Cab driver once more round the block, Never mind the ticket or the clock.

Very nostalgic and catchy tune from 1968 --  I don't think anyone will ever sing such a tribute to UBER-- & could UBER handle such a special trip as is described in the song ? Would the lovesick fellow be properly insured ?

Cab driver drive by Mary's place,
I just wanna chance to see her face.
I hope God to meet her any place,
Cab driver drive by Mary's place.

Cab driver once more round the block,
Never mind the ticket or the clock.
I only wish we could have had a talk,
Cab driver once more round the block.

Cab driver once more down her street,
There's a little place we use to meet.
That's where I laid my future at her feet,
Cab driver once more down her street.

Cab driver take care by her door,
I just want to hold her in my arms once more.
And then maybe just like we were before,
Cab driver take care by her door.

Cab driver you better take me home,
I guess that I was meant to be alone.
I hope God gives me a lover of my own,
Cab driver you better take me home.

Cab driver you better take me home,
Cab driver you better take me home.

Unforgettable Cuban Taxis

Taxi rides in Cuba are the closest to a time machine ride, hold on into the American muscle car from the 50's or earlier while you can. Detroit's motor glory in the Habana's streets as a experience is set to a possible extinction now that Obama has ordered full restoration of diplomatic communications with Cuba. 

Please enjoy Our little tribute to the Cuban taxi from the best of the web:

There are no ways to keep them running for decades without parts unless you reach for the resourceful spirit of the Cubans
