    It’s been a long journey waiting for my (and everyone’s) Model 3. The news of production starting even makes it feel longer. So as we await news about details of the first production model, I wrote this song.



    Enjoy

    James, Thanks for the video. The piano is overpowering your voice. Please post the lyrics. Looking forward to a re-record with the mic positioned to hear your voice better.

    Sorry bout that! Thanks for the feedback. Gonna do a studio version soon.

    Here are the lyrics:

    Just a Boy Who Wants a Tesla
    Words and music by James Merryman

    I’m just a boy who wants a Tesla
    Wanna navigate life pollution free
    Wanna leave my mark on the world without carbon
    And never letting the trolls bother me


    I’ve never liked the smell of gasoline
    You know its bad if it can kill you in a garage
    In 2017, we can do better
    If we charge out phones
    We can charge our cars


    I’m just a boy who wants a Tesla
    Wanna navigate life pollution free
    Wanna leave my mark on the world without carbon
    And never letting the trolls bother me


    I can see the visions becoming clearer
    One day we might call mars a second home
    Breathing in the air thats clear again
    And the freedom to roam where we roam


    We’re just a world who wants a Tesla
    Wanna navigate our lives pollution free
    Wanna leave our mark on the world without carbon
    and never letting the trolls both me

    Thank you thank you! Well given that I reserved mine April 2016, I probably won’t get mine till late 2018 or later!

    lol I’m 26 but thought it seemed more dreamy to say boy than man or guy. It’s about channeling the little one inside us that dreams big!
    Thanks for listening!

    I was quite naive to assume that you must be a teenage boy but now that you explained it: That makes perfect sense. That's what art and creativity is all about!

    Thanks for the enlightenment!

    Hi Mark, recorded a studio version just for you: Just a Boy Who Wants a Tesla
    Enjoy!

    Also tweaked the lyrics a bit - instead of 'never letting the trolls bother me' changed it to 'forget that gas, I'm going green!'

    I'm gonna try to go to a Tesla location this weekend to film a better music video for it : )

    James, Thanks for posting the link. The lyric change is excellent and the studio version sounds great.

    A Tesla Store, a busy Supercharger location and a Tesla Service center are all good locations for viewing Tesla EVs. Tesla is still working on a Supercharger in your area. Supercharger - Austin, TX

    The progress that Tesla has made in the past decade is making it possible for everyone to drive a Tesla. It won't be long now before the dream of Model 3 is a reality everywhere.

    Nice job, James! The only part I didn't love was the troll lyric, and I see you changed it in the studio version with a perfect lyric and message. Well done.
