The Ford Taxi Cab
|New York City:
This is my stake-out, Times Square - the toughest taxi
stand in the world. Names Bud Turner, number 2475.
this is my cab, a '57 Ford - nice lookin' eh'? For you
should see it in action, for instance the other day
I pick up a fare at the Plaza hotel - now this guy's
really in a hurry.
Take me to idle while airport he
says, I've got 30 minutes to catch a plane. OK, I said,
relax, this baby will get you there.
Well you should
see the way that Ford threads a needle through them
cross town streets, manouveres like a fly on a hot dime.
And take off from the lights, man, it's like one of
them jets, except for the noise of course, cause this
Ford's so quiet that most of the time all I can hear
is the meter ticking.
Well we make the airport in a
breeze and I make a nice fat tip, 'cause my fare says
this is the sweetest ridin' cab he's ever been in. New
York's like that, everybody in a hurry.
But that's ok
with me, this Ford will out hustle any other cab on
the streets. It'll hold up longer too. I've got thrity
two thousand miles on it already, and it's still tight
as a drum. When you have to drive for a livin', you
might as well drive the best I say.
