[E]My[bass] daddy was a family bassman,
my mama was an engineer,
and I was born one dark gray morn'
A bass E E6 riff
with music comin' in my ears, in my ears.

Chorus:
-------

A bass (played 4 times here)
They call me Baby Driver, and once upon a pair of wheels
hit the road and I'm [E]gone
A7 G#7 G7 F#7 (<-play in quick succession)
what's my num-ber,
I [F#7]wonder how your engine feels, ba ba ba ba ba,
E A7 G#7 G7 F#7 (<-play in quick succession)
Scoot down the road, what's my num-ber,
I [F#7]wonder how your [A]engine [E]feels.
[Badadaaaa]                                     
Play the quick succession this way for both occasions
     [A7]    [G#7]    [G7]    [F#7]                                                                       
e:---5---4---3---2----|
B:---5---4---3---2----|
G:---6---5---4---3----|
D:---5---4---3---2----|
A:---7---6---5---4----|
E:---5---4---3---2----|


Break: scat vocals: (basically same chord progression as 1st verse)
------

E A E E6 riff
Oooooooo doodadoooooouie

Verse 2: (same as verse 1)
--------

My daddy was a prominent frogman,
my mama's in the Naval reserve,
when I was young, I carried a gun,
but I never got the chance to serve, I did not serve.

Chorus 2: same as chorus 1
---------


Saxo Solo:
----------

Play over the chords for the verse and chorus, with harmonies by Simon and Garfunkel
and motorcycle noises

Verse 3:
--------

My daddy got a big promotion,
my mama got a raise in pay.
There's no one home, we're all alone;
Oh, come into my room and play, yes, we can play.

Chorus 3:
---------

I'm not talkin' about your pigtails, I'm talkin' 'bout your sex-appeal
hit the road and I'm gone
What's my number,
I wonder how your engine feels, ba ba ba ba ba,
Scoot down the road, what's my number,
I wonder how your engine feels.

End:

Plays E E6 riff for a while, with dodododoooos.

Then shifts gears:

    [F]     [F6]                                                                              
e:----1--1-1--1-1|
B:----1--3-1--3-1|
G:----2--2-2--2-2|x lots
D:----x--x-x--x-x|
A:----3--3-3--3-3|
E:--1-1--1-1--1-1|


Motorcycle noises, and commentary...
"and the world champion is completing his run off the spectator side...."fade out.
