It was powder blue with chips missing from each door
Tears in the seats both front and back
Ratty shredded carpet showing off the floorboards
Front windshield with foggy corners and a big ol’ crack.
Had a beat up convertible top but all the GT trim intact
The sweet little beauty had plenty of potential
Despite a broken gas gauge and a non existent tach
A slipping push-button and fluid gushing out of the differential.
No brakes, no battery, no chicks, no flattery
Cruisin’ it home smoking and sputterin’
No working ammeter, water temp or speedometer
Just frozen straight nines across the odometer.
Didn’t take the cops long to flash me with lights
Told ’em I’d just bought it that night
They joked about my choice of rides
Then really laughed when they saw the inside.
Saw those cops just the other day
Neither really had much to say
So much for their poking fun and jokes
‘Cause I just left them in a cloud of BFGOOD smoke.
