lyrics

I heard them southern boys \ Braggin’ about their toys \ And how they’d play me for a fool \ Well, I know what Freud would say \ It ain’t just for haulin’ hay \ They’re compensatin’ for triflin’ little tools \ You know a jacked-up truck \ Won’t get you any luck \ Not with the kind of girls I know \ No matter what you say \ Good ol’ boy, there ain’t no way \ I’m climbin’ in the bed of your Silverado \ Well, gimme a fella with a hatchback \ Lay down the seats and they fold flat \ If it don’t fit, we’ve got a roof-rack \ Yeah, gimme a fella with a hatchback \ He rolled up to the light \ Big ol’ tires n’ Wranglers, tight \ Expectin’ me to flutter and a-swoon \ But I’ve got my eye upon \ That Gremlin over yon’ \ Reckon he’ll take me for a spin real soon \ You know a jacked-up truck \ Won’t get you any luck \ I’d rather ride low to the ground \ We’d snuggle up real nice \ An 8-track player and some fuzzy dice \ That Pinto’s good enough \ To take me all the way downtown \ Well, gimme a fella with a hatchback \ Lay down the seats and they fold flat \ If it don’t fit, we’ve got a roof-rack \ Yeah, gimme a fella with a hatchback \ Gimme a fella with a hatchback \ Lay down the seats and they fold flat \ If it don’t fit, we’ve got a roof-rack \ Yeah, gimme a fella with a hatchback \ You know a jacked-up truck \ Won’t get you any luck \ And I hear to tell that’s your goal \ You’re all hung up on size \ But I’ve got a thing for the kind of guy \ Who isn’t makin’ up for things \ With a rig that’s rollin’ coal \ Yeah, baby \ There ain‘t nothin’ wrong with that little Fiat \ Is that a Plymouth Champ? Mmmmmm…. \ Oldsmobile Firenza... \ Look at that cute lil’ VW Rabbit... \ Dodge Omni...Mercury Bobcat... \ Chevy Vega...Oh yeah! \ You know what they say about guys with small cars? \ They get good gas mileage
