This is killing me. I heard a song on the classic rock station today, and I've heard it before but I can't remember the name of the song or the artist. And I think I'm mangling the lyrics, but here's what I can remember:

"Reeeeed lights, greeeeeeen lights, stop and go driiiiiiiive"

or it could be red lines green lines......and maybe stop and go die.......see, I don't know.

But it's a popular classic rock song. Help?

    Male, tenor. At first I guessed Billy Idol, but that's not it.

    I also found lyrics to Judas Priest's Thunder Road......that might be it, I'm not sure. Was that a popular song?

    Red light green light 'round the town,
    I found a penny on the ground
    Met a friend I never know'd,
    walkin' down ol' Rocky Road.

    Red Green ol' Rocky Road, tell me what you see.
    Tell me inside out, tell me upside down,
    All around the block, all around the town.
    Red Green ol' Rocky Road, tell me what you see.

    Jimmy, come out and play.
    Well Red Light, Green Light and I'll be "it" today.
    Red Green ol' Rocky Road, tell me what you see.

    Hey Jimmy Huggins your name's been called
    Come and stand beside the wall.
    Pick a girl that you know well
    You can kiss and you can tell.
    Red Green ol' Rocky Road, tell me what you see.

    Jenny, come out and play.
    Well Red Light, Green Light and I'll be "it" today.
    Red Green ol' Rocky Road, tell me what you see.

    Little Miss Jenny, don't you hide
    Papa's gonna take you for a pony ride.
    One potato, two potato, three potato, four
    Cross the line and close the door.

    (Repeat)

    Red Green ol' Rocky Road, tell me what you see
    Tell me inside out, tell me upside down,
    All around the block, all around the town.
    Red Green ol' Rocky Road, tell me what you see.

    Red light green light 'round the town,
    I found a penny on the ground
    Met a friend I never know'd,
    walkin' down ol' Rocky Road.

    Guaranteed to bust a ho, yeah I'm so original
    I don't have to, I told you from the get go
    I like to lay low with my niggas blowin' endo
    We like to drink, talk shit, and spit at bitches
    And that's the way we do it, sometimes we hittin' switches
    In the low-rider slidin' to the hood and back
    It's snoop dogg in the motherfuckin' cadillac
    They call it Snoop Deville for real
    I get the money and I never ever pop no pills
    I used to pop'em, I'm lyin' to these motherfuckers now
    I used to do all kind of shit when I was wild
    They used to call me Lil Bow Wow, now I'm Big Bow Wow
    In this motherfucka bustin' a freestyle
    Snoop Dogg is in the place to see
    Do it with my nephew Freddy D.
    Ooh wee, in the place to see

    Who'd a thought I'd be turnin' your frown baby?
    Never know about things these days baby
    'til your cell phone rings and it's me baby

    [Chorus]

    Red light
    You’re lonely
    Nobody cares

    I’m tired of hanging round
    I’m tired of this old town
    I’m tired of all the old familiar ways

    I’m want to take a trip
    Get on a rocket ship
    I’ll be a satellite in fourteen days

    I take a pack of paracetamol
    Then I can wait around and feel it all
    Or I can take some time
    To get a grip on my mind
    Take a walk outside
    Maybe just keep rocking out

    Red light green light
    Stuck in a hole
    Just past bedtime
    I don’t wanna know
    Red light green light
    Stuck in a hole with you
    And there’s nothing you can do
    You got a
    Red light green light
    Stuck in a hole
    Just past bedtime
    I don’t wanna know
    Red light green light
    Stuck in a hole with you

    It’s nothing new

    I got a grin to grip
    I gotta want to win
    While all the monkeys throw their weight around

    Don’t wanna share your cup
    Don’t wanna beat you up
    I’d rather wait a while and beat you down

    I put a CD in my stereo
    Instead of taking the needle
    And I can pull right in
    With the patience I’ll win
    Cos in an ideal world
    There’ll be no time for ideas
    Got a

    Red light green light
    Stuck in a hole
    Just past bedtime
    I don’t wanna know
    Red light green light
    Stuck in a hole with you
    And there’s nothing you can do
    You got a
    Red light green light
    Stuck in a hole
    Just past bedtime
    I don’t wanna know
    Red light green light
    Stuck in a hole with you

    Yeeaaaahhhh!

    Took a bit of time to see
    I like being me

    So put the crowd in shock
    Get their feelings unlocked
    Get your wagon to a check in
    And it’s adios amigos
    Got a

    Red light green light
    Stuck in a hole
    Just past bedtime
    I don’t wanna know
    Red light green light
    Stuck in a hole with you
    And there’s nothing you can do
    You got a
    Red light green light
    Stuck in a hole
    Just past bedtime
    I don’t wanna know
    Red light green light
    Stuck in a hole with you
    Stuck in a hole with you

    Sorry Reneados, none of those three.

    Like I said, I may be mishearing the lyrics. But it's definitely classic rock, I would guess 80's.

    i wanted love, i needed love

    That Wildhearts song is really, really close though......the lyrics fit with the rhythm. Oy, wish there was a sample somewhere I could listen to.
