The Lyrics

long distance runnin' ?
what you standin' there for ?
get up, get out...get out of the door
you need some new rubber
we have brands, galore
whitewalls, you after ?
they're here by the score
we have treads with big hatches
they're new and real sound
there's a big sale tomorrow
why not come on down ?

tires...tires, i'm a-mountin'
tires...tires, i'm a-mountin'

open most days
and we're right down the street
ten years on this spot
and our price can't be beat
the product, you're given
is covered, complete
call us by phone
no one else can compete
your pleasure, our business
we cater to you
sorta old fashioned
like a dream come true

tires...tires, i'm a-mountin'
tires...tires, i'm a-mountin'

long distance runnin' ?
what you holdin' out for ?
when you're in motion
you don't want traction, poor
your tires bald with age ?
better head for our door
its great deals, we have
why you wanna pay more ?
the counsel, we give
is upfront and unfake
there'll be safe miles beyond
if its care, you take

tires...tires, i'm a-mountin'
tires...tires, i'm a-mountin'

DKTOS but you've just given me a long distance idea, next winter I'm gonna write about running to some of the songs I do run to, that'll be a great way to combine getting out and getting ideas down.
