Lyrics to The Car Song THE CAR SONG

[HARRY]





The weekend is the weekend

And it's sunny in the park

I'll stay here with my beer and fish and chips till it gets dark

I've got a lot of homework

But homework he can wait

I never start my homework till its already too late

My parents say think about your future and my teachers say the same

But it's hard

When there's a basketball game in the park

It's 1998

And everybody's saying:

“Harry, you're going to be a lawyer some day…”



It's Monday bloody Monday

And there's two things I forgot

I forgot to do my homework

And I've only got one sock

I'm halfway through a test

But I just can't concentrate

I'm sitting next to Fontaine

I want to ask her on a date

I really want to start a conversation

But each time she walks past

I start choking on my pencil

And fall flat on my ass

I need to concentrate

I have to get this grade

Or I might fail to be a lawyer someday



BRIDGE

But just right now

Can' think of anything better to do

Than just sit down at the piano and a write this tune

And maybe later

Maybe later in the afternoon

I'll sit back and relax

And think of all the things I'm going to do…



CHORUS

Someday…

I'll buy an old car

Someday…

I'll get that car to start

Someday…

I'll learn how to drive too

And then Someday…

Imagine all the things I could do.



(That was 1998 now

Bring it forward to the present day now

Cause some things have changed

but some things never change)



The weekend is the weekend

And it's sunny in the park

I'll stay here with my beer and fish 'n' chips till it gets dark

I just saw Peter Parsons

Who used to be in my class

I always gave him wedgies cause I thought he worked too hard

He said, “Harry, life is great -

I feel so happy these days -

I'm a litigation lawyer -

So I got it made

I'm going out with Fontaine

Rememer her from tenth grade?

I drive a Porsche so I can't complain…”



BRIDGE

Shit! And look at me can't think of anything better to do

That just sit down at the piano and write this tune

And maybe later

Maybe later in the afternoon

I'll sit back and relax and think of all the things I'm going to do…
