"Drive My Car" is a song by the English rock band the Beatles. It was mainly written by Paul McCartney, with some help from John Lennon. It was first released on the British version of the band's 1965 album Rubber Soul. The song is about a movie star who asks the narrator of the song to be her chauffeur.[2] McCartney also said that "'Drive my car' was an old blues euphemism for sex".[3]
