Oh Maybelline, why can't you be true
Oh Maybelline, why can't you be true
You've started back doin'
The things you used to do.

As I was motivatin' over the hill
I saw Maybelline in a Coupe DeVille
Cadillac rollin' on an open road
But nothin' outrun my V8 Ford
Cadillac doin' about ninety-five
Bumper to bumper rollin' side to side

Oh Maybelline, why can't you be true
Oh Maybelline, why can't you be true
You've started back doin'
The things you used to do.

Well, the Cadillac pulled up ahead of the Ford
The Ford got hot and wouldn't do no more
It done got cloudy and started to rain
I tooted my horn for the passing lane
The rain water poured up under my motor hood
I knew that wern't doin' my motor good.

Oh Maybelline, why can't you be true
Oh Maybelline, why can't you be true
You've started back doin'
The things you used to do.

--- Instrumental ---

Well now the heat went down
And the motor cooled down
And that's when I heard that highway sound
Cadillac lookin' like a ton of lead
A hundred and ten, a half a mile ahead
Cadillac lookin' like it's sittin' still
I caught Maybelline at the top of the hill.

Oh Maybelline, why can't you be true
Oh Maybelline, why can't you be true
You've started back doin'
The things you used to do.

--- Instrumental ---

Oh Maybelline, why can't you be true
Oh Maybelline, why can't you be true
You've started back doin'
The things you used to do...
