The Lyrics

He take the blanket from the front seat
He throw the mattress in the back
He's a strong man but he's begging me
To give him what he seems to lack

We've got to hidey-hide
We're gonna have some fun
We've got to hidey-hidey-hide
The old van down by the road...

I'm so glad you bought those curtains
I don't want no one to see
Yes, it's true the traffic's whizzing by
But I like our privacy

We've got to hidey-hide
The van is hoppin' like a toad
We've got to hidey-hidey-hide
The old van down by the road.

(Guitar Solo 1)

And dimly through the steamy windows
I see the flashlight of a cop
Butt's a shadow 'cross the window
But you just can't seem to stop.

You got to ridey-ride
You got to jump me once again
You got to ridey-ridey-ride
The old van down by the road

The old van down by the road.

(Guitar Solo 2)

You got to, you got to, you got to ridey-ridey-ride.
