Carburetors man... that's what life is all about
[That's what life is all about]
[That's what life is all about]
[That's what life is all about]
[That's what it's all about]

I was not myself last night - lost a fight, my woody barely running
By a dude I should have beat, and on the street a blow like that is
stunning
I finally lost control - I tore my tuck-n-roll

{1st chorus}
Upholstery - Where my baby sits up close to me [ooo aah ooo aah]
That's supposed to be what our life is all about [all about]
Upholstery where my baby sits up close to me [ooo aah ooo aaah]
That's supposed to be what our life is all about [all about]

Of all life's mysteries the greatest one I've seen [tell me why]
My short runs better when it's clean

I was not myself last night - I ran a light without my registration
Where the cops were bound to see, and you know me - already on probation
I wound up on parole - I tore my tuck-n-roll

{repeat 1st chorus 2x}

Upholstery - Where my baby sits up close to me [ooo aaah ooo aaah]
That's supposed to be what life is all about[ooo aaah all about]
Upholstery where my baby sits up close to me [ooo aah ooo aah]
That's supposed to be what our life is all about [that's what it's all
about]

My upholstery [aaah ooo aaah ooo aaah]
Where my baby sits up close to me [ooo aah ooo aah]
That's supposed to be what our life is all about
[All about]
