Hello you fool I love you
C'mon join the joyride

I hit the road out of nowhere
I had to jump in my car
And be a rider in a love game
Following the stars.

Don't need no book of wisdom
I get no money talk at all.

She has a train going downtown
She's got a club on the moon
And she's telling all her secrets
In a wonderful balloon.
Oh she's the heart of the funfair
She's got me whistling her private tune.

And it all begins where it ends
And she's all mine my magic friend.

She says: Hello you fool I love you
C'mon join the joyride
Join the joyride

She's a flower I can paint her
She's a child of the sun
We're part of this together
Could never turn around and run

Don't need no fortune teller
To know where my lucky love belongs oh no

Cos it all begins where it ends
And we're all magic friends

She says: Hello you fool I love you
C'mon join the joyride
Join the joyride

She says: Hello you fool I love you
C'mon join the joyride
Be a joyrider

I take you on a skyride
A feeling like you're spellbound
The sunshine is a lady
Who ROX you like a baby

She says: Hello you fool I love you
C'mon join the joyride
Join the joyride

Hello you fool I love you
C'mon join the joyride
Join the joyride

Hello hello you fool I love you
C'mon c'mon join the joyride
Be a joyrider

Song facts

"Joyride", written by Per Gessle, was the first single released from Swedish pop duo Roxette's 1991 album Joyride, the follow-up to the group's highly successful Look Sharp!. The single topped the charts across Europe, and in Australia, Canada and the United States, where it spent one week at number one on the Billboard Hot 100, their last to do so, in May 1991. In the UK, "Joyride" peaked at #4.

In interviews, Gessle states he got the idea for the opening line of this song from his girlfriend (now wife) who left a note on his piano that stated, "Hello, you fool, I love you."

During the 1994 Stanley Cup playoffs this became the intro anthem to the Vancouver Canucks as they took the ice before each game.
