lyrics

Well, I should give thanks, when I turn the key the engine cranks. But of all the pains and all the pranks, nothing compares to buying my land cruiser.
The owners said is was a hell of a deal. ‘Dollar less it would of been a steel. My thing is I go by feel. Don’t know what I was feeling.
They said the car was quite the beast. All that power, feel the torque. Put your boot in, it really snorts (yeah, anyway). This all contradicted the mechanics report. See the mechanic said “first things first you’ll need to adjust the clutch but more to the point the vehicle’s fucked”

Sometimes I feel like my land cruiser, a body with a little bit of rust
If carry on I have to then carry on I must

So I drove away with a rock in my guts. The roof lining fell on my head. I couldn’t see. I thought this sucks!
I called up the owners to say there’d been a mistake, “you sold me a lemon, I ordered a stake”. The said they didn’t know. Didn’t know who I was. I said “thats alright be a good sport and wear a bowtie, I’ll see you in court”

Sometimes I feel like my land cruiser, a body with a little bit of rust
If carry on I have to then carry on I must

With my feathers ruffled the wind blew and I got to thinking about what to do and I thought maybe going to court wasn’t the thing to do. It’s about being a decent human being. Not doing what you’re told.
Five grand I paid. Thats three for the vehicle and two for the lesson. Don’t follow your ego

Sometimes I feel like my land cruiser, a body with a little bit of rust
If carry on I have to then carry on I must

So I drive the thing and with every thud and clanking sound I start to wonder if I’ll get to town, but I do, I make it to the shops. Take the back way, avoid the cops.
Now when I turn left well thats alright. But when I turn right and it turns left well thats not right, it’s left. Bloody scary. And the relay’s blown so the lights strobe which is all good unless you need to see the road. But don’t get me wrong I like the ride, despite the grief and painful side. See, I am to my Soul like my land cruiser is to me. A vehicle……a vehicle

Sometimes I feel like my land cruiser, a body with a little bit of rust
If carry on I have to then carry on I must
