I got on a city bus and found a vacant seat,
I thought I saw my future bride walking 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 
Darling 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 to get to where she's at
And I was campaign shouting like a southern diplomat

Downtown searching for her, looking all around 
Saw her getting in a yellow cab heading up town 
I caught a loaded taxi, paid up everybody's tab
With a twenty dollar bill, told him 'catch that yellow cab

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