Lyrics

(You can whistle for it)

Baby, you'll never grow old in my eyes
With your golden grill, true love never dies
You wanna watch me while I watch TV
While you're t-t-t-t-touchin' me

We're forever young in paradise
As long as you got the Chevrolet, I will ride

Gonna party like it's 1949
We're in that Chevrolet from July to July
Gonna see it all before he says goodbye
Every man deserves to see the sunrise

"Every man gets his wish.
Every man gets his wish."
You told me this, where is mine?

You said I'd never make it outta here alive
At the rate I was goin', I'd be lucky to die
I was born so bad, not naturally right
The brightest star on Hollywood and Vine

We're gonna party like we're runnin' outta time
We're getting drunk and drivin' fast on cherry wine
Never do belong to anyone I find
Leavin' everything I ever knew behind

"Every man gets his wish.
Every man gets his wish."
You told me this, where is mine?
"Every man gets his wish
Every man gets his wish."
Promised me this, were you lyin'?

I learned how to make love from the movies
He found me waitressin' at Ruby Tuesday's
He said "I wanna buy you up,
Plus a white milkshake."
I said "I'll serve you up
A special side of heartbreak!"
Special side of heartbreak

I was workin' down in the corner café
You would drive by in the Chevrolet
Whistle at me as my hips go sway
"Lana Del Rey, how you get that way?"
How you get that way?

I said "He loves my heart shape sunglasses,
He loves the heart shape my ass is."
Cristal, crystal champagne glasses

"Every man gets his wish.
Every man gets his wish."
You told me this, where is mine?
"Every man gets his wish.
Every man gets his wish."
Promised me this, were you lyin'?
