Lou Christie – If My Car Could Only Talk lyrics

She met me at the station 'cause I'm comin' home on my leave
I'll let her use my xke
So she could drive around & think of me.
Baby, I'm home, you look surprised
I see it on your face
Where's the old crowd? Do they still hang out at the pizza place?
A flash of suspicion, you found a new way of kissin'

(Watch your step, Sarah Jane, I'll catch you yet) Sarah Jane
(Watch your step, Sarah Jane, I'll catch you yet)
Sarah Jane, if my car could only talk to me
If my car could only talk to me
It would tell me 'bout you, baby
(Where you are, baby)

When I cleaned my car I found pictures from the penny arcade
In my ashtray.
Underneath the seat I found a cigarette lighter
Engraved "Love, You're baby--Sarah Jane"
Since I've been home, I found evidence of a love affair.
Tickets to the drive-in show,
A fool but once, this I swear
Don't make excuses & cry.
I can't stand girls that lie


(These eyes, these eyes, these eyes these eyes)


So a toast to red, white & blue
I saved my ring finding out that we were through
Breakin' up is so hard to do.
Walk away before I start crying too

Baby I'm gone.
