Verse 1:

E bass
My daddy was a family bassman,

and I was born one dark gray morn'
     A bass			    E   E6 riff
with music comin' in my ears, in my ears.

Chorus:
-------
A bass (played 4 times here)
They call me Baby Driver, and once upon a pair of wheels
		     E
hit the road and I'm gone
A7     G#7   G7  F#7  (<-play in quick succession)
what's my    num-ber,
  F#7
I wonder how your engine feels, ba ba ba ba ba,
E		     A7     G#7   G7  F#7  (<-play in quick succession)
Scoot down the road, what's my    num-ber,
  F#7		  A	 E
I wonder how your engine feels.
E7

My daddy was a prominent frogman,
my mama's in the Naval reserve,
when I was young, I carried a gun,
but I never got the chance to serve, I did not serve.

Chorus 2: same as chorus 1

Play over the chords for the verse and chorus, with harmonies by Simon and Garfunkel
and motorcycle noises

Verse 3:
--------
My daddy got a big promotion,
my mama got a raise in pay.
There's no one home, we're all alone;
Oh, come into my room and play, yes, we can play.

Chorus 3:
---------
I'm not talkin' about your pigtails, I'm talkin' 'bout your sex-appeal
hit the road and I'm gone
What's my   number,
I wonder how your engine feels, ba ba ba ba ba,
Scoot down the road, what's my number,
I wonder how your engine feels.
