Chuck Berry – Nadine (Is It You?) lyrics

As I got on a city bus and found a vacant seat
I thought I saw my future bride walkin’ up the street
I shouted to the driver “Hey conductor, you must slow down
I think I see her, please let me off this bus”

Nadine, Honey is that you?
Oh, Nadine, Honey, is that you?
Seems like every time I see you darlin’
You got something else to do

I saw her from the corner when she turned and doubled back
And started walkin’ toward a coffee-colored Cadillac
I was pushin’ through the crowd tryin’ to get to where she’s at
And I was campaign shoutin’ like a southern diplomat

Nadine, Honey is that you?
Oh, Nadine, Honey, where are you?
Seem like every time I catch-up with you
You off to something new

Downtown searchin’ for her, lookin’ all around
Saw her getting’ in a yellow cab headin’ uptown
I caught a loaded taxi, paid up everybody’s tab
With a twenty dollar bill, told him “Catch that yellow cab”

Nadine, Honey is that you?
Oh, Nadine, Honey is that you?
Seem like every time I catch-up with you
You off to something new

She moves around like a wave of summer breeze
Go, driver, go, gone, catch her balmy breeze
Movin’ through the traffic like a mounted cavalier
Leaning out the taxi window trying to make her hear

Nadine, Honey is that you?
Oh, Nadine, Honey, is that you?
Seems like every time I see you darlin’
You up to somethin’ new
