My Baby's Like an Automobile


I really like this song and I love the slide solo, we had a bit of trouble trying to find the right piano groove for Don Hopkins, but after simplifying and simplifying, we got it. Lovely playing by Don, sounds great. Had a lot of fun writing it with a couple of spare verses to boot... it's a very rude song, especially the last verse, which I hereby apologise for, but it wrote itself and I simply couldn't help but leave it in... I remember all of us blushing the first time we played it. We often play it first song of the night for volume reasons but to this day, no-one has ever commented upon it's rude lyrics.... probably cause it sounds like such a lovely little song... which it is...

My baby's like an automobile (x 2)
I tell you man I got a good deal
My baby's like an automobile

She's got a little red bonnet,
A size 7 boot
Tell her where you want to go
She'll take you any route.

So wonderful to ride
She feels so good inside
No need to telephone
I love it when I drive her home

There was a little problem
We had to rectify
She looks a whole lot better
Without  a  spare tyre

We start a little journey
I begin to navigate
She gets so excited
When I try to deviate

When she starts talkin
Well I begin to fear
She wants a driver in the front
And another in the rear
