Driving school driver woman car
In My Car I’m a Star
by Yvonne Connor

In my car I’m a star
I’m a road star driver
I’m a gold star rider

when I first learned to drive
I thought I’d best get it right
so I hired for an hour
this European guy
he was a driving instructor
with a roving eye
each week he would come
and pick me up
we’d start at my place
and I’d try not to race
he’d show me when
to make a left turn
park on a dime
and drive a straight line
he’d drive me home after
to set the next date
and all of the while
his hand on my leg
I thought it was
his European way
so I let him do it, anyway …

I’m a gold star rider
in my car I’m a star
I’m a gold star driver
flyin’ under the radar

I get from place to place
and yeah sometimes I race
no question there
I’m driving now without a care

‘Cause I’m a gold star rider
in my car I’m a star
I’m a road star driver
In my car I’m a star
