Best Songs: L'Trimm 'Cars with the Boom'

4/23/13

Believe it or not, L'Trimm were among the most hated hip hop stars in the 1980s. Lady Tigra and Bunny D's bubblegum take on Miami Bass seriously irked hardcore rappers. But L'Trimm were not so much out to impress as to entertain. And that is why we think their goofy breakthrough single, 'Cars with the Boom,' is one of the Best Songs Ever, dang it:

'Cars with the Boom,' arguably L'Trimm's most famous song, is lifted from the Florida duo's debut album and Miami Bass classic, Grab It! The single peaked at #54 in 1988. In all honesty, there is very little else to tell y'all. Lady Tigra and Bunny D were the definition of β€œone-hit wonder” and after Grab It! they gradually slipped back into obscurity.

L'Trimm feature in our Best of Miami Bass Hip Hop playlist, alongside the likes of 2 Live Crew, Salt-n-Pepa, Splack Pack and Digital Underground. Badonkadonks at the ready! Check it out, down under.

Lyrics:

How many kinds, where can we start
We like them dumb and we like them smart
I like the ones with the pretty eyes
Well, I like all kinds of guys
Stop, What happened,
How about the ones we especially like
Which ones
You know the ones with the cars that go
I hear you
Hit it
It was me and the possy with Bunny G
We were cruising in the Jag or the Lambourgini
When low and behold there appeared a mirage
He was hooking up a car in his daddy`s garage
We stopped short, did a double take
He was looking so fly, I thought I wasn`t awake
He was obviously hooking up bass, I asume
But then he turned a little button and the car went boom
We like the cars, the cars that go boom
We`re Tigre and Bunny and we like the boom
We like the cars, the cars that go boom
We`re Tigre and Bunny and we like the boom
We like them short, and we like them tall
We like them one, and we like them all
They`re always adding speakers when they find the room
Coz they know we like the guys with the cars that go boom
And see my boyfriend really knows where it`s at
He`s got 50 inch woofers all along the back
He makes a comment on going to my room
I`d rather stay out with his car that goes boom
We like the cars, the cars that go boom
We`re Tigre and Bunny and we like the boom
We like the cars, the cars that go boom
We`re Tigre and Bunny and we like the boom
---- Instrumental Interlude ----
Now if your car ain`t got it, go out and get it
We like the boom and don`t you forget it
So turn down the treble, and flaunt your bass
So your car could be heard almost any place
Coz when you`re in the street you can`t go far
Without hearing the boom pouring out your car
So if your speaker`s weak, then please turn it off
Coz we like the cars that sound so tough
We like the cars, the cars that go boom
We`re Tigre and Bunny and we like the boom
We like the cars, the cars that go boom
We`re Tigre and Bunny and we like the boom
Everybody just beep your horn
Everybody just beep your horn at us
Now clap
Hit it
Beep, beep, beep, beep, beep
Come on everybody
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
Beep, beep, beep, beep, beep
