Moonpools & Caterpillars — The Buick lyrics

I tried to see what in my life could be so wrong
I figured it out - all I need is a car to be so strong
So here I sit on the hood of a Buick
I feel real cool and the chicks all dig it
Things are going to change and I think it's happening now

Mama said, "Oh dear baby don't leave me"
But I'm a redneck adventurous pitch forked pup from the farm
And now I cruise on the high road to China
Got girls lined up way back to Ohio
Slicked back hair with pomade that just won't stop

Ahd he said, "Ahh shucks!"
I figured it out all wrong

I wrecked that car on the night of my very first prom
Betty Lou got out and walked, in short, she was gone
So here I sit on this heap of a Buick
Best girl gone, oh I just knew it
Things are going to change and I think it's happening now

And he said, "Ahh shucks!"
I figured it out all wrong
The only thing that really matters now -
If you ain't got a car - stay far!
