The Cars Cruiser cover song lyrics video by retro Swamp Music Players

A classic rock cover song of "The Cars" song 'Cruiser' performed by Swamp Music Players.
Our cover can be found on our 2017 album 'Urban Crime'

Our version of 'Crusier' is LoFi with some more swamp rock tones and underground punk influences to go along with the newwave elements. Be advised the lyrics are from the 1982 Live version performed by Benjamin Orr at one concert rather than the recorded version.
Cars Cruiser cover, new wave music cover.

"Big city noise disappears
Sucker punch is in your heart
Light is reason light is clue
My shape is shapeless in your suit
Chrome red eyeballs reflect and roll
A simple sun is slowly sinking
Roman shoes and pretty hats
Glitter bombs that beat the beat
You roam the night 'cause you're a cruiser
And ya you never get enough
When you're cruisin' down the street
And takin' off the heat
When you're on the moonlight run
Floating jets and big vignettes
Get the treatment grab a cab
Set aside the screaming fish
Tell the world why you're so glad
Flip the switches pull the plug
You always wait for better news
You need a hit you need a suck
You don't easily get amused, now do you
You roam the night 'cause you're a cruiser
And ya you never get enough
When you're cruisin' down the street
And you're takin' off the heat
When you're on the moonlight run
