Simon & Garfunkel: Baby Driver Meaning

Baby Driver Lyrics

My daddy was the family bassman
My mamma was an engineer
And I was born one dark gray morn
With music coming in my ears

    This song is clearly about sex. It is full of euphemisms for sex (come into my room and "play") and body parts ("engines" are, well, her engines). He even uses the word in the final verse, making the point that he's interested in her sex appeal, not her hairstyle.

    Most pop songs are, in some fashion about sex. "Ticket to Ride" by the Beatles? About prostitute sex. "Relax" by Frankie Goes to Hollywood? It's not about meditation. It's about sex. Strangely, the one song that's not about sex you'd think would be is George Michael's sex. That song is actually his protest against right-wing nationalist factions who violently opposed Balkan immigration to Greece in the 1990s. Give it another listen, you'll see.

    It's about having to parent yourself while your parents are always away working.

    It's about a struggle to keep your head above water when you are dealing with people who do no necessarily agree with you.
