"Back of a Car" as written by Alex Chilton and Andy Hummel....
Sitting in the back of a car
Music so loud, can't tell a thing
Thinking 'bout what to say
And I can't find the lines

You know I love you a lot
I just don't know, should I not?
Waiting for a brighter day
And I can't find a way

I'll go on and on with you
Like to fall and lie with you
I love you, too
Wo, wo, wo

Baby, I'm too afraid
I just don't know if it's okay
Trying to get away
From everything

Won't you take me home?
It's gone too far inside this car
I know I'll feel a whole lot more
When I get alone

I'll go on and on with you
Like to fall in love with you
I love you too
Wo, wo, wo

Sitting in the back of a car
Music so loud, can't tell a thing
Thinking 'bout what to say
And I can't find the lines

    General CommentMy Guess.. this about a young guy fumbling with an older chick in the back of her car, but wondering if he should go all the way. Its about that cusp of adolescence thing between childhood and adulthood. Sh*t hot song, Sh*t hot band.

    General CommentGreat song about adolescence. One of the better power pop songs of all time. I love the crunching Chilton guitar work here as well

    General CommentTo my ears the lyric sounds more like " I love you too, oh what a world" even though the last half isn't included here and other lyric sites write it as "whoa whoa whoa"... Just a personal take.
