Drivin' For Lyft
A new original song about being a Lyft Driver

(Intro: - 4 measures)

GPS Robot Lady: Turn left on west Burbank Boulevard.

Verse 1:
We live in the future, that's perfectly clear,
But who knew all you needed to start a career
Was a car and a smartphone app and spare time?
Uh,... I'll explain in the following rhyme.
I was unemployed, my savings were thin.
When a friend messaged me with a solid win.
She said "Relax dude, you'll be just fine.
My ride share service is a real gold mine!"
A ride share service? Is that like a cab?
"No it's more like a ride to the mall from your Dad.
Here's my referral code, I'm sure it'll work."
Well I guess it beats working as a retail clerk.
The vehicle inspection said my car ran fine.
Soon I got approved, and then I went online.
And so it began, a new vocation for me,
Drivin' for L-Y-F-to-the-T!

Chorus 1:
I wrote this song while drivin' for Lyft,
in the middle of a short two hour shift.
Got the pedal to the medal and the wheel to the steel
so that I can earn some money for my very next meal.
Follow the directions on my GPS,
That's all I gotta do to be a success.
Have a lollipop! You can call it a gift!
Yeah, I wrote this song while drivin' for Lyft!

Verse 2:
Now that we're cruising at a moderate speed,
let me point out that my car has all that you need.
I got water bottles for quenchin' your thirst.
I got gum and mints, if your breath is the worst.
I got an umbrella if it rains where I park.
I got a flashlight if you're scared of the dark.
I got Windex, which I use with a squeegee.
I got a vacuum cleaner, like my homeboy Luigi!
I got tissues for a sudden 'ACHOO!'
I got hand sanitizer to clean up the goo.
I got a soft towel if you're bringin' your pup.
I got phone chargers. Tell your homie, 'Wassap?!'
I got in my trunk cleaning products galore.
I got vomit bags. Please don't throw up on the floor!
I got seat covers, put a stop to the mess.
But what I don't got is a boss! *heh heh* YES!!!

Chorus 2:
I wrote this song while drivin' for Lyft,
in the middle of a short four hour shift.
Got the pedal to the medal and the wheel to the steel
so that I can earn some money for my very next meal.
Follow the directions on my GPS,
That's all I gotta do to be a success.
Some cool Febreeze is the odor you sniffed.
Yeah, I wrote this song while drivin' for Lyft!

(Bridge: - 8 measures)

Luke: Hi, are you-
Boyfriend: Hey, thanks for picking us up Uber.
Luke: No sir, this is Lyft. Uh-
Boyfriend: Sorry about that, Uber.
Luke: Okay, so-
Girlfriend: WOOO!!! PAAARRTAAAAAAYYY!!!!
Luke: I, uh-
Girlfriend: You're so cute!
Luke: Well, well, thanks I-
Girlfriend: You look just like Chris Farley!
Luke: I's, ah, hmm.
Boyfriend: You're taking us to Buffalo Wild Wings, right?

Verse 3:
Look for my windshield Lyft sign glow in the night,
And you'll this pair of eyes by the dashboard light.
And I'll take you to a concert, or a bar, or a show,
Or wherever the robot lady tells me to go. (GPS Robot Lady: Head southwest)
If you want a conversation, sure, I'll have a chat,
Or just sit there with my music, hey, I'm okay with that.
I made a pop hit playlist from the last 40 years,
'Cuz the stuff I listen to would likely freak out your ears.
Need an airport ride? Hey, I got your back!
Feelin' hungry? Sure, I'll take you for a snack.
Droppin' girls off at a club, livin' life without a care,
Knowing none of them existed when "Full House" was on the air.
I really hope you'll give your driver a tip,
And give a 5-star rating to them after your trip.
So now that I've told you all all that I know,
I just gotta ask the question, "DO YOU EVEN LYFT BRO?!"

Chorus 3:
I wrote this song while drivin' for Lyft
in the middle of a short six hour shift.
Got the pedal to the medal and the wheel to the steel
so that I can earn some money for my very next meal.
Follow the directions on my GPS,
That's all I gotta do to be a success.
Plug in my Aux Cord, jammin' Taylor Swift!
Yeah, I wrote this song while drivin' for Lyft!

Chorus 4:
I wrote this song while drivin' for Lyft
at the end of a long eight hour shift.
Got the pedal to the medal and the wheel to the steel
so that I can earn some money for my very next meal.
Follow the directions on my GPS,
That's all I gotta do to be a success.
Those Hollywood Hills feel like Tokyo Drift!
Yeah, I wrote this song while drivin' for Lyft!
