My Old Yellow Car

In the style of

Dan Seals

Lyrics

she weren't much
to look at
she weren't much
to ride

she was missing
a window
on her
passenger's side

the floorboard
was patched up
with paper and tar
but i really
was somethin'
in my old yellow car

an american boy
with his hands
on the wheel
of a dream
that was made of
american steel

though the seats
had the smell of
a nickel cigar
i really was somethin'
in my old yellow car

somewhere in a pile
of rubber and steel
there's a rusty
old shell of
an automobile

and if engines
could run off
desires alone
that old yellow car
would be
drivin' me home

there's the seat
where poor billy
threw up on his date
and where
larry and sandy
could no longer wait

there was no road
too winding
and nowhere too far
with two bucks of gas
and my old yellow car

somewhere in a pile
of rubber and steel
there's a rusty
old shell of
an automobile

and if engines
could run off
desires alone
that old yellow car
would be
drivin' me home

take a look at me now
throwin' money
around
i'm payin' somebody
to drive me downtown

got a mercedes-benz
with a tv and bar
and god i wish
i was drivin'
my old yellow car
god i wish i was drivin'
my old yellow car
