Jalopy Run (true story)


Mom jumped in da car, we gotta get goin,
we're gonna be late, da winds a blowin
Sit in da back, and be a good girl,
Momma's gonna drive,
she's gonna give it a whirl

All excited, as a lil' girl can be,
I cuddled my dolly, close to me
For this is da first time I have ever seen,
my Momma drivin.. Dad's limousine

A mighty big cough, oil a spewin'
Momma can't drive, Dad wasn't foolin'
But Dad was at work, and had no choice
but hand her da keys, for what it's worth

Jerked down da road, jumpin' puddles you see
Me laughin' in da back, she just missed a tree
Hurray for Momma, look at her go!
We made it to da dock, wouldn't ya know

She told me to be quiet, for ole times sake,
for she forgot to release the emergency brake!
