Verse 1:
--------
E bass
My 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
                     E
hit the road and I'm gone
A7     G#7   G7  F#7  (<-play in quick succession)
what's my    num-ber,
  F#7
I 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,
  F#7             A      E
I wonder how your engine feels.
E7
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.
