this isn't just a car

(what are the white kids doin'?)

A song about and older guy running off with a young girl.

so Vicki walked in...trailing thunder

had a St. Christopher's medal parked under her arm

she said "hey buster...youíre corkiní my bottle

are you ready to walk, man...or what?"

verse 1:

don't ask me if my brainís packed, child

i'll just talk talk talk talk talk about myself

still waiting...still waiting

way way waiting...for something worth waiting foooooooor example,

reintro:

okay, okay so we know that like...life's not fair...?

well, that's why we're here...to fix it

to make this planet nice so that aliens watching us from outer space don't deem us unworthy and...pulverize us

verse 2:

which is exactly how iím feeling

there is war between my ears

youíre my mop...and everything is leaking

ever notice how at times like these

all your cornball truths get revealed?

like "money always slums with the dumb ones"

and "your best friends are still your wheels"?

refrain:

what are the white kids doin?

what are the white kids doin about it?

chorus 1:

this isnít just a car...itís a collision

wiping out my life

with an engine

this isnít just a car...itís a decision/direction

this isnít just a car...

wow...thereís a lion on this pack of camels!

smile as the sticks smear by

iím all hands, and vicki is all handles

ever wonder how at times like these

all the water in the world is used ?

any regrets? .yeah...shoulda brought my bongos

-or-

ever wonder how at times like these

if the giblets & neck & heart that come in the that little packet inside a chicken you buy from the food store really came from the same chicken?

(WHAT THE HELL AM I SO HAPPY FOR?)

damn construction...
