SHE THINKS I STEAL CARS
(author unknown)

Well, just because the cops were here on Tuesday,
Just because they put me behind bars,
Just because they found transmissions in my bath tub,
She thinks I steal cars.

If she's happy thinking I'm a car thief,
Maybe it's because I gave her such a deal,
But the cops keep asking those embarrassing questions
Like, where'd you get the freshly painted Oldsmobile?

*Just because I'm always out past midnight,
Just because I hang around in bars,
Just because I never drive one more than two days,
She thinks I steal cars.

Just because my attic's full of hub caps,
Just because my cellar's full of tires,
Just because I ground the numbers off her engine,
She thinks I steal cars.
