"Behind the Wheel/Route 66" as written by and Martin Gore....
My little girl
Drive anywhere
Do what you want
I don't care
I'm in the hands of fate
I hand myself
Over on a plate

Oh little girl
There are times when I feel
I'd rather not be
The one behind the wheel
Pull my strings
Watch me move
I'll do anything

Well if you ever plan to motor west
Travel my way, take the highway that's the best
Get your kicks on Route 66

Well it winds from Chicago to L.A.
More than two thousand miles all the way
Get your kicks on Route 66

Sweet little girl
I prefer
You behind the wheel
And me the passenger
I'm yours to keep
Do what you want
I'm going cheap

You're behind the wheel
You're behind the wheel

Well it goes to St. Louis, down to Missouri
Oklahoma City looks oh so pretty
You'll see Amarillo
Gallup, New Mexico
Flagstaff, Arazona, don't forget Wynonna
Kingman, Barstow, San Bernardino
If you get hip to this kind of tip
Then go take that California trip
Get your kicks on route 66

You're behind the wheel
You're behind the wheel
You're behind the wheel
