Golden Earring 1973 Moontan
I`ve been driving all night
My hand`s wet on the wheel
There`s a voice in my head
That drives my heel

It`s my baby calling
Says I need you here
And it`s a half past four
And I`m shifting gear

  • Barry Hay (on the lyrics): “One evening I had a few friends over, one of whom was American, and I was brainstorming with them about the form and contents of the story. It had to be something very simple, to which every average person could relate, such as someone in the bathtub and ….. Everyone started to put in ideas and it when it got too chaotic I kicked them out of the house and sent them to some nightclub so that I could work in peace. The idea of an ordinary guy in his car became to take shape and when my American house guest got home in the early hours and read the lyrics, he went wild: “This is it, brilliant! The ultimate American car song!!!”
