The Cadillac, from the perhaps bittersweet year of 1973, was taken on East 13th Street. The song, “Lady D” as performed by Lady D herself comes from 1979 and was taken from the peerless Last Days Of Man On Earth. Big surprise her dream man drives a Mercedes?
my telephone number he had wanted from me I said 469-(ah)123 / Well he wrote it down with no hesitation I was hoping that he’d take it as an invitation / Well he called my house around 10 that night And I felt that everything was falling just right / We talked for about 20 minutes a time You see I told him all that was on my mind / I said since we met I’ve been checkin ya out and I just have to see what you’re all about / he said “Baby love I’m not like the rest, because what I’m made of is nothing but the best. / What separates me from the other guys is personality that can socialize. / Now I can treat you like no other man, Because nooone can do it like Eddy can. / Now what I have in mind is a little plan about going out, and I hope you can, / because while we’re together on our date we can get a relationship goin’ straight.” / Then I said maybe we can give it a chance because what can happen but a little romance? / “Then I’ll see you later Miss Foxy Lady, I’ll be pickin ya up in a blue Mercedes.” / Well that Friday evening heard at the door was a blue Mercedes I did adore. / Well I got inside, and we were on our way I told him how much I liked his o.j.¹ / Then we went uptown to check out the sound I got the car and I looked around / I saw a sign that was on the door It said welcome to Studio Fifty-Four
