"Driving Lesson" as written by Shirley Ann Manson, Bryan David Vig, Douglas Elwin Erickson and Steve W Marker....
Car, car, car
Car, car, car

Let's get behind the wheel
We'll go driving
To the mountains
To the rooftops

We can take it nice and slow
I'll be driving
To the iceburgs
To the edges

Car, get in the car
Car, get in the car

Heading to the clouds
Past the buildings
By the harbor
Through the storm

Tear across the page
By the marker
Leave the light on
By the boy's side

Car, get in the car
Car, get in the car

I can make an honest man of you
I can make you clean if you want me to
I can make you go very far
Just take the car

Get in the car
Car, get in the car

Take the car (gotta feel to make it real)

    General CommentI think "car" is a metaphor. Shirley Manson didn't have a driver's license when this song was written. And seeing as many of her lyrics are either blatantly sexual or have an underlying sexual theme, I would say that's what this song is about. Just listen to the lyrics and the way it's sang - all seductive-like: "We can take it nice and slow, I'll be driving" - come on, totally sexual. Probably saying she'll be on top and in charge. "Leave the light on" - duh. Or maybe "car" isn't a metaphor, and she's just fantasizing about having a kinky screw in a car, and the "leave the light on" lyric is referring to the dome light.

    General Commentcomments disregarded, this song is f**king brilliant. it's similar to lady gaga's edge of glory, but darker and far more frightening. "car get in the car."

    General CommentGod..people...and u cant even add a single comment on this one?Have u got not enough brains or something? Its as easy as one two three...well i think so/ She is posing herself as a witch..trying to convince her mate, that she's ok..so he can get in car with her/ "Just take the car..." She wants to get him in the car as soon as she can, so she could have sex with him..yea its disgusting alright. and maybe kill him on her way over...its a beautiful song
