Driving in Cars With Boys is an unreleased leaked song. t is reputed to be an outtake from the Born to Die album. A demo version is also available to find online, with the...
They say I'm wastin' time they say that I'm no good.
Summer of my life, not doing what I should.
Call me poison ivy 'cause I'm far from good,
Pretty from afar like a dark star.

They say I'm dangerous, they think I'm really bad.
I'm just making up for what I never had.
Go out every night whenever I feel sad.
Oh this drive-by love, got me crazy like a drug.

I wear my red lipstick, got my make up on,
Stumble into trouble, siren with a sad song.
They all got girlfriends, but I'm the one that they want:
Miss America with the blue mascara on.

I've spent my whole life driving in cars with boys,
Riding 'round town drinking in the white noise.
Used to talk about where we'd be and where we'd go.
Now we know, baby, now we know.
Spent my whole life wasted in bars with boys.
Playin' rock 'n' roll dancing in the loud noise.
Used to talk about where we'd be and where we'd go.
Now we know, baby, now we know.

Mommy's Mercedes or Billy's pick up truck?
Come home late at night and baby picks me up.
Tell him "Just drive on and d-don't ever stop.
Don't take me home again, take me to a new land."

I wear my red lipstick, grab my coat and gun.
Wonder if this is it, it's darkest before dawn.
Sometimes I wanna give in, but I just have to go on.
Miss America. Now I'm gone, baby, gone.

I've spent my whole life driving in cars with boys,
Riding 'round town drinking in the white noise.
Used to talk about where we'd be and where we'd go.
Now we know, baby, now we know.
Spent my whole life wasted in bars with boys
Playing rock 'n' roll dancing in the loud noise.
Used to talk about where we'd be and where we'd go.
Now we know, baby, now we know.

I was born to live fast, die young,
Leave a beautiful corpse, live my life on the run.
Got my cash and my Louis Vuitton,
Diamonds, and guns.
Girls just wanna, just wanna have fun.

I've spent my whole life driving in cars with boys,
Ridin' 'round town drinking in the white noise.
Used to talk about where we'd be and where we'd go.

I've spent my whole life driving in cars with boys,
Ridin' 'round town drinking in the white noise.
Used to talk about where we'd be and where we'd go.
Now we know, baby, now we know.
Spent my whole life wasted in bars with boys
Playing rock 'n' roll dancing in the loud noise.
Used to talk about where we'd be and where we'd go.
Now we know, baby, now we know.

    General CommentI think this one is kind of the deeper story to 'This is what makes us girls', or a continuation at least :)

    General CommentI really love this song, kind of describes a rebellious teenage streak a lot of us had. Takes me back :-)
