I'll tell you what I've done
I'll tell you what I do
Been driving all night
Just to get close to you
Baby babe - I'm moving so fast
You'd better come on

The moon is alright
The freeway's heading south
My heart is going Boom!
There's a strange taste in my mouth
Baby babe - I'm moving real fast
So try to hold on
Try to hold on!

Sleeping in my car - I will undress you
Sleeping in my car - I will caress you
Staying in the back seat of my car making up

So come out tonight
I'll take you for a ride
This steamy ol' wagon
The radio is getting wild
Baby babe - we're moving so fast
I try to hang on
Try to hang on!

Sleeping in my car - I will undress you
Sleeping in my car - I will caress you
Staying in the back seat of my car making love - oh yea!

Sleeping in my car - I will possess you
Sleeping in my car - certainly bless you
Laying in the back seat of my car making up

The night is so pretty and so young
The night is so pretty and so young
So very young...

Sleeping in my car - I will undress you
Sleeping in my car - I will caress you
Staying in the back seat of my car making love to you

Sleeping in my car - I will possess you
Sleeping in my car - certainly bless you
Laying in the back seat of my car making up, making up

(Sleeping in my car)
I will undress you
(Sleeping in my car)

The night is so pretty and so young

Song facts

"Sleeping in My Car", written by Per Gessle, is a song by Roxette, released as the first single from their 1994 album Crash! Boom! Bang!. While it did not perform relatively well in the US, reaching only #50 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, it was in fact a major hit in many other countries. It reached #1 in Sweden and #3 in Canada, and stayed on the Canadian charts for more than half a year.

When Roxette did a concert in Beijing, China in 1995, they were asked to change the suggestive lyrics of the song. "We agreed, but didn't change them in the end," says Per Gessle.
