...or possibly 'Car 67' by Driver 67

CAR 67
(Paul Phillips / Peter Zorn)

Driver 67 (vocal: Paul Phillips) - 1978


(Car 67, car 67, where are you?)
(Come in 67, 67, can you hear me?)

Hey Control, this is 67 here
I can hear you loud and I can hear you clear, yeah
Control, this is 67 here
I can hear you loud and I can hear you clear, yeah

(Good morning 67, good morning
Bit of a late start, isn't it?)

Is there something that you want me to do-ooh, yeah
(Yes, we have a job for you)
You know I'm only here to please you-ooh
(We want you to pick up a young lady at 83 Royal Gardens)

Control have mercy on me
I don't wanna do the pick-up, isn't anybody else free?
Stuck in a jam in a one-way street
Why don't you tell her she'd be quicker if she used her feet, yeah

(You must be joking 67)
(Now, come on I must have a time for the pick-up)

The best that I can do
Is tell you tomorrow, yeah
'Cause if I do the job
It's gonna cause me sorrow-ooh

(Oh, really 67, you're putting me in a bad position)
(This is too bad, too bad)
(I must have a time for the pick-up)
(What's you're problem?)
(What's wrong 67?)

To tell you the truth
I had a bad, bad night
My girl left home
In the middle of a fight

(Sorry about that 67, sorry to hear that)

Controller have mercy on me
I don't wanna do the pick-up at number 83
And the girl of my dreams left me all alone
And at number 83 is where she made her home

(Ah-hah, I see 67, I understand your problem)

Is there something else you want me to do-ooh, yeah
(Yes, you can have another job 67)
You know I'm only here to please you
(Stand by all cars, stand by)
(Time for a pick-up at 83 Royal Gardens)
(First call for 83 Royal Gardens)
(Can somebody give me a time for the pick-up?)
(Stand by 67, we'll have an other job for you shortly)
(Calling all cars, calling all cars)
(Time for a pick-up at 83 Royal Gardens)
(First call to 83 Royal Gardens)
(Somebody give me a time)
(Can you do it car 23?)
