The Lyrics

a young boy with his first car and his first date.. ahh sweet love with 300,000 miles on the clock and a late night breakdown..
BOY:

I remember every little thing
because it happened only yesterday
dinner time was great
and there was not another chick in sight
and I never had a girl smelling any better than she did
and at the auto school
were laughing over me that night....

all that bondo was dry and it held so tight
it never looked so good the sprayed on paint was right
light aglowing on the dashboard and it was on the right
glowing on the dashboard and it was on the right
aw come on not tonight!
come on not tonight!
though it's old and rusty, it was cheap, all right?
I can see warning lights on the dashboard right...


GIRL:

Ain't no doubt about it
this old heap is messed
this is the worst car ever seen
and now I am stressed


Ain't no doubt about it
could have done without it
ain't no doubt about it
now I am really stressed


BOY:

Cause it's the worst car you have seen
but can we still caress?



Baby now the bitch won't start
at least we got the radio
we'll be waiting so long
for help to come along and we'll move right on

and I aughta let you know
now I know I won't get it
now open up the hood I'll try to make it good
it'll be all right
now I wanna make the motor run

all that bondo was dry and it held so tight
it never looked so good the sprayed on paint was right
light aglowing on the dashboard and it was on the right
glowing on the dashboard and it was on the right
aw come on not tonight!
come on not tonight!
though it's old and rusty, it was cheap, all right?
I can see warning lights on the dashboard right...

we got to do what we can
and let auto major do the rest
ain't no doubt about it
this old heap is messed
can't remember how it's been
you look so....

we're gonna roll all the way tonight
we're gonna roll all the way
and tonight's the night


RADIO BROADCAST:

Ok here we go, we got a real traffic cluster going here, one down, 4-ways are on, no doors, , bottom of the pile.., window wind up and there it is, a sh*tbox in the middle, look at him go.
This boy might really die!
He's pounding fists and really turning it on now, he's not letting up at all, he's gonna try a tow truck the car is slotted out by centre.. here comes the snow, and what a snow! He's gonna slide in
the ditch...! here he comes, he's out! No, wait, safe - safe for seconds..., this kid really makes things happen out there.
now he just stopped on a grate here's the ditch - he's going, and what a jump he's got, he's trying for third, here's the snow its in the dirt - safely heard!! Holy cow, scolding face! He's taking a pretty big chance out there, almost daring her to get him off. The driver glances over, zips up and it blundered blundered on the pick up line!! the suicide squeeze is on! Here he comes, squeeze play, it's gonna be close, here's the snow, here's the play at her face... holy cow, I think he's gonna make it!



GIRL:

Stop right there!
I gotta know right now!
Before we go any further --!
buy a beemer
get a coupon for gas
be a redeemer
will you ever drive me
will you make me so happy for the rest of my life
will you buy me a benz if I become your wife,
will you drive me
lease a beemer forever
will you lease me
a convertible benz
that would make me so happy for the rest of my life
and I'd take you today, but close em up as your wife
we gotta go right now
we gotta golase the beemer
if you love me,
then I'll have it forever..........



BOY:

get a lease for it?
baby maybe get a lease on it
get a lease on it?
we'll go to the dealer in the morning

get a lease for it?
baby maybe get a lease on it
get a lease on it?
we'll go to the dealer in the morning

get a lease on it?
baby baby get a lease on it
get a lease on it?
we'll go to the dealer in the morning


GIRL:

I gotta know right now!
if you love me
you will get one with leather
it would please me
it would please me forever
air conditioning convertible for the rest of my life
that would make me your girl, it could make me your wife
we gotta go right now
if you love me,
we will get one with leather


BOY:

get a lease for it?
baby maybe get a lease on it
get a lease on it?
we'll go to the dealer in the morning
get a lease for it...

GIRL:

Will you get me the leather?

BOY:

get a lease for it

GIRL:

Will you get one with leather

BOY:

I cannot take it any longer
lord I am dazed
and now this feeling's come upon me
for the cash I'd saved
I started swearing oh my God felt like a married slave
I would be paying till the end of time
swore that I'd be paying till the end of time

So now I'm paying till the end of time
the leather one will arrive
Cause if I gotta spend another dollar on you
I don't think that I can really survive
I'll never break the contract or forgive you, cow
and god only know how much I owe right now
I'm paying till the end of time
it's all that I can do
paying till the end of time till that damned benz lease is through


BOY:

It was long ago and it was far away
the car is so much better than it is today

GIRL:

It never felt so good
It never felt so right
those lights were glowing
on the dashboard they were off to the right
