Radio XXXV, side A, track 2: “You Might Think” by The Cars

The Cars - You Might ThinkOh, The Cars, I’ll be honest with you, I think I may have forgotten that I’d already recorded this one before.  It happened sometimes.  I mean, I’d recorded over 700 songs off the radio at this point, The Cars, and I was just trying to keep it all straight about what I had and didn’t have on my cassettes in my little hormone-addled, anxiety-riddled noggin.  So cut me a little slack if I recorded this one again merely because I forgot I’d already recorded it probably over a year before.  And you should take it as a compliment, too, The Cars, because as soon as I heard this song, I just had to record it because it was so good.  So even if I forgot that I already had it, I didn’t forget that this was an awesome song.  So, to sum up, you might think I’m foolish to record the same song twice, but when it came down to it, all I wanted was you.  See what I did there?  I know.  Lame.  Sorry.

“You Might Think”

<awesome The Cars jam>

A’well’a you might think I’m crazy

T’hang around with you

Or maybe ya think I’m lucky

T’have somethin’ to do

But I think
That you’re wild

Inside me is some child

You might think I’m foolish

Maybe it’s untrue

(You might think)
You might think I’m crazy
(All I want)
All I want is you

You might think it’s hysterical

But I know when you’re weak

Ya think you’re in the movies
Everything’s so deep

But I think
That you’re wild
When you flash that fragile smile

You might think it’s foolish

Whatcha put me through

(You might think)
You might think I’m crazy
(All I want)
All I want is you

And it was hard
 
So hard to take

There’s no escape

Without a scrape

Butchoo kept it goin’
‘Til the sun fell down

Ya kep’ it
Goin’

<awesome The Cars jam>

A’well’a you might think I’m delirious
The way I run you down

But somewhere
Sometimes
When you’re curious
I’ll be back around

Oh, I think
That you’re wild

And so-o-o uniquely styled

You might think it’s foolish

This chancy rendezvous

(You might think)
You might think I’m crazy
(All I want)
All I want is you

Ah-oo
All I want is you
(All I want
Is
You)
