Original Lyrics:
But parked in her rickety old garage
Is a brand new, shiny red Super Stock Dodge.

Story about this misheard lyric by: Karen Smith

For years I heard this song thinking it said "super start Dodge". Since "super start" doesn't seem to be an official term, I thought of this part as essentially "filler" lyrics. Then I happened to be checking this song on a lyrics site, for reasons not related to these particular lyrics, when I happened to notice "Super Stock Dodge" as the actual words of this phrase.
