lyrics

In My Motorcar
J.Sule/G.Rogers

On the street I chanced to see
The very first car that belonged to me
Not as bright as it used to be
But shone like gold to the heart of me
Took me back to days gone by
When cousin Jim taught me how to drive
Best friend Jane and her brother Clyde
Came along too for the fun of the ride

Pre-chorus: We’d go driving – out to the country side
Wind in our hair – music in our ears

Off the road the wheels spun deep
Stuck in the mud with a paddock of sheep
The farmer yelled and towed us out
After he’d called us long-haired louts
Skinny-dipping at Boulder Creek
Scaring each other at Lover’s Leap
Wheels our own and time to spare
Raising dust with never a care

Pre-chorus: We’d go driving – out to the country side
Wind in our hair – music in our ears

Chorus
In my motorcar – we learned to drive
In my motorcar – we thought we’d arrived
In my motorcar – we came alive
We learned how the world turned round [We learned how the world turned round]

Wheels kept turning, time went by
Found myself falling for a handsome guy
No more rambling, daytime trips (just)
Night-time driving and road-side trysts
Mother said don’t play with fire
Shun that back seat late at night
Father said don’t drive too fast, or
This joyride gonna be your last

Pre-chorus: We’d go driving – looking for paradise
Back-seat fumblings – opened up my eyes

Chorus

about

Both Sides of the Line Dunedin, New Zealand

Both Sides of the Line's cd, Sideshow, is " a record chock full of slinky country tunes, built upon 21st Century ‘adult contemporary’ bones. Digging a little beneath the surface you will find cooing swing come-ons here (Magical Man), fleeting touches of Americana there (Macs General Store), rockabilly beats and soft rock tendencies throughout." (Ricardo Kerr, NZ Musician). ... more
