Nadine lyrics

As I got on a city bus and found a vacant seat
I thought I saw my future bride walking up the street
I shouted to the driver, hey, conductor, you must
Slow down, I think I see her, please, let me off the bus

Oh, honey, is that you
Woah, nadine
Oh, honey, is that you
Seems every time I see you, baby, you've got somethin' else to do

Woah, I saw from the corner when she turned and doubled back
And started walkin' toward a coffee-colored cadillac
Pushin' through the crowd, tryin' to get to where she's at
I was campaign-shouting like a southern diplomat

Chorus repeat

You're off with someone, someone new!

Downtown, searchin' for her, lookin' all around
Saw her getting in a yellow cab heading uptown
I caught a loaded taxi, picked up everybody's tab
Tipped a twenty dollar bill, I said you catch that yellow cab

Chorus repeat last line repeat x4

Make a scene
Keep it clean
Eat a bean, nadine
