The Lyrics

I remember our old Imperial.
The transmission was controlled by push buttons.
I remember our big black New Yorker,
It had a 440 engine and looked cool.
And I was driving a LeBaron,
When all of my friends
Were driving Toyotas and Chevrolets.
I drove Chryslers when Chryslers were not cool.

I remember the late 70's,
Chrysler was not doing well at all.
I remembered Hemis and six packs,
And the 300 letter series
I took a lot of ribbing,
'Cause Chrysler was near death.
Now look at everybody tryin' to drive what I drove then.
I drove Chryslers when Chryslers were not cool.

Ooh, I drove Chryslers when Chryslers were not cool.
I was Mopar, from my head down to my shoes.
I still drive my favorite brand.
What you see is nothing new.
I drove Chryslers when Chryslers were not cool.

Instrumental break.

They call us complete morons for not driving a Ford.
I'm just glad we're in a country where we're all free to choose
I drove Chryslers when Chryslers were not cool.

Hey, I drove Chryslers when Chryslers were not cool.
Yeah, and I was Mopar, from my head down to, oh, my shoes.
I still drive my favorite brand.
What you see is nothing new
I drove Chryslers when Chryslers were not cool.

I drove Chryslers when Chryslers were not cool.

Thank you, Diva. This is one of the few country tunes on Amiright and yes, that '64 Imperial was the first neat car my family had
