The Lyrics

Maybe
I don't understand cars much
Can't change a couple quarts of oil
All I know is you get in and drive
Until the thing stops running
Then I watch the radiator boil

No I don't know what makes mechanics so good
Oh Lord, please don't let me work under the hood

Baby, If you go 'way with me
You may not finish the ride
For I checked the brakes and transmission just the other day
And I think I left a wrench inside

No I can't repair quite as well as I should
Oh Lord, please don't let me work under the hood

If I seem iffy, I want you to know
That I never meant to break it down so hard
Cars are my problem and I hope that you have
One of those AAA membership cards

I don't have a clue

Oh, no baby, I ain't no grease monkey
Where the dipstick goes I don't know
Sometimes I sit there long in that traffic
Feel like a great big doofus waiting for a tow

No I can't repair quite as well as I should
Oh Lord, please don't let me work under the hood

No I don't know what makes mechanics so good
Oh Lord, please don't let me work under the hood
