My body is the car that I've been driving, around for thirty six years. My
Body the car.
Slowly burning out the rubber and stripping the gears. My body the car.
Remember the time when a cigarette burned a hole in my skin. There was
Nobody in to put out the fire. Lost in a skid on a rumbling road. Where the
C.B. kids all mumble in code.
You're a liar, you're a liar. And if the telephone rings, it will be my
Doctor, telling me to cool it - oh yeah. I don't want no x-rays, or any
Brand new drug you've never tried. I don't want no hoorays, dressed up as
Doctors poking around inside. Ooh to him I'll always be a motor car. My
Body the car.
My body is the car that I've been driving, around for thirty six years. My
Body the car.
Slowly burning out the rubber and stripping the gears. My body the car.
There's a man with a suitcase, with a whole bunch of shirts and magazines.
Selling roadmaps and bibles and benzadrines.
For the days and the nights I stare at the mirror. And the days and the
Nights, they stare back at me.
My body the car. Is a little older. My body the car. Still looking good. My
Body the car.
I need a hard shoulder. My body the car.
To look under the hood. My body the car.
Still ticking over. My body the car.
I don't know why it should. My body the car.
She's leaking oil. My body the car.
The colour of blood. My body the car.
My body the car. My body the car.
My body the car. My body the car.
She drives me crazy. My body the car.
When she rattles and shakes. My body the car.
She makes me nervous. My body the car.
She ain't got no brakes. My body the car.
My body the car. My body the car.
Crash!
