From the recording Everybody Wants To Drive My Car
Everybody Wants To Drive My Car
1. Everybody wants to finish my sentence,
but I don't really like what they say.
Their spitting anger lacks eloquence,
their worn out clichÃ© is a bit passÃ©.
I start to speak and they ask a question,
open my mouth and they walk away.
I cut the wire on my transmitter,
did you receive my last communiquÃ©?
2. Everybody wants to paint my house,
but the colors they choose just scream.
Do they think I'll be as quiet as a mouse,
while they brush away all my dreams?
Then they don't want to hold my ladder,
so that I can get way up high.
Here comes someone with another bucket and,
what I did yesterday's not even dry!
3. Everybody wants to drive my car,
but nobody wants to pay for the gas.
Then when I need her she won't go far,
you know I think they all drive too fas.
They want to turn down all the side streets,
and now the damn thing is obsolete!
