Neat Buick Lyric

6 posts in this topic

I just heard this one online... It's pretty nice. The song is "Grandma Drove a Buick" by Jill King.

It was the age of Harvest Gold and Avocado Green;

Push-Button Radios, Plastic Covered Leather Seats

Dust rising off a gravel road, no seatbelts; five years old;

Like I was riding in a great big boat, into town, Here we go.

We turned the corner onto Shackleberry Avenue;

Like Moses parting the water everybody moves;

I never understood it, but everybody knew that;

Grandma drove a Buick.

And at the age of seventeen waiting for a ride home from school;

Don’t want to leave, no I want to be with all my friends, I thought were cool;

I was embarrassed to be seen with someone as old as history;

I want to die, I want to scream, but here she comes riding down the street.

She turned the corner onto Shackleberry Avenue;

Like Moses parting the water everybody moves;

I never understood it, but everybody knew that;

Grandma drove a Buick.

Now I’m Sitting in the driver’s seat, taking the wheel where her hands used to be;

And all those memories flooding over me are painted Harvest Gold and Avocado Green;

A line of cars start their engines off to the place where she will be resting;

I turn on the lights, put it into drive, I’m at the head of her procession

We turned the corner onto Shackleberry Avenue;

Like Moses parting the water everybody moves;

Puling off to the side, they’re all waving goodbye;

Now I understand why everybody knew;

That I was driving Grandma’s Buick

It was the Age of Harvest Gold and Avocado Green.

Should I post the lyrics to a song called "So What"? :smilewide:

J/K - It's funny to see that Buick was grandma's car. How old is that song?

Nifty!

Buick was my grandma's car too (A Skyhawk)

And then it was my, a 16 year old's, first car too.

I like that crazy "Love Shack" song because of the "I got me a Chrysler; It's a big as a whale And it's about to set Sail!"
