The Lyrics

Is it just me, or is there some sort of connection? This is the third time I've used Harley Earl's most famous cars as the subject for an Anita Baker parody. Will I stop promoting LeSabres, Rendezvous and Rainiers this way? Yeah...as soon as Tiger Woods wins a major on the PGA Tour again.
Ain't there something really special that it's just the perfect car for me
I can see myself in luxury that is very special in every way
The Three Shields look familiar, and they look the best in red, white and blue
I know that Tiger's friends with Harley Earl, and together they will sell me one today

They're the two men you see in the Buick ads
And they know for sure, that a Buick has the Spirit of American Style, baby
Yes, they know for sure, that a Buick has the Spirit of American Style, honey

Everybody's got opinions about what car they see themselves in
They don't know what Tiger Woods knows now, Harley Earl will have to make them think again

They're the two men you see in the Buick ads
For a hundred years, it has always been the Spirit of American Style, baby
And forevermore, it'll always be the Spirit of American Style, listen baby

Somebody knows it, somebody sold this car to me
I heard Harley's voice say he had come back to sell it to me
And I thank Harley for this, and I feel as if I'm riding on cloud nine
It's my car, I tell you, the right car, and I think I'm gonna drive it forever

They're the two men you see in the Buick ads
And they know for sure, that a Buick has the Spirit of American Style, listen baby
I'll bet everything on my golf swing it's...(Spirit of American Style)
Got the Spirit, baby

Mmm, ooh...(Spirit of American Style), mmm

(Spirit of American Style...Spirit of American Style...Spirit of American Style...Spirit of American Style)

Buick's slogan should be "The Spirit of breaking down."
