"Brand New Cadillac" as written by Henry Nicola Mancini and Vince Taylor....
Drive!
Drive!

My baby drove up in a brand new Cadillac
Yes she did!
My baby drove up in a brand new Cadillac
She said, "Hey, come here, Daddy!"
"I ain't never comin' back!"

Baby, baby, won't you hear my plea?
C'mon, sugar, just come on back to me
She said, "Balls to you, Big Daddy."

Baby, baby, won't you hear my plea?
Oh c'mon, just hear my plea
She said, "Balls to you, Daddy."
She ain't coming back to me

Baby, baby drove up in a Cadillac
I said, "Jesus Christ, where'd you get that Cadillac?"
She said, "Balls to you, big Daddy."
She ain't never coming back!
She ain't never coming back!
She ain't never coming back!
She ain't never coming back!
She ain't never coming back!

    General CommentGreat song. I love how he sings cadillac. I think's its about a girl who's cheating on her boyfriend with a rich guy, and when the rich guy gets her a cadillac, she just goes to rub it into her boyfriend's face and then dumps him. That's how I've always seen it, though it might not be what they intended when they wrote the song.

    General CommentLove the song, but does anyone have any idea what "Balls to you, daddy" means?

    I've always sort of thought it just means "screw you".
