Cab Driver
by C. Carson Parks

Cab Driver, drive by Mary's place
I just want a chance to see her face
Don't stop the meter, let it race
Cab Driver, drive by Mary's place.

Cab Driver, once more 'round the block
Never mind the ticking of the clock
I only wish we could have had a talk
Cab Driver, once more 'round the block.

Cab Driver, once more down her street
There's the little place we used to meet
That's where I laid my future at her feet
Cab Driver, once more down her street.

Cab Driver, wait here by her door
Perhaps I'll hold her in my arms once more
Then things will be just like they were before
Cab Driver, wait here by her door.

Cab Driver, you better take me home
I guess that I was meant to be alone
I hope god sends me a loved one of my own
Cab Driver, you better take me home.
