In Your Automobile



 Genre: Country-Western

Get Flash to see this player.

I commute about 45 minutes each way to work and home. Get a lot of songwritin' done behind the wheel, and a lot of observing the world from my 4-wheeled metal box. This is a FUN simple silly song about the automobile in everyone's life (almost everyone). Not a very good recording, but I hope you enjoy it anyhow! (Also note the brief allusion to Bare Naked Ladies music near the end - love those guys!)

Ev’ry body has a someplace that they’re goin’ to
Workin’ or playin’ or just stuff to do
And ev’ry set of wheels has a tale to tell.
Whatever it is, hey, I wish you well
The radio playin’ some drivin’ song
Mighty fine day for jus’ cruisin’ along
Spend some time behind the wheel of your automobile (of your automobile).

Day or night or in between you gotta go
Over the limit, or just take it slow
Rain or shine of hot or cold, the road don’t care
Where ver you go, it’ll take you there
It might be old or it might be new
Smell like a showroom or stink like poo
Spend some time behind the wheel of your automobile (of your automobile).

Ev’ry body’s got their own drivin’ style
Caution or cursin’ or wearin’ a smile
Flyin’ down the road buckled into the seat
For some it’s a chore – for some it’s a treat.
Go like light’nin’ or crawl like a snail
Drive like a fool and you land in jail
Spend some time behind the wheel of your automobile (of your automobile).

Soccer mom’s with children in their S-U-Vs
The mid-life crises in their M-G-Bs
Eat a burrito while you drive with your knee
Little old lady who can hardly see
Tricked out monster or a model-T
Or Alan Jackson in a Mercury
Teen-age couples where they shouldn’t be
Stuck in a rut or drivin’ wild and free
I’ll give you a ride if you’re nice to me
Before we get going, kid, you gotta go “weeee”
We could go on, but you might agree
Time to stop singin’ and grab my keys
Another postcard – with chimpanzee….s
Spend some time behind the wheel of your automobile (of your automobile).

Just a folk singer. Well - mostly a folk singer, but I like to try just about every style a middle-class white guy from Mid-Michigan can sincerely try. Be sure to check out my "band" — I used to play R&R with these guys back in the 70s, but now we'... [see more]
