I'd done a Karaoke version of this for a book trailer so i decided to do a new version for Rocktober - with my signature "beat" style. This ought to get me started (not moving after all so hoping to do more).

PS - I just found this note: According to Paul McCartney, "drive my car" was an old blues euphemism for sex. Ha! Leave it to me to not know that.

Lyrics: 

"Drive My Car" (Writer(s): MCCARTNEY PAUL JAMES, LENNON JOHN WINSTON) edited for female singer

Asked a boy what he wanted to be
He said baby, "Can't you see
I wanna be famous, a star of the screen
But you can do something in between"

Baby you can drive my car
Yes I'm gonna be a star
Baby you can drive my car
And maybe I'll love you

I told the boy that my prospects were good
He said baby, "It's understood
Working for peanuts is all very fine
But I can show you a better time"

Baby you can drive my car
Yes I'm gonna be a star
Baby you can drive my car
And maybe I'll love you
Beep beep mm, beep beep yeah

Baby you can drive my car
Yes I'm gonna be a star
Baby you can drive my car
And maybe I'll love you

I told that boy I can start right away
And he said, "Listen baby I've got something to say
I got no car and it's breaking my heart
But I've found a driver and that's a start"

Baby you can drive my car
Yes I'm gonna be a star
Baby you can drive my car
And maybe I'll love you
Beep beep mm beep beep yeah
Beep beep mm beep beep yeah
Beep beep mm beep beep yeah
Beep beep mm beep beep yeah (fade out)

oh darling

Demo: 

I was fascinated with the Timothy Leary reference to this song, so I added some trippy effects. Basically the production was;

Instruments: Kontakt Komplete: Massive, Funky Bass, Rastaman vibes, Abbey Road drums.
Lounge Lizard Rhodes, Yamaha digital piano(Wurly solo).

Effects: Reaper digital delay and slap back reverb.
