15 Big Red Car


Jump in the car and buckle up

And we can drive the whole day long.

Jump in the car, put on my seat belt

And we can ride the whole day long.

Ride into town, walk down the street.

Get back in the car and buckle up into my seat.

Yes, that's the way we do it riding in our Big Red Car.


On holidays, we go down to the beach.

I get back in the car and buckle up into my seat.

'Cause that's the way we do it riding in our Big Red Car.
