Perfect Colorado blonde in a Cabriolet
Top down, pony tail, Broadway
I’m driving this ’87 Aries’
She won’t even look my way
But that can’t chase this buzz away

Dad car, driving my dad car
Dad car, got a date in my dad car

Got a bashed-in fender and an oil leak
Blue book value is mighty weak
Chassis is rusty and the body’s beat
I’m so cheap but she thinks it’s sweet

She likes to see me drive up in my dad car
Dad car, Dad car

Now the stock market’s down but it don’t make me cry
I don’t wanna be no rich guy
You say wages are low and real estate’s high?
I don’t care as long as she’ll ride In my dad car

Dad car
She loves my Dad car
