Lyrics of Lets Go

She's driving away with the dim lights on
She's making a play and she can't go wrong
She never waits too long
She's winding them down on her clock machine
And she won't give up 'cause she's seventeen
She's a frozen fire
She's my one desire

And I don't want to hold her down
Don't want to break her crown
When she says, let's go
I like the nightlife baby

She says, let's go
She's laughing inside 'cause they can't refuse
She's so beautiful now, she doesn't wear her shoes
She doesn't like to choose
She's got wonderful eyes and a risque mouth
And when I ask her before, she said she's holding out
She's a frozen fire
She's my one desire



'Let's Go' was the first single from The Cars' album 'Candy-O' released in 1979. It was written by Ric Ocasek and features lead vocals by Cars bassist Ben Orr. The single peaked at #14 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart in the U.S., but the song was an even bigger success elsewhere. In Canada, the track reached #5, and remains the Cars' highest ever charting single in that country. Similarly, in Australia 'Let's Go' peaked at #6, and remains The Cars' highest charted hit in that country.

The song's signature hook, a series of claps followed by a shouted 'Let's go!' is derived from the 1962 instrumental of the same name by The Routers. Its infectious “clap clap clap-clap-clap clap-clap-clap-clap Let's Go! ' chant became a favorite of cheerleaders and crowds worldwide.

The song tells the story of a 17-year old girl and her budding interest in 'the nightlife'. It is told from the perspective of a teenage boy who wishes to ask her out for a date. She refuses any and all of his advances.

In 1990, Isley Brother Ernie Isley covered the song for the compilation album Rubáiyát.

In 2007, the tune of the song was used in a series of television commercials for Kmart Australia.[] In 2008 and 2009, it was heard in a commercial for Lee Jeans.
