow down)

You, you, you got to slow down

(Little Red Corvette)

You're movin' much too fast, too fast

Need to find a love that's gonna last

[Breakdown]

Girl, you got an ass like I never seen, ow!

And the ride

I say the ride is so smooth, you must be a limousine

Ow!

[Chorus]

Baby, you're much too fast

Little Red Corvette

You need a love, you need a love that's, uh, that's gonna last

(Little Red Corvette)

[Chorus]

Babe, you got to slow down (you got to slow down)

Little Red Corvette

'Cause if you don't, 'cause if you don't

You're gonna run your body right into the ground (Right into the ground)

Right into the ground (Right into the ground)

Right into the ground (Right into the ground)

Little Red Corvette Lyrics Meaning

Another aspect in which "Little Red Corvette" is unmistakably post-disco is that it is a song about repercussions. Our narrator warns, "You're going to run your body right to the ground," a frightening warning for a song released at the start of the AIDS crisis. The myth that Saturday night never ends was alive and well in Disco. "Little Red Corvette" asserts that it does and it also reminds us that much of what happened in the darkest corners of clubs and alleys was murky, fumbling, distant, or worse.

The misty images and slow-churning synths maintain this sense of foreboding and perplexity, while "Little Red Corvette" is far from depressing. "A body like yours ought to be in jail/ cause it's on the verge of being obscene," Prince sings at one point: on the verge of being obscene, a little like the next line, "I'm going to try to tame your little red love machine," which could be interpreted as pretty suggestive, but come on; you don't use music this beautiful to make off-color remarks about the female anatomy." Lisa Coleman, Prince's keyboard player, said that the artist was doing more than just "sleeping" in her car in an incident that inspired "Little Red Corvette."
