This site covers the original British Beatles Albums plus analyses of the lyrics of non-album tracks.
Information on how the Beatles wrote the lyrics to the Rubber Soul album songs can be navigated from below.
Paul McCartney was responsible for most of the lyrics to the Beatles drive my car song, but required a contribution from John to finish the song off. Originally he had the lyrics “baby I can give you golden rings, I can give you anything, I love you” but John Lennon thought that this was very bad and they both huddled together to finish the song off and came up with Baby, you can drive my car.
The song is thought to have been influenced by the harder go getting women that they had begun to meet during their American tour. The subject is basically that the girl is the boss of the situation and the boy is pleading his case to be worth of her.
The recording of drive my car was the first time that a Beatles recording had gone past midnight at abbey road.
Paul sings the song in the style of Little Richard and shares the lead vocals of drive my car with John Lennon.
