about

A little bit eco-friendly and a little naughty, It's the Ride was written to perform at Andi Rae's 5th Annual Earth Day show. Since then it has become a fan favorite at any show - Earth and non-Earth related.

lyrics

All I really want to do is take you out tonight
Some dark secluded lover's lane with no one else in sight
This old truck's got lots of room inside
It's not the destination, it's the ride, ride, ride
 
Your wishes may come true and I will go with you tonight
We won't be gettin' any sleep if you position your cards right
But the smoke your truck is spitting is obscuring the moonlight
No it's not the destination it's the ride ride ride!

There's country on the radio
A Haggard song from long ago
I'll tell you that I love you so
(At least I will tonight)
I want you now, don't want to wait
So pick me up and don't be late
It's not the destination it's the ride

My little eco-angel, I'd do anything to see...
A whole lot more of you and a little more of me
But this old truck has been my joy and pride
She's my one and only she's my ride ride ride

Well I've never liked competin' and I won't be satisfied
'Til that pollutin' and fallutin' truck has been cast to the side
There's a cleaner way to travel - take the bus or get a bike
Or I won't be taking you sir for a ride ride ride

There's country on the radio
A Haggard song from long ago
I'll tell you that I love you so
(At least I will tonight)
I want you now, don't want to wait
So pick me up and don't be late
It's not the destination it's the ride

Don't you want to take me home tonight?

Now darlin', sweetie, sugar, you're the prettiest thing I've seen
Your summer dress, your sparkling eyes and your politics are green
But this old truck's not looking for a bride
It's not the destination, it's the ride, ride, ride

There's country on the radio
A Haggard song from long ago
I won't say that I love you so
(I'll just say goodbye)
That stupid truck ain't gonna last
So guzzle gas and kiss my ass
It's not the destination it's the ride
