Pink Cadillac

OK, how many people remember/know the song Pink Cadillac? I'm posting the lyrics below if you want them. But I have a question, who sang the original? I've heard 2 versions, one by Jerry Lee Louis and the other by Bruce Springsteen, I'd have to say, I prefer the Boss' version of it.
Here's a way to know if your car's window tints are too dark: you have to roll down the window to see if cross traffic is coming. I saw someone do that today, that's just wrong.
Another thing not to do in traffic, back out of the turn lane and into another lane. I saw someone do this, and it was a good thing there was no one very close to him (behind him, or in the lane he decided to go into).
I'm so excited Basketball season starts tomorrow. Now if you know me, I don't like/care about sports, but I love basketball season here, cause I work at the coliseum where our games are played. So it's a busy time for me, and I get paid (not a ton) for the games, and I'm very much in need of money this year. I just took out more money from my account today, more money that I don't have. I hate being poor.

You may think I'm foolish
For the foolish things I do
You may wonder how come I love you
When you get on my nerves like you do
Well baby you know you bug me
There ain't no secret 'bout that
Well come on over here and hug me
Baby I'll spill the facts
Well honey it ain't your money
'Cause baby I got plenty of that
I love you for your pink Cadillac
Crushed velvet seats
Riding in the back
Oozing down the street
Waving to the girls
Feeling out of sight
Spending all my money
On a Saturday night
Honey I just wonder what you do there in back
Of your pink Cadillac
Pink Cadillac

Well now way back in the Bible
Temptations always come along
There's always somebody tempting
Somebody into doing something they know is wrong
Well they tempt you, man, with silver
And they tempt you, sir, with gold
And they tempt you with the pleasures
That the flesh does surely hold
They say Eve tempted Adam with an apple
But man I ain't going for that
I know it was her pink Cadillac
Crushed velvet seats
Riding in the back
Oozing down the street
Waving to the girls
Feeling out of sight
Spending all my money
On a Saturday night
Honey I just wonder what it feels like in the back
Of your pink Cadillac
Now some folks say it's too big
And uses too much gas
Some folks say it's too old
And that it goes too fast
But my love is bigger than a Honda
It's bigger than a Subaru
Hey man there's only one thing
And one car that will do
Anyway we don't have to drive it
Honey we can park it out in back
And have a party in your pink Cadillac

Ok, my guess is Sammy Masters, the man who penned it in 1955.
