Al Anderson – Under The Hood lyrics

Well, my first love was a little corvette
All done up in lipstick red
I thought it'd last forever till the motor blew
Well, I guess I didn't look close enough
It's a little bit just like falling in love
Looks don't mean a thing if the heart ain't true

It might be a cool ride, smooth lines,
Something been custom made out in Hollywood
But when you get done gazing at the outside
You better star checking out the inside
If you want a love built to last you better look real good
And see what's under the hood

Sporty little model standing by the door
So I took her for a spin on the old dance floor
Headlights shining bright but nobody home
Now I need something that's more my speed
Got a whole lotta time to find what I need
So I put her in park and headed on off for home

[Chorus:] (2x)

You better look real good
And see what's under the hood
