The Lyrics

Turn the key - it's igniting
hit the road, we are riding
it's the kicks that we get with our old Chevrolet
Cruising on our old El Camino

Music plays, we are listening
holding hand and sweet kissing
we have nowhere to go, hurry we have no
Cruising on our old El Camino

Driving on the streets of our hometown
Slowly, with my honey on the wheel
Stopping at the beach and watch the sundown
sweetest thing a girl can ever feel

On the beach we are sitting
while the stars begin a-litting
it's time to go on driving along
Cruising on our old El Camino

Put the player yet another CD
Turn the music louder and enjoy
Stop at traffic light and smile and kiss me
feels like we'd be still teengirl and boy

Back to home we are driving
it is night now arriving
But next week we go, again you know
Cruising on our old El Camino

I thought this was a neat little tune, but that title line needed to match the pacing --you really have to stretch out the "el cam-ee-ee-no" to make it work. Otherwise, the rest of it was sheer poetry, evocative of a sunny L.A. day near the coast,almost like if Brian Wilson was trying to write a Beach Girls tune instead of a Beach Boys tune. ("get" and "Chevrolet", heehee, funny forced rhyme, too). 354

This song came straight out of my heart. We indeed do have an old Elk, and we often go cruising in our hometown. You don't need LA for it, the Finnish coast is enough, if you can stand the sad fact it isn't summer anymore. But watching the sundown at beach, looking at the nearby islands and seeing the stars litting on these Northern skies, and standing the fact to wear a woollen sweater and not bikinis, is experience enough :-)

Again, my first language isn't English but Finnish, and in Finnish you pronounce exactly how you write. That creates all too easily such forced rhymes like "get" and "Chevrolet", which rhyme in Finnish but not in English. In Finnish the word "Camino" is stressed on first syllable, which makes it work in Finnish.

Hmm...I wonder if there are any other accents and pronunciations that can determine a song parody critique...incidentally, Americans are supposed to say Chevrolet "shev-ro-lay"--but I think I like your way better! :)

It wouldn't be the same in an SUV, would it?
